I was looking for a timer that would turn my outdoor lights on automatically since I go to bed before it gets dark. I've never replaced any of my switches before but the electrician (Chibuzor) was very helpful and walked me through the whole process of installing the timers. Very easy to install thanks to Chibuzor expert advice. Timers work perfectly, I really like the daylight saving feature on this model, it adjust the time automatically which saves me the hassle of changing the time every week. The timers were easy to program. Only had them installed about a week now but I haven't had any problem with them so far.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by woofjac In-wall digital timer
The product is well-designed with easy setup features. However, the installation instructions could be more in-depth with possible situations. Fortunately, the Customer Help line provided me with an immediate technician who explained how to circumvent my difficulty...very impressive service. I was replacing an older digital/mechanical timer which only required 2 wires to function. This new In-wall timer had 4 wires which included the ground. He explained that the third white wire must be buried in the box. Sure enough after taking out the other switches to access the entire box, a set of white wires were taped together along with some extra drywall mud. Once I was able to get to these wires, connect the new timer switch, I had a great product. The timer works great with a nice large display and illumination.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Trainwreck Replaced old manual two wired timer with this digital timer
I just recently installed this timer switch as a replacement for an analog timer that broke. The only real concern was that this new digital timer had five (5) wires (blue, black, red, white and green) and the previous one had two (2) black wires.
After speaking to a couple of electricians and reviewed the wiring I was able to install the switch here is the wiring I used for the new timer: (The instructions basically had the same layout for a single pole switch)
* Black - terminated to the bunch of black lines that were tided together
* Blue - terminated it to the other black line that ran to the lights (I think)
* Green - terminated it to the copper ground wire
* White - connected it to the bunch of white neutral that were tied together
* Red - capped it did not need to use it
It was tight to the get the everything back into the box the number of additional wires and the box itself for the timer is a little big so space will be at a premium.
The setup of the timer was pretty straight forward just follow the directions. The manual button worked fine and timer executed just as expected. Make sure you sync up your zone where you live.
*** Oh do not forget to buy a new face plate to support the new switch...I had to run out and get one after installation. ***
Best wishes to all.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Patrick139 Pretty easy installation
Let me start off by saying electrical work is not my strong point. Lol
That being said I found this pretty easy to setup. my current configuration actually had a 2 black wires and the white neutral was wound up with a wire nut with other white neutral wires. it'd take me a little bit to figure out that the black on the new switch goes to 1 of the black wires and the blue on the new switch goes to 1 of the black wires.
Once I got it figured out everything setup just fine. Programming the switch was easy as following the directions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HandyHaitian Great Working Product!
I was lucky to have a neighbor who is an electrician install for me. However, I could have done myself as given instructions were provided clearly. I was able to program easily a Mon - Sunday schedule by following the instructions.

My electrician recommended this product for setting timer on my landscape lights. It's a little complicated to program, but it works great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dwhit Just what I was looking for!
I have been using this timer for a little more than a week, and so far, I think it is a fantastic product. I have it controlling my front porch CFL-bulbed light. I had to use some guesswork on the installation, (2 of the wires provided weren't used) but then, I don't like to read directions, and the ones provided had very small print, almost too small for my 68-year old eyes. I did have to try a couple times to get the switch into the wall and share the space in a 4x4 box with an existing plain 3-way switch. Programming was involved, but not difficult. Once installed, I think it looks pretty classy and modern. I'm going to get a second one for the back porch.
