How to Set Timer on Ollny Fairy Lights

Are you concerned about forgetting to switch your lights on, and off?

Well, a programmable timer might assist you. All Ollny Fairy Lights come with an easy-to-use remote control, so there’ll be no need to locate the control box to adjust the lights' settings. All you will need to do is use your remote controls. We even include a free battery for you.

Before using the remote for the first time, remove the protective clear film that covers the battery, this will then activate it (as seen below).

Section 1:The remotes that feature the ‘TIME(R)’ button

After turning on the lights by pushing the green ON button, press the 'TIMER' button to program the timer, which automatically defaults to 6 hours on and 18 hours off. Please know that there's only one time setting for this kind of remote.

For example, if you press the 'TIMER' button once at 7:00 p.m., the fairy lights will come on, and stay on for 6 hours, then turn off at 1:00 a.m. the following morning. It will stay off for 18 hours and then turn on again at 7:00 p.m. 

To cancel the timer, just press the 'TIMER' button again.

Section 2: The remotes that feature the ‘TIME(R) OFF’ button

To program timer settings with these remotes, start by pushing the green ON button. Then press the 'TIMER OFF' button, followed by the number of hours you want your lights to be on.

2H: 2hrs on, 22hrs off

4H: 4hrs on, 20hrs off

6H: 6hrs on, 18hrs off

8H: 8hrs on, 16hrs off

6639H: 6hrs on, 6hrs off; 3hrs on, 9hrs off, REPEAT

To cancel the timer setting, just press the 'TIMER OFF' button one again.

Keep in mind: For setting the timer function, always start with how long you want your lights to stay ON for. The rest of the hours within the 24-hour time frame the lights will be off.  The lights/timer will repeat this pattern until you stop or change the timer setting, or until remote battery requires changing.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to message us at
