Rated 5 out of 5 by Best timer switch This timer switch is pretty incredible. It fits completely inside your wall (not like other bulky ones), has a lot of programability (7 programs, each can be up to 7 days). The best feature of all is that you enter your longitude/latitude location in the world, and it will know sunset and sunrise times as well as adjust the programs accordingly! It also does DST time change, and has a really cool "vacation" mode where it will randomize around your programs so that it looks more realistic that your are home. All in all, this is a small, easy to install, feature-packed timer. It's on the pricier end, but you really get what you pay for. November 8, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Replacement Timer Switch I purchased this digital switch to replace an older mechanical one. Delivery was quick; quality was good to very good. The only encountered problem was the instructions were translated poorly, and basically worthless. An on-line search for instructions was very helpful, and it was obvious many others had similar problems during the initial setup. September 17, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Read specs carefully I bought two of these but will have to return them because it is not compatible with CFL's and must have a minimum 40 watts. On a similar but cheaper model, it says specifically it works with "incandescent and halogen lighting (40 W minimum)." On this one, it says it works with "Incandescent, halogen and fluorescent lighting (compatible with electronic ballasts)" Once I received it, I saw it clearly marked on the packaging that it is 40W minimum and not compatible with CFL's. So no good for me. Difficult to rate when you don't take it out of the box, but I had to put something down, so 3 stars it is. July 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I needed. I ordered this for my front porch. No matter how I try to get home before dark, it never works so I had to find a solution since the outside lamp on a post refuses to work reliably. My switch is located by the front door and looped together with 3 other switches. I am a DIY kinda lady but I was determined to get this done. There were no instructions for the loop together application and it is not a 3 way switch so I took one of the black wires coming out of the new switch and wrapped it on the loop wire and taped it in place with electric tape. I turned on the power and came on and it took one minute to program. I later went with the preset dusk to 11 p.m settings and I manually turn it off I come in. Easy to understand instructions and easy installation and programming even for me - the do it yourselfer like me. March 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent timer This timer is a home run. It is simple to install (and I HATE working with electric), and simple to program. I set it to come on at sunset and go off at sunrise, and it could not have been simpler to set up. They provide you with simple easy to follow directions. Aside from being easy to install and set up it looks good as well installed. A plus too, that I did not realize, is that the display goes out when the light in the fixture goes dead. At first I was frustrated by this, thinking that the switch burned out, but that is because I didn't know about this feature (having not read the directions), which I have now come to like. A bit pricey, but worth the expense. April 3, 2012
