auto kilns/vs switches

i have all my electric kilns with switches.
don't have auto/program.

i use my kilns for bisque only.

if i left an auto kiln overnight...i would
program for no more than 500F. then re/program in the morning.
and, i would get up once and check it.

putting two switches on low would not
be a problem for anyone.
the kiln would just sit there for days on end.
never get above 700F.
bill's advice is taken, and respected.
