The landscape transformers are Hampton Bay's lowest profile slim line power units which can be easily concealed after installation. These units are based on a potted toroidal core design that eliminates annoying buzzing sounds while offering the highest efficiency possible. Our Hampton Bay SL units meet the Department of Energy DOE mandatory requirement efficiency rating of VI. Utilizing state of the art sensing circuits, our transformers provide dual safety functions that detect and react to a system overload or a short circuit condition in a landscape installation. Hampton Bay power packs provide convenient features and flexibility to design simple or more elaborate landscape lighting designs. The transformer includes a photocell and digital timer, a ground shield making it safe for use with submersible lights. The units are equipped with dual voltage output terminals (12-Volt and 15-Volt) which help compensate for voltage drops in high-Wattage / longer wire runs as well as to help reduce cable loss when using 15V LED fixtures.

I purchased the recommended transformer and chose to use the manual on/off setting. Though the instructions seem clear, I found it very frustrating and never got it right. Maybe it’s just me though because my son did it with much less stress.

Really easy to install but I would recommend a longer power cable for outlets not near-by. I also recommend adding a built-in bluetooth option for the transformer or the lamps.

Nice Landscaping Upgrade
This is a nice landscaping upgrade. I've had this Hampton Bay Low-Voltage 120-Watt Landscape Transformer for about 3 weeks. It is currently powering 3 Hampton Bay 4.5-Watt Millennium Black Adjustable Light Color Outdoor Integrated LED Landscape Flood Lights. It is mounted to the Hampton Bay Transformer Bracket. So far the unit works good using the timer On/Off feature. I have the photocell connected as well, but have only used the feature once. Installation for me was simple. The unit is exposed to weather but hidden behind a bush underneath the soffit. The only issue I have is the the manufacturer requires a minimum 12" of clearance from the ground to the bottom of the unit. That is not possible using the Hampton Bay Transformer bracket. The solution was to mount the bracket to wood blocks to get the required height. An even nicer enhancement to this unit would be if it had WiFi operation capability.

    This landscape transformer is definitely an upgrade from the one we had before. Pros: It can be used for a 12 and/or 15 volt, and we like the digital display versus the old kind of selector switches. The biggest improvement though, is that the photocell (which recognizes daylight versus night) is not part of the base/power supply, so it provides flexibility in mounting... you can mount the control box out of sight, while having the photocell (which is tiny and unobtrusive) where it needs to be without the eyesore of the entire control box.The only somewhat negative, which is not a big deal, is that the mounting is just via hanging it on a couple of screws... it would have been nice to have a more "solid" mounting option. I'm sure it will be fine though. Overall, a very nice upgrade for our exterior landscaping controls!

    Hampton Bay Digital Transformer is a nice clean appealing size and style, super easy to install and set up 8.9 inches in height and 2.6 inches deep, maximum wattage is 120 watt weighing 5 pounds A excellent well thought of feature you really will appreciate is the built in surge protector protecting the transformer during power outages. The option to choose the number of hours for lights to brighten up your landscape can easily be programmed on the LED screen but with the attachable and replaceable, if needed photocell ables you to allow your attached lighting to automatically turn on as the sunsets and turn off as the sun rises. Template is providing for the distance of the 2 screws, hardware are included for mounting, recommended on wall 12 to 48 inches from the ground. Very specific instructions for installation as well as a quick reference guide to set the current time, choose manual and photocell . Hampton Bay has made the Transformer for landscaping lighting almost perfect, all that is missing is a attached stand to avoid having to mount on home.

    Hampton Bay's landscape transformers are low profile slim line power units which can be easily concealed after installation. The transformers provide dual safety functions that detect and react to a system overload or a short circuit condition in a landscape installation.

The units are equipped with dual voltage output terminals (12-Volt and 15-Volt) which help compensate for voltage drops in high-Wattage / longer wire runs as well as to help reduce cable loss when using 15V LED fixtures. If the photocell control is not to be used cover the connection hole with the provided dust cap. In the event of a power outage the transformer functions may need to be reset. This could be a problem since I live in Florida where we experience an abnormal amount of power outages. However, I found short outages lastly about fifteen minutes did not seem to affect the transformer’s functions (i.e. Clock).

    Hampton Bay Low-Voltage 120-Watt Landscape Transformer This landscape transformer is designed for 12 and 15 voltage led lights. The number of lights you can connect to it can be calculated by adding up the total watts of all the lights you want to connect to the transformer which should be less than the total wattage of the transformer. To figure out the wire gauge you will need, you add the total wattage of the lights and multiply that by the total number of feet needed to for the light. The back of the package explains what you need to do. This transformer has surge protection for your lights and you can choose to use a timer or what I use, which was the photodiode for it to sense when it was dark out, and then automatically turn off and on. You can also program it to shut off after a certain amount of time had passed once it gets dark out if you don’t want the lights to be on all night long. I like the compact size of this transformer and its easy to set it to work the way you want it to work. The installation guide shows you how to lay out your lights, wiring, and mounting of transformer.

    Hampton Bay 600 Watts Landscape lighting Transformer. Ordered this transformer to replace an older different brand that kept tripping the reset, This transformer is a lot quieter No more buzzing noise, Good idea is to measure the wattage of each light to see the usage and then decide what wattage transformer you will need, 600 watts is enough to to power all of my blockwall lights and (2) 110volt post lights with 12 watts candelabra lights bulbs all of the rest are LED landscaping lighting, I highly recommend if you have a longe run between your transformer and the lights to spend the money and get the 12 ga. low voltage wiring. if mounting indoors or outdoor use heavy duty anchors the transformer is heavy. comes with a light sensor, I use the built in timer

    This is a great low voltage transformer, we've been very happy with it so far. Installation was a breeze, plug it in, choose your start/stop type, screw in the photo sensor, and attach the low voltage leads. Mounting the unit was a breeze. The box includes a sticker that templates the mounting holes... just stick it to your wall and drill through the center of each spot and your holes will be perfectly aligned. The photo sensor is just screwed in the bottom and can be mounted anywhere you want within a few feet of the unit. When you power it up you toggle between on at dusk/off at dawn, on at dusk/off after a certain number of hours, and manual on/off. We're using this on on the side yard to shine about 7 spot lights on large trees around our property and it's been working wonderful.

    Well made with lots of options to control start/stop landscape lighting. It's very quiet, no buzzing, hissing or clicking. The biggest benefit for me is the 15 volt tap. Most transformers only provide a 12 volt tap, which is ok under normal use, but I want to run at least two hundred feet of twelve guage landscape wire along my back fence. I would have to do the voltage drop calculation for lights (watts) and length of cable, but I'll no doubt have to start with 15 volts to get 12 volts at the far end. For now, I simply swapped out my current old transformer with this one. It was simple connect the wires and set up the start/stop time although this gives the option of on with the photocell and off at a specific time.
