Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by swhitefox Very SMART purchase!!!
I purchased 3 of these. Two of them I use to power on and off my external wall outlets for holiday lighting. The third is used for my front porch lighting. During the holidays I will set the external outlet timers to turn on at dusk and shut off at midnight. During this same time, I set my front porch light timer to turn on at midnight and shut off at dawn. There are a number of ways to program these to fit your needs. Instructions are very easy to read and follow. I am a DIYer and electrical is not my strong suit. If I figured it out, anyone can. You simply can't beat the price when compared to similar timer switches.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CaptSacto Great automatic timer for outside or inside lighting
Other than the body of the switch being large and a little difficult to push into my three unit switch box because of the extra wiring in it, installation was pretty straight forward. The package comes with everything you will need to install the switch. This is the second one I have installed and if you follow the instructions, which can be a little confusing if your a real novice, they work perfectly. I like the idea that you have many different choices in the setup, like random times on/off, Dawn/Dusk and it changes with Daylight Savings.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shelley Instructions difficult
The buttons on this light panel are too small for my in-laws to read. I have tried to get the automatic timer set up when I am at their house, but following the instructions requires a little trial and error, so several months later their light is still not working the way they want.
The instructions make reference to the times you want the 'timer' to turn on and off. However, it is not made clear how the timer relates to when the LIGHTS are on and off. Clarity could be improved.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rich Works well
Other than the size of the buttons I felt this timer/programable switch works well. I read some say they could not figure out how to program it, I had little trouble. That's not saying the instruction couldn't be improved upon.

Battery backup only lasts for up to 8 hours, after that all the programming is lost and you'll need to reprogram. Honeywell has better power backup.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy Just what I was looking for
Saw this on a home improvement show and knew that it was what I was looking for. Home Depot did a great job of delivering it quickly. The product itself was great and does just what I wanted it to do. The installation instructions (not available on the website) were a little misleading for wiring into a 3-way, but after a couple of tries, it all works now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BlueBell16 Excellent 3-Way timer
Installation is easy if you know what are you doing; programming is easy once you read the instructions or see the video online; it worked great with the option to set it up to turn off at sunset and on at dawn or manual timer with override as well. Also it kept the setting after the power was off for an hour or so.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by captjack best value for a astro timer
I had originally got the Defiant model for about $24 in the store and then found this GE online. Same functionality but only about $16. had them in for a few weeks and very happy. Not too hard to install or program, given you have the space in the box It helps to know the sunrise and sunset time for the day your installing as you can plug these in to make it super accurate. About the same size as a GFI. It comes with wire nuts and 2 color plates, white and tan.
