Automatic Operation

It is possible to automatically turn the socket ON in Mode 3 to Mode 8 by sending an automated SMS (text message). A text message will turn on the phone back light for about 5 seconds thereby operating the socket in these Modes. You cannot turn the socket OFF with an automated text (except in Mode 8). The socket will of course turn off after the time specified in mode 3 to 8. There are several FREE APPS that send a text message on a schedule of your choosing such as SMS SCHEDULER which is available for Android and iPhone users. There are also SMS Schedulers for Windows phones.
Beware that the sending of texts is not 100% reliable depending on carrier.
