Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ceci Glad I made this purchase
I was hesitant to buy this product, because I was going to attempt to install it myself, but after watching several youtube videos about basic wiring, and googling terms such as line, load, and neutral, I decided to give it a try. I was successful on my first attempt. The only problem I encountered was that I had to change the order of the switches in the 2 gang box to make the timer fit. The programming was easy, as long as you follow the directions step by step. I am using it to turn my outdoor garage lights on at dusk, and turn them off at midnight. Because of information you input when you set up the program, the timer determines the proper time for dusk and dawn in your area as they change with the seasons. I also like that there is an on/off button, in case you need to override the program.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chandjo Easy Install / Cheap Quality
After an easy install, I pushed the face plate to switch the lights on and the minuscule pin holding the plate on broke. Functionality is one thing, but the timer without the face plate looks horrible.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joe From when Defiant became more expensive than GE?
This product is the exactly same one with the GE Sunsmart Switch. GE product is $9 cheaper than Defiant. From when Defiant became more expensive than GE? Installation was easy but you need enough space in the switch box. If not, it's difficult to fit it into the box. I had to replace the box from 3 gang to 4 gang box.
Pros: Work as expected. LCD backlight look beautiful.
Cons: Expensive(than GE). Too big to fit into a small box.
Neutral: Programming. Manual.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KenLR Just what I needed
Installed this timer today. After reading the instructions before I purchased this, and determined it would work, it took 20 minutes to install. It did take a little time to program, but the instructions are clear about this. Just read them! it worked as it said it would at the preset times. And I also have one happy wife.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OLDDIY65 Super product--Super service
I had been looking at timers as high as $127.00. I couldn't find an almond color to match the other switches. Checked at Home depot and found this Defiant model for under $25 and it had a face plate in white and one in almond. Got ready to install it and found my wall switch only had 2 leads: not 5 like the timer. I called customer service and was handed over to David who walked me thru the installation process. Then he later called me back and helped me program the timer. Can't say enough about Home Depot
