A control device for controlling the time sequence activation of a wall mounted toggle switch is mounted directly to the toggle switch cover plate. The device is then programmed to turn the switch on and off in accordance with the programmed entry instructions. A sliding plate within the device contacts and moves the toggle into its on and off position in accordance with the program. The housing of the device defines an opening large enough for the toggle to be manually manipulated without removal of any components of the device.
