The robust backup battery and the seasonal dusk-to-dawn timer sell this product the best. It is fairly easy to program. It has a daily option to just have it come on at dusk and off at dawn. It automatically adjusts the on-off time to match the daylight savings time and the change of the seasons. Don't get stuck with another brand with a skimpy internal battery backup which dies in as little as 3 hours. The backup battery in this model is replaceable from the front and is a robust battery. It is also very easy to wire into place and makes no running noise at all (very quiet).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by blue99 What I wanted
I first bought a few timers with 4 wires to connect. My 60 year old home with the simple on off switch which controls a 60 watt porch lamp and they did not work. In the past a long time ago I just bought a 2 wire timer off the shelf and hooked it up. But now it seems like every one wants to sell wire timers.
Anyway I found this one 2 wires 1 hot (110 volts) 1 neutral made by Intermatic and it worked no problems.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ES Flexible Programming on/off events
Great flexible product in terms of being able to program just about any on/off timing you want. Dusk/Dawn to daily events based on daily "actual "sunrise and sunset times. Program it once and you're done, no need to adjust based on times of the year. One key point, this unit is based on on/off event programing which gives it's flexibility vs getting locked into defined event schedule. I did have to call customer support to help program since the instructions are not very good, however, they were great and very helpful.

This is a must have if something needs to be turned on and off. It was relatively easy to install. The programming instructions are vague so it is best to watch the UTube video on programming the timer. Once the programming is complete and you've set it to the auto astro, you never have to worry. It does click when turning on and off which is perfectly normal for the timer to do.

Turns the out outside lights on and off in a three way circuit. No other switch I could find could do that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by todd Dusk to dawn
This is a great switch for dusk to dawn, especially where a photo cell may not work as well. It is easy to install and suggest watching the online video for programming. Once you are done setting you basically have no more interaction with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by James Works Well, Has Battery Backup
Easy to install and fairly easy to program. Has a nice battery backup to hold programming during a power outage; the battery comes with the purchase and is easily replaceable. It is quiet and has a nice option when programming to select "ALL" days, so you don't have to program each day separately. The front door can be depressed to automatically turn on/off the light. Just set your time zone and latitude zone (South, for example) and the timer automatically turns on at dusk and off at dawn all throughout the year with no additional programming needed.
Other digital timers do not have a backup battery that lasts more than a few hours. This one's back up battery is replaceable and only draws battery power during a power outage and runs for a couple of days on the backup battery.. It is a very good choice for a digital timer. Remember to purchase your new double-wide face plate to accommodate your timer. I used smaller twist on wire tightener nuts than was supplied in order to save room in the wiring box.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SBear45 Exactly what I needed.
Worked very well for my not having a load wire in box. Programming was a little difficult as instructions have vvery small writing and following line by line was difficult going back from unit to instructions. Writing on unit buttons also very small. Once installed, timer works marvelously. Knows day of year and accounts for daylight saving time changes and knows time of dusk to turn on. Also, with battery operated clock, i power goes out, no need to reprogram. Very pleased with purchase.
