If you have a home or commercial espresso machine without a built-in shot timer, the Luminaire Automatic Shot Timer is the easiest way to add this convenient feature without making a single modification to your espresso machine.


The secret to the Automatic Shot Timer’s simplicity is its magnetic sensor. When attached to a solenoid valve the sensor automatically detects the activation and deactivation of the group. Every time a shot cycle begins a signal is instantly received and a timer begins on the display. End your shot and the timer immediately stops. To install, affix the sensor to the solenoid with the included double sided tape, then attach the display to the front of the espresso machine with the built-in magnets. There is no on/off button or any manual operation required -- the timer is ready when you are. A single 2032 battery gives the unit a battery life between 4-7 years, depending on usage. The cord is extremely thin and the slack can often be run underneath the top cover of an espresso machine and hidden away inside. The cord can also easily be channeled through any of four holes on the back of the display so that it leads out from the top, left, or right of the display instead of the bottom, making your preferred placement look cleaner. The timer is only compatible with 120v and 220v group head solenoids. Before purchasing, please make sure your machine operates with a group head solenoid. Many classic E61 machines, for example, do not feature a group head solenoid and are incompatible. Some front panels on espresso machines are non-magnetic and the timer display may need to be fixed with some double sided tape.

Up your espresso game with the incredible convenience offered in the Luminaire Automatic Shot timer -- the easiest, most affordable way to add a shot timer to your home or commercial espresso machine.
