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.

SunSmart 8 Amp In-Wall Digital Timer is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great! Overall, this product does what I need it to do -- turn on when motion is detected and turn on at the push of a button without having to rewire from the outside of the house to the inside. The greatest part of this system is that you do not have to run a wire from the motion sensor to a power source/light switch. The switch and motion sensor are easy to use and install. At first, the timer function was complicated because I didn't realize how it really functioned. I did figure it out after a few days of realizing the light was on when I didn't want it on, but I now opt to not use the timer function and strictly use the the motion sensor. After about six months of use, it still works great, and I haven't needed to change the battery in the sensory yet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BEWARE This is a Home Depot proprietary product, but after more than an hour trying to program the timer feature to work with the remote sensor and being frustrated over several nights by unexpected "lights off" outside my front door, then half an hour on hold with customer support I learned that: 1. Contrary to the indication on the product packaging the timer feature does NOT work with the sensor feature. In other words, it works only as a sensor OR as a timer but NOT BOTH. I will be returning this product for failing to properly describe the product function. 2. The product is WAY overpriced for the function it performs. If you are curious, ask someone at HD how this product works and my guess is that they too will expect that the switch allows BOTH timer and sensor features to overlap BUT THEY DON'T!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seems To Have It's Senior Moments I've had it installed about three years. Works great until winter when the temperature falls below 30 degrees or so. Then it cycles on/off whenever it feels like it. I set it for the minimum on time and it's really nothing that deters me from using it. Make sure to save the instructions if you ever want to change anything or if you're like me you'll have a senior moment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does it's job just fine My goal was simple, or so I thought. I wanted to turn my outside lights on at dusk and off again either at dawn or at 12am depending on the light. I have 5 switches that needed to be automatically controlled. To that end, I tried various options over the years including an X10 system and an Insteon system with complex controllers, timers, and even web interfaces. None of that stuff ever worked reliably for me. I finally decided to bag it all and use these simple timer switches instead. Success! In the end these simple inexpensive timers did exactly what the other, more expensive, complex home automation systems were supposed to do which is simply turn the darn lights on and off. :) I love the fact that a) They work perfectly b) Daylight savings and dawn / dusk settings get set automatically (saves me from running around the house twice a year reprogramming) and c) The settings supposedly stick through a power outage. Things I don't like as much: a) The switch is a bit big and I had trouble stuffing it into some of the gang boxes b) Programming seems to be more complex that it should be. The buttons are small, the screen is hard to read, and the instructions long winded and confusing. If you hit the wrong button you're often sunk and need to start over. Thankfully it only has to be done once. All in all, I am very happy with these devices. I think they could be improved, but in the end they do work and perform their job nicely where other more expensive devices did not. Finally, I noticed another reviewer say something about the timer taking 24 hours to recover and return to 'auto' mode once you manually switch the lights on or off. I did not see this issue, so perhaps I have a newer version where this has been fixed? I am able to manually turn the lights on or off whenever I need to and the schedule does not get interrupted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
