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.

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.

Answer: 
I just relocated this timer from my garage to my front door. It was disconnected on a Saturday and re-connected on a Monday. When I hooked it back up at the new location all my settings were still there, as well as the correct time from the first time I set it. So I would have to say at least 2 days, probably a few more.

Answer: 
Actually, after asking the question, I spoke with Home Depot tech support and was on the phone with them for quite a while. The answer they gave me was that the switch would retain memory for up to one hour ("at the most"). My two switches had to be reprogrammed after a 1.5 hour power failure. I ended up replacing the switches with Honeywell switches which I ordered through Home Depot online.

Answer: 
I would agree with the other post that other timers I've used have been backed-up for several days. However, I installed one of these on a rental property in May and the power was out in late August for about 5-6 hours and it lost the program. Frustrating to have to reprogram it. Defiant should specify this time. Better yet, improve upon it!

Answer: 
The packaging and written materials provided with the timer do not contain this information. However, based on my experience with analog programmable timers containing a built-in battery, the timer should retain the program for at least 7 days; when the remnants of Hurricane Ike came thru the Miami Valley, I lost power for 10 days and the analog timers retained the program the entire time of the outage.

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).

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

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 281 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 31, 2016

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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 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. May 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 May 11, 2016
