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: 
Not 100% sure. I used it with led bulbs and it worked fine. I Used non dimable bulbs because I wanted maximum light in an outside area.

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.

I see no reason it could not control all lights. One issue, it is not a dimmer. It puts out full power or none at all.

Answer: 
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.

Go to the Home Depot website or that of the manufacture and watch the step by step video for programming this timer. It is easy to skip a step and if you do it will not set correctly. If you have a mobile device watch the video while standing next to the timer.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 297 reviewers.
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 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 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
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by In place, keeping fingers crossed after returning the poor comparable timer I purchased at Lowes, I purchased this one at HD. (thank God your app tells where it is in the store as your personnel are NO WHERE TO BE FOUND!). After figuring out my wiring, I hooked it up .......... correctly! the first time. I messed up programming so pressed the reset button and started over completing it (hopefully) correctly, we'll see! Other than hardly being able to see the darned screen, I think it's going to work beautifully with the "dusk to dawn" settings. I wish the directions would have said to repeat the on and off times (dusk / dawn) for all 7 days rather than having to figure that one out by myself. All in all, unless it fails, this appears to be a "good product". Now, if the LED screen was only a LOT brighter! August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great I'm sure it's simple for an electrician but for a novice the 3-way switch took a little bit of concentration. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product. The timer works great. I had a problem programming it but it was my error. August 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Programming Impossible This timer was relatively easy to install. However, programming was impossible. I am going to uninstall it and return to H.D. August 17, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works great, when it works. When they work, they work great, but quality is suspect. I bought three of them. Two running great for six months, the other recently would not turn off, even if I tried manually. Hit or miss I guess. I just bought their iPhone programmable one to replace this LCD version. So far the iPhone model was incredible. It is only 15amps though, but was SOOOOO Easy to program for simply or complex timings. I can easily say I will get the iPhone version every time now going forward. The draw back is you have to keep an iPhone for as long as you own your home if you want to program it ;-) July 9, 2016
