Q:I?ve set my timer to be ON from dusk to dawn. When it?s dark out, the lights turn off for a few seconds every 15-20 minutes and turn back on again. This happens throughout the night. Is it just a defective piece that needs to be replaced?

Answer This Question

A:  It could be detecting the light from your device that just turned on. try isolating the timer so it is not near the light source

by|Dec 15, 2022

    A:  Regarding "when it is dark out, the lights turn off for a few seconds every 15-20 minutes and turn back on again", is a common occurrence affecting photo cells when they pick up a light source. In your situation, it is likely the same light source you're aiming to keep "On", from dusk to dawn, the light sensor is picking up, as "dawn". I see two choices you make: 1. set the timer to "8 hours" , or 2. change the positioning of your Intermatic 1000-Watt Outdoor Timer with Photocell Light Sensor, so that there is no direct light source to the front of it, where the sensor is located. Sometimes, this is also solved by putting a little "keep off, pesticide applied" sign, a few inches in front of the timer, to shade the timer from the light source causing the condition.Hope this helps.

      Q:Can this be used indoors?

      Answer This Question

      A:  If you are wanting something to turn lights on and off with inside, it would be better to get a power strip with an on/off switch. Using this would be difficult to plan. It would either be on when you didn’t want due to low light or you would be sitting in bright light when you didn’t to keep it on schedule.

        Answer This Question

        A:  When you plug it in set it on six hours and it will come on at dusk and shut off in six hours.

          A:  Once the device is turned “on” the photo cell is activated to turn lights on at dark. Tun dial to 6 hours and after lights are on for 6 hours then are automatically turned off.

            Short term solution
            This was a short term value solution for us that lasted almost 2 years. It worked well installed to control 30W worth of low voltage LED lighting on a pier, but the timer eventually began blowing a GFI breaker at the control panel. This is a decent timer, and easy to use, but I would not consider it a long term outdoor solution exposed to weather. The warranty on this product is 1 year.

              It snowed, it rained and then it snowed some more and some more. The blizzard winds were 25+ mph. But the Christmas lights on my very large bristlecone pine came on at dusk and went off at dawn from Thanksgiving through the 12 Days of Christmas thanks to this outdoor timer
