What is the difference between momentary, latched and timer switches?

When you press a momentary switch, the device stays on as long as you maintain pressure on the switch. A latch switch turns on the device when the switch is pressed once and turns off the device when the switch is pressed again. Pressing a timer switch turns on a device for a preset amount of time (0 to 120 seconds). Enabling Devices has a Switch Modifier (#605) that will change any momentary switch into a latch or timer switch. Our 5-in-1 Switch Modifier (#566) turns your switch into a momentary, latch, timer, intention or adjustable pressure switch.
