Default Alternative timer for MistKing

Does anyone know of a trustworthy alternative timer for a MistKing system? I was somewhat frustrated with the one that came with the system and it recently broke, so Iíve just been running the MistKing manually.

I use this one from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/MIYAKO-Progra...gateway&sr=8-6

It works well and it goes down to seconds! I don't know what the big deal is, Mistking makes a fuss about hardware store timers only going down to minutes but it really isn't very hard to find one that goes down to seconds.

Thank you! MistKing was out of stock and it was 80 freaking dollars on amazon. Just ordered one.

I use an amazon echo and a normal plug timer, they only go by minutes but IME that's preferred. Once you go with these smart timers you wont ever go back, Alexa turn on the misters.

Greetings,

The timer TincTank suggested seems perfectly good but this is the timer I use:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It also supports on/off intervals in seconds but it support more individual settings per day (19) that the timer Tinc suggested (and more than the mistking seconds timer too).
