Answer: 
Absolutely. That's exactly how I have the timer functioning. You can turn it on at either a preset time or dusk, and you can have it turn off at a certain timer or at dawn. It is very flexible as to when you can set it to come on and off.

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Avoid if looking for an occ sensor I wanted a cheaper solution than Lutron's LRF2-OCRB-P-WH and Lutron MRF2-6ANS-WH, to satisfy the following specification: -Required: Wireless, battery operated sensor Single pole light switch that takes signal from the wireless sensor Switches on when sensing motion Switches off when does not sense motion for an X amount of time -Optional: Disregard motion and turning on if enough ambient light present Unfortunately this unit works much better when programmed to turn on/off at pre-programmed times, than an as occupancy/vacancy sensor. I followed the manufacturer's installation and programming instructions, but for some reason it does not sense the motion well enough to turn on, neither does it effectively count-down to time off (light stays on). I hope that these flaws are not due to mis-programming or other user error, otherwise this might be more difficult to program than a VCR. In the instructions, the manual mentions that the motion sensor, while in Auto mode (its normal mode) "...works only at night. When motion is detected, this motion triggers timer to turn on for the programmed countdown time you set on the timer." What's vague about this statement is what considered to be "night." Is it the time after the "dusk" and before "dawn" times? If so, my occ sensor is useless during day time, even if the space is underlit. It does not appear that the sensor has an ambient light sensor. My recommendation to Defiant is to keep things simple - get rid of time zones, day light savings, programmable on/off schedules - only keep the wireless PIR that's sensitive and adjustable, also add an ambient light sensor too. The industry is moving away from time clocks - Defiant should too. March 15, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sensor does not work. "Failed." Paired the switch and sensor one time. Then it stopped working and even when I hold the sensor three feet away from the switch paring indicates "failed." Good name for this product. Why does HD sell stuff that the customers say does not work. It just makes one not want to buy there. June 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Security Light Installation was simple along with the programming. Units paired right up and the sensor follows the programming commands. The problem is there no sensitivity adjustment as on other motion sensors. That being said the light comes on every 10 or 15 minutes at night even when there is nothing there. It does shut off at the prescribed time. April 27, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sensor won't pair with switch The sensor clearly notices movement. The timer works. However I can't get them to pair with each other, they just say FAIL. I tried this from varying distances with the same results. I tried pulling out the batteries and putting in new ones. No joy. Ditto toggling the switch from a to t. Returning to store tomorrow. Too bad, its just what I needed (well don't need the timer, just a remote motion detector to control a light switch). March 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Nice Timer This timer and motion detector combo product is nice. I get the functionality of a motion detector after the timer turns my outdoor light off. Now I don't have to choose between either a timer or a motion detector. I don't want my outdoor lights on at 3 AM, but would like to have motion detection then. Worth every penny. January 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Ultimate Timer Love the motion detector feature on this timer. Rather than keeping my outdoor lights on late at night, I can rely on the motion detector. Eco-friendly. Easy to pair the motion detector to the timer. The mounting bracket for the motion detector makes it so easy to use. Great way of using your outdoor lights. October 18, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pairing Problem I agree with ElectrEngineer. Same problems, but mine might be related to pairing. Although sensor is only 15' from switch, pairing is lost within a few hours/days and must be reinitialized before sensor communications will work. This is with new batteries. My next step is to install sensor about four feet from switch and three feet above light. September 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keeping the existing outdoor light fixture Found this by accident at Home Depot while shopping for some security lighting fixtures. This product saves me from having to buy a new motion activated wall-mounted outdoor light on my porch. It didn't take me long to install it. I also like the separate external 180 deg.sensing range motion sensor, which I am going to install it near the front door to also cover the driveway. I am not sure how long the batteries will last in the remote motion sensor but not a big issue for me. I am concern with mounting the motion sensor outside as it does get cold out here in Denver during some cold winter days. Too bad this one doesn't come with a version for three-way switch, which would be good for my exterior garage lights. Hope the manufacturer will come out with a three-way version with exterior motion sensor. March 1, 2014
