Device for scheduling the duration of use of any electrical apparatus. It consists of a programmable counter/clock interposed between the operating switch 1 and the apparatus 2, which computes a duration of use and/or a number of throws of the switch, preventing the supplying of the apparatus by the latter when a limit preset in the program is reached. The counter/clock comprises a circuit for detecting the request for operation by the user 11, a processing unit 3 incorporating a clock 8, a system 10 for entering settings, a supply allowing backup 12 and a system for validating the request for operation 13. The device according to the invention is particularly intended in the utilisation of a television receiver. <IMAGE>
