Hello,

I found a strange configuration in an old house.
It's a kind of DIY to light a staircase during a given time, unexpectedly using an on delay relay and another relay.

See the "diagram" (yes it's ugly!) in attachment that I tried to draw, according to my understanding.
(can't remember if the push buttons are on live or neutral)

What do you think about this DIY ?
Is my "diagram" OK ? Can it work ? (perhaps I missed something)
Is it unsafe ? Why ?

I'm not in this house to change the staircase timer but perhaps it could be a good thing to replace this strange system if it is dangerous (I need strong arguments).

Thanks !

Regards,

Peter.
