Can someone else have a remote that could be turning them off and on in our neighborhood? Or do I have a faulty timer.

Answer: 
The lights can be on during the daytime because this particular timer does what it wants to do, not what you want it to do. I returned mine after only ten days for the same reason.

Answer: 
The sensor on the module has to see (be exposed to) daylight during the day in order for it to work. If the sensor is facing the ground or a wall, covered in snow, mud, leaves, or enclosed in a dark shed, the unit won't work correctly. Also, it might be 'confused' for the first 24 hours if it is plugged in (given power) after dark.

Answer: 
Hello lefty,
You need to turn the dial the 6 hr mark. At dusk the light will come on, and remain on for 6 hrs. Make sure the sensor has a clear read of the light levels and it should work fine. I hope this helps.
Cheers,
Chris

Answer: 
Hi Paul, this product does feature a 'weather-resistant design so that you can use it indoors or outdoors' however there is no other indication that the merchandise is "water-proof". This information is reflected in the product 'Overview' portion of the product page. Hopefully that helps! We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot!

This product is a great value for the price, simply because it works perfectly. The major positive is that it recognizes dusk and dawn. I have several lights that have dusk to dawn sensors that do not work well. They stay on too long after dawn or don't shut off at all on a cloudy day. This device has the same definition of dusk and dawn that I do. The shutoff timer works accurately too if you do not want the lights on all night I am going to replace a timer I have that must be adjust every few months for sunrise and sunset. This device works well enough that I am willing to trust it .

The timer is simple and easy to set; however many hours you want it to run after dark is what you set it to. I keep it plugged in under an eave so it never gets wet. I wish it had a GFCI and other plugs on it but for the price, it is a great timer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from OUTDOOR DOES NOT mean waterproof I bought 10 of these for architectural lighting on my building. After the first rain storm only 2 are now working out of the ten. After examining them, I found that they were so full of water. I had to shake them repeatedly to get the water out. Of course they don't work now. I have them hanging in front of fan trying to dry them out. Doubt very much they will ever work again. A shame since they worked great the first few nights without issues. They are not for outdoor unless you wrap them in plastic.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from conked out after 9 mo This has great features in terms of duration after dusk, but has no remote. I had to return mine to HD after 9 mo because the photocell became corroded, presumably from all the rain hitting it, and it would stay on all the time thinking it was dark. HD exchanged it for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money I bought almost half of dozen of these timers, some of them stop working a month after and others few weeks later. If I have a spare room to store all the packaging of the things I buy I will returning them but unfortunately I don't.
