Does this auto adjust dusk times?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. That's what it says it does and that, in fact, IS what it does.

Will this timer work in place of one of the two switches in a 3-way circut?

Asked by: Superstar
The instructions says that it will work in a 3 way switch application. It has an additional blue wire (in addition to the usual black, white, and green ground wire) for the 3 way switches. You just cap off the unused blue wire if just doing a 2 way switch.

3-Way Sunsmart In-Wall Digital Timer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 209.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picked up in store with free shipping. Well packaged. What's not to like about a timer that fit... Picked up in store with free shipping. Well packaged. What's not to like about a timer that fits where your light switch was, (either 1 or 3-way), can set to custom times per day, 7 days a week, or can turn on and off with the sunrise and sunset. It even auto adjusts for daylight savings time. It's backlit and has battery back-up in case your power goes out. After reading the instructions it was easy to program. Installation instructions were also easy to follow. I've only had it about a week but it's working perfectly to control my front porch lights, (and a second one for my deck light). It's a GE product and was the least expensive of any, with the most features. It helps to have a multi-meter to determine line (black) vs load (blue).

The biggest difficulty was it was in a box with 4 other switches so getting all that wiring straight and having to pull all 4 switches out was time consuming but it all worked out. The switch itself is easy to use and works just as the description says. You can set it to come on and go off at specific times, random, or on at dusk and off at dawn. You set your zone and enter a rough idea of sunset to start the dusk to dawn part. I would recommend this and might even purchase another one..

This switch controls the lights, so they are always being controlled by the timer. If someone accidentally flips the switch at the other end of the three way, the timer responds and sets the lights to what they should be according to schedule e.g. if the lights are supposed to be on and someone flips the other switch to shut them off, the timer will turn them back on until the timing schedule says they are supposed to go off. Love that this has simple dawn/dusk programming that doesn't require a light sensor. Installation was challenging for me because I have a non-standard 3-way switch installation. I had to get advice from an electrician. Once he told me what wires to put where (I had to rewire both switches), it fired right up.

Wondered why this unit, a major brand name, was less expensive than other brands? All the features seemed. So I decided to give this GE unit a try. DIY installation...very straight forward...good instructions and fit easily in wall electrical box with other wires and switches in same group. User has to go thru initializing the unit and setup program on and off times, but again, follow well written instruction and it is easy to program.

After a dozen attempts to get this timer to work we finally gave up and returned it. It simply doesn't work. We had tried to use it on our outdoor garage lights. We ended up buying LED lights with light sensors built in. Less expensive and they work great!

I ordered this wall timer because it was about 1/2 the price of a similar but different brand than the one carried in the store. It works great & I am delighted. It wasn't urgent, so I had time to wait for it to ship; which was less than a week.

I think this is a solid timer for the price. The installation and the setting up of the timer events are pretty easy; after memorizing that pressing "setup" once for general setup, and twice for timer event setup. The only gripe I have for this particular product is that the text on the buttons are quite small for my aging eyes. The font in the instruction sheet is also really tiny, but I just download the PDF version and blow it up on the computer screen to get the info I need for installation/operation. I do recommend this timer; just remember that you'll need a neutral wire for this to work.

The installation, time/date setup and programming seemed pretty simple and straight forward. The only challenge I had was that the setup instructions did not describe how to switch between the Automatic and Manual modes as I did not want to always have the units running on Automatic - so that is definitely lacking in the instructions. (If you are looking to turn the programs off but not delete them then you will need to press the plus (+) and minus (-) buttons at the same time and release them when the screen changes from AUTO to MAN. This will keep the programs but the timer will not follow them.) In Manual mode just push the plate to toggle between On and Off. Note: I added a decal on my face-plate describing how to change from AUTO to MAN (see picture). Also some reviewers have had concern on the depth of the unit. It requires exactly 1.5 inches deep inside the box, not including the portion that projects into the room; more room is needed for the wiring connections. The LCD is lit with a lime green light - not blue as I've seen in some advertisements. Finally, it is quite dim and certainly does not light up the room at night or produce any kind of glare in a dark room.
