Answer: 
As stated, this is a dual (2) outlet timer. The total rating is 15 amps - standard outlet rating. You could use an outdoor 3-way adapter for more outlets, being careful of water (snow) protection. None of these controls should be allowed to imerse in water.

Does this timer/sensor need to be "mounted" in order to hang properly?

This question is from 15 Amp Plug-In Dual-Outlet Light-Sensing Timer
Asked by

November 4, 2011
I had previously purchased a timer from another retailer that per the instructions, required "mounting" onto the side of the house or where ever placed so it could stay "upright" at all times. Is this standard for most timers? I don't want to mount anything onto my house, just simply plug it in.

Answer: 
I don't mount mine b/c I move them around when needed. The cord is short and stiff so it doesn't move a lot. Mounting it with a little screw creates more safety....to me, that's worth 30 seconds to use a screw.

Answer: 
Hello and thank you for your question.
According to manufacturer mounting is required for this timer to be safely used out of doors. It is also necessary as the product uses a photocell to detect light and is necessary for it to be kept with the front facing where light will be shining on it, or it may not work correctly.

If you're looking for a product that can be simply "staked" in to the ground i would recommend looking into our Yard Stake Timer, please refer to the related product section for more information.

Hi,
I have never used an outdoor timer before. Since this timer is bigger than the outlet box, the plug from the timer into the outlet will be protected but the plug into the timer will be hanging outside. Is this safe? Does it also need to be covered?

Answer: 
I have used outdoor cords and not had any issue. The outlet you are plugging this timer into should be enough above ground that this timer will likely not touch the ground either. This will really reduce any chance of water getting into it (as opposed to laying on the ground in a puddle).

The housing appears to be water resistant as I have used these outdoor in the rain. Just be careful not to have the control under or in standing water. It can hang down or I have put them up on a rock or outdoor wood piece.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by You get what you pay for Purchased to use with bug zapper. Turn on at dusk and off at dawn. Worked well for about a week, then it started to turn on even on cloudy day. Evidently the photo cell has problems. June 7, 2016
