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

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bo 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.

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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ron 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!

I'm sure it's simple for an electrician but for a novice the 3-way switch took a little bit of concentration.

The timer works great. I had a problem programming it but it was my error.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 38 Programming Impossible
This timer was relatively easy to install. However, programming was impossible. I am going to uninstall it and return to H.D.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ocafra 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 ;-)
