Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ira V-good value
I have a dusk to dawn security light on the shop which was coming on too early & remaining on too late, probably due to sensitivity & shading of nearby trees. Used this timer to control on & off times.
Found install instructions straight forward although I have strong electrical skills.
The issue I had was understanding the setting of the segments, usually one for on & one for off as well as the am/pm times in the gray area. Different than most timers. Nice product for the price.

I've purchased two of these at this point thinking the first one was just bad but now I have had a second one stop turning on and off at the desired times. The wiring is accurate but the rotation of the dial with the proper settings engaged only randomly turns the lights on and off. Buy a higher quality mechanical timer and avoid doing the job 2-3 times.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John17 Work's great, easy to install
I am not an electrician, however I found this switch easy to install and the plate cover that works with the unit. If you read the instructions you will have NO problems. I have had the switch several months and no problems unless their is a power outage and then I just reset the correct time. Easy and Simple.

Timer never worked correctly. Similar issue as many other reviewers - timer stops rotating after it hits the on period. Seems like a defective product, would recommend NOT buying this timer or from this brand.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SaleMotivator68 Nice timing device, easy to use.
Nice timer, a little complicated to install for a handyman, needed to have it installed by a professional electrician. i can't really comment on the quality yet since it's new, but for the low price I can't really complain.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ESBIII horrible to install
I installed the timer. Would not operate correctly because the trigger mechanism is too big for a standard outlet cover plate! Who designs a product that does not fit? I had to notch out the cover plate to get it to work. I finally got it to work, but will never buy this product line again. Home Depot should be ashamed to have their name on this product. There is a MINUTE arrow to set the current time. I needed a magnifying glass to find it.

This timer worked for a while, but then it started to jamb when it would reach the on times. I read other reviews with people having similar difficulties and re-checked the installation to make sure the wall plate wasn't binding with the timer dial. Everything was installed as instructed, and it seems like the internal mechanism that rotates the dial is simply too weak. We have a similar timer made by Woods in another room that has worked flawlessly for a few years, and this is the brand we used to replace this defective Defiant timer. The Woods timer is better and less expensive, but has to be ordered online.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hong45 It's good swich automatic ,
I bought this product after i read the reviews. i don't beleive them , Many people complain about the digital ones, therefore i decided to buy this mechanical. Installation was very easy, you connect neutral, line and the load. I unscrewed the rotating knob, took it off and installed the face plate without any problems, screwed the knob back on . I used it one month ago . its has turns my light on at nights without any problems. You can switch to OFF but there is no option to override the timer to ON other than setting all 24 hours to ON.
