It may not be applicable to many people, but could seen as a Green feature. For example, tell an activity to stop after 3 hours if you don’t change the channel. Or turn off the tv and receiver if it is 1am and still running. Obviously some devices have this built in already, like a tv when it isn’t receiving a signal will turn off. But one cool feature could be timing Lutron lights to come on or turn off at a given time of the day.
