Rated 5 out of 5 by Add security to your property. Turns lights on and off automatically. This switch is easy to install, but the instructions are very hard to read due to the size of the font. And when it is time to program the switch, it takes some patients. The instructions were revised since I bought this product before, and is a little easier to understand. Once you figure out what to do, it makes total sense. Very flexible programming on and off times. It can be programmed to turn on at a random time after sundown and turned off at a random time before the sun come up in the morning. Or you can program it to come on and shut off with the sun down and up times. Or you can program it to come on and shut off at a designated time daily. You can also program it for a different time every day of the week. Very flexible. They pack a lot of power into a small package. This is my second purchase of this product. I love it. Easier to install in a deep switch box. September 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does exactly what it says! I am a Grandmother and I do all of the DIY projects in our home. This was intended for our Coach Lights in front of the garage. The most time consuming was setting up the program on the display. There are numerous steps and modes, and I found myself calling Intermatic for some assistance. I found the representatives to be very patient and helpful. I used the stylus from my Smartphone because the padded buttons you need to push are quite small. The actual installation changing out the existing switch for this one took about 5 minutes, only because it's always a challenge getting all of the wires stuffed back in carefully. Everything seems to be working O.K. There are many settings and Modes, but I just stuck with the basic Dawn/Dusk feature. This was exactly what I was looking for! November 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to Use I use this product to turn my outside lights on and off at fixed times in the evenings. The device has more complicated programs also, if you want them. It is particularly easy to program because the manufacturer has a couple of You-Tube videos showing how to do the programming. It's easier than reading all the instructions. They also have photos on their website showing step by step, how to replace the batteries. September 21, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product did not function properly. I'm very disapointed in this switch, because I've programmed it four times and it still does not go on and off at sunset and sunrise. If I turn it on manually at dark, it only turns off at midnight, and doesn't come on again. This is the third switch I've purchased and I've never had any problems with programming the others. Can Home Depot provide me with another switch that programs properly? Thanks, Edmund McKee December 31, 2013
