I have attempted to set and program two of these timers FIVE times!! They never go on!!! I'm a college grad with technology experience. Both of these cannot be bad. So frustrated. I have my receipt, but my electrician threw away the packaging. Can I still return them?

There is two parts to programming this timer. 1st is the setup( just entering the date, time, daylight savings time, and where you live reference the sun. These are known as CAL, CLOCK, DST, and ZONE. The 2nd part is the ON/OFF times to program. Most people only use P1 for everyday of the week with one on time and one Read More
Things to Know before you start. “ENTER" Button will be pushed after everything you do. There is two parts to programming this timer. 1st is the setup( just entering the date, time, daylight savings time, and where you live reference the sun. These are known as CAL, CLOCK, DST, and ZONE. The 2nd part is the ON/OFF times to program. Most people only use P1 for everyday of the week with one on time and one off time. Ignore P2,and the rest of the programs.
Use a tooth pick and press the reset button for four seconds or until “RESET “appears in the screen.
1. Push the SETUP button one time. CAL will appear, Push ENTER. Use + to get to 2016 and push ENTER. Use + to March(for example)push ENTER. Use + to the day, push ENTER.
2. CLOCK will appear. Push enter. Use - /+ to set the hour (PM?AM correct) push ENTER. +/- to set minutes. Push ENTER.
3. DST will appear. Push ENTER. It already says ON so push ENTER (unless you live in AZ then set to OFF)
4. ZONE will appear. Push ENTER. (depending on where you live) Choose Sout,Nort,or Cent. Push ENTER. Push ENTER 4 more times. ( this is for the dawn and dusk times) When SAVE appears push enter and you are done with the setup phase. YEAH!!!
5. Now, Push the setup button TWO times.
6. P1 will appear. Push ENTER three times. Dawn will appear. Use the + and go to Dusk. Push ENTER. PRO6 off will appear with all the days of the week. Push ENTER. Dawn will appear (if dawn is what you want for the off time push enter, if not push + to go to TIME and enter a time. Be sure to push enter after hour and minute. )
7. P2 will appear but we don’t carry about P2. Push the AUTO button (in the middle on the top) and you are done!!!!
Thing to play with. When in the First setup stage try pushing the + and – and scroll through the CAL, CLOCK, DST AND ZONE AND BACK TO CAL. This is how you get to the one part if it needs changing (like the clock). Now in the Programming the on/off times when it says P1 push the +and – and scroll through the programs. This is how we make sure no other program is overlapping. If you find an overlapping one push enter, then +(when it says SET) to DEL(delete) then push enter. Read Less

Answer: 
I'm an engineer and had trouble too. It was operator error. I was not pressing AUTO at the end of the programming cycle. Try the YouTube video. Search "Defiant timer programming". The on/off button should work even if not programmed. If not, it may be wired wrong.

Yes you can return them with your receipt.
You can download instructions from the website if you lost those for programming. Do not even try to call the help line, they are totally worthless (I tried).
This is a very plebeian program (given the price) and awkward at best to use, but it can be done. Most common error is you have it wired wrong in the back. Need to thoroughly check that out. I had to Read More

Bottom line, failure to program is almost always a wiring problem. Check to see if you have a 3way or 2way wiring. Make sure you have it wired correctly! Read Less

Answer: 
With the Defiant timer you can.
There is a Honeywell and Intermatic timer that look very similar but you can not use LED with them. The Defiant timer notes that you can use with all three types of bulbs on the lower left hand side of the packaging.

Answer: 
In this unit unlike the original wall timer units, has the battery built into the guts of the back housing and can not be replaced. I am sure they have done this so the unit needs to be replaced every 5-8 years. They use to have an access door in the front under the cover plate where the battery could be swapped out.

Since it is a new manufacture I am not sure. The old style(Intermatic) lasted 2 years +and had an access panel under front cover so it was easy to replace the battery, but this one (Defiant) stays lit all the time. I am sure it is pulling current off the grid but I do not know if that will affect battery life.

The battery does not appear to be accessible, no removable plates, in the new unit so when it goes bad it's time for a new switch if you have regular power outages. If you take apart you can see the battery but it does not pop out it is soldered for lack of a better word into place.

Answer: 
It is built in, you can't change it. It's most likely not even a serviceable battery - it probably uses a capacitor that builds up its charge while the line is live and discharges when it is off. It's really just to remember the programming, b/c if your power dies the thing this is controlling won't work either.

This timer can pretty much be used with all types of light bulbs - incandescent, LED, and fluorescent. Within the fluorescent category, I would include both low & high pressure sodium since they generate light in a similar manner, electrical discharge to illuminate a phosphor.

Answer: 
This unit can be used on both standard and LED which is why we purchased as most of our lighting has moved to the LED lights. The old style Intermatic switch(looked the same) could not handle the low voltage and the display screen would act up and flicker or go blank. This new unit does not have that issue.

I'm using it on LEDs just fine. It's a switch, not a dimmer. Those are more particular b/c they rapidly switch on and off, this is just a switch on a timer. I hear zero buzz - oh and the lights are outside.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 302 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Difficult to Program & Burnedout in less than 6-mos Easy to install with supplied instructions. Then........Tried to program the fountain to go on at 8 AM and off at 10 PM. Difficult to program a simple program. It wanted to vary times at different times of the year, which I did not want. Never did figure out if I had my desired program set. Buttons are microscopic without labels. Then.....After about 6-months the unit burned out - would not turn on pump (only 65 watts power) by the timer or with the manual controls. Waste of time to install it and then to remove it. August 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overall a good purchase When working, this is an indispensable timer. I have my front porch lights on it. The really neat thing about it is the auto-adjustment with DST. I actually bought this as a replacement to the last one, which froze up after a year. I'm hoping the last one was a fluke as I really like this timer. Just be prepared for spending some time programing it. August 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Can't handle thunderstorms A thunderstorm cam through a few nights ago. Power dropped out a few times. By morning three of the four units were toast. By toast, I mean I can't even manually turn on the lights. I've had these about 6 months total. I've had to reprogram two of them prior to this last storm. Programming is not straight forward. It's easy to inadvertently set up an extra program and mess up the light sequence. I would not recommend these units August 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Good I bought this timer to control an outside light. It was a little bit of a challenge to program but once that was done, no problems. It is adjusting the sunset and sunrise on-off time by itself according to a latitude range setting. You can program that feature or just set it for specific times. So far, so good. It is what I was looking for. August 30, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Has no Backup Battery to Hold Settings Programming is easy. HOWEVER, every time power is interrupted all settings will have to be reloaded. So, keep your programming instructions nearby. I would pay extra to have a backup battery feature. August 29, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by close the door and it resets to manual?? Confusing to program. Then when all set, I close the door and one of the bumps on the inside of the door touches the "MAN" switch and returns it to manual operation. In my case, this turned the light off. I reset everything and if I leave the door open, the unit seems to work OK. ??? August 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great so I wanted a switch that would turn on at DUSK (Sundown) and turn off at say 9pm or 10pm. This switch does that. You set the date and your area and it uses astronomy clock to determine when sunset is. You can +/- and fine tune for your area. Install was simple. But I wish it has "screw lugs" instead of "lead wires" as you end up having to use wire nuts to connect everything and most wall boxes aren't that big to add a bunch of wire nuts in the back. Note it includes about 4 wire nuts, but I had to use bigger ones as I had a box with 4 wires on it. So buy bigger ones as needed. Also you will need to connect the neutral wire to power the switch. (most switches the neutral isn't connected). I also like how this has a beige and white cover so you can matching your existing switch colors. as a note, it works well with LED bulbs. August 15, 2016
