Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kaching Replacement for 20 yr. old timer
After a month of use, I love the astro feature! Here are a few things I learned. 1. It does not adjust daily. My astro feature changes about once a week in September. 2.The dawn and dusk times can be adjusted. Mine is set to go on about 15 minutes before dusk and go off 15 minutes after dawn. 3. It is difficult to hold a flashlight to see display, press buttons, and read directions or watch video all at the same time. Use a headlamp or get someone to help. 4.Compared to my old Intermatic Model SS7C, the click when it turns on is very noticeable. Overall, I am pleased with this timer. It is so convenient to set it and let the timer do the work.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by vw49 Works without neutral wire
The most important feature for me is that this timer does not require a neutral wire. Installation was not hard and it works well so far. Instructions on programming are not very detailed; if you make a mistake, it does not explain how to correct it and whether a total reset is required. Also the "random" mode is not explained in the instructions. Fortunately I was able to get answers quickly by calling Intermatic tech support. The display screen is small so not easy for me to read the settings. Astro feature is also nice and I hopefully it will adjust well as time shifts for the seasons. So far no problems.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by admiral great product
Overall product is great. A couple of minor issues, display is hard to read,need a flash light to read display at times. also instructions on setup of dusk to dawn feature,couldn't totally be figured out. Was able to set dusk, but had problems setup dawn. I had to set an actual time for patio light to go off. that worked fine.all and all product does what it's suppose to do, not having to manually turn light on and off is great. We'll see how the DST feature works when time change goes into affect, would definitely recommend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WhoCares Bought As Spares for 5 Year Old Units
The were bought as spares for my current units that have been in service for slightly over five years. They work well but there are things I wish were better handled. The instructions to program the units are poorly written as are the connection instructions. You need a flash light to view the screen as it has no light of its own. The seasonal change for daylight savings is random within maybe two weeks of the actual date. They "snap" loudly on and off. Each unit has a battery for no apparent reason, I mean ... they are in a live AC circuit. I think the battery is backup for power outages, but that's silly ... the power is out. When you pull the battery the screen stays active. Just a bit confusing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dana Works very well
After some bad luck with the Defiant timer, I bought this one. Made sure it was working and programmed before installing.
I didn't want the lights on from dusk until dawn, just a few hours in the morning and evening. This timer does that. Turns on about 5:30am and off at dawn. Turns on again at dusk and off around 10:00pm.
My only gripe is a minor one - when turning on or off, this unit makes a distinct click. It's about as loud as the piezo that lights my gas stove. At first, this was welcome because I knew the unit was working. It has gotten a little annoying.

Bought 4 of these for a new house. 9 months later, 1 failed. I suspect that the battery died which cannot be replaced.
They work well and would recommend them, just wish the warranty was better.

This works perfect for setting outdoor lights to come on at dusk and off at dawn automatically. Works well with LED lights so lights can be on all night.
