Will the EJ500 fit into a single gang (single switch) box / How tight will it be? The width seems to be 1/16 inch less than the width of a standard one gang box. Is there a timer that is narrower that I should consider? Note: I need a timer that does not require neutral wires.
Asked by: HomeOwner1
Yes, I was able to install the EJ500 into a single gang metal box - no problems.

CAPACIY OF EJ 500

WILL THIS CONTROL 8 OUTDOOR FLOOD LIGHTS?
Asked by: BERNIE
In order to answer your question, I would need to know the total wattage of the 8 lights. If the total wattage is less than 1500 watts, then yes it will do the job. If your total wattage is more than 1500 watts, consider changing some of the out to LED lights to get the wattage down and then it will work.

Is the 4 amp timer unit (EJ500) suitable for installation on a 15 amp household lighting circuit?

Asked by: Smac
Yes, as long as the total wattage on the timer is less than 1500 watts. If it isn't, then consider changing a few bulbs out to LED lights to get the wattage down.

4-Amp In-Wall Astro Digital Timer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Something you need to know The timer was easy to install. I used it to control out some out-door lights. However, there was a problem. When the timer was off, one of my outdoor lights flickered. It took a $90 visit from electrician to discover that this timer does NOT work with the CFL light bulbs I had. When we changed the bulbs to incandescent everything worked fine. So I think there should be a big warning to tell people just what type of light you can use with this device.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from JUNK Horrible device. Display is nearly impossible to read (I had to try using a magnifying glass). Programming is convoluted to the extreme. The computation for Sunset is very general which caused me to have to 'game the system' by mis-setting the actual time to get the lights to come on before dark. Once set, it worked well for a number of years, however, when I wanted to change the programming, it failed to respond to commands, would not reset to factory settings. I bought a replacement unit made by a well respected electronics manufacturer and have been delighted, it is everything this piece of junk was not: easy to program, back lit, easy to read with normal reading glasses, has a precise computation for sunrise/set based on your Latitude and Longitude.

Pore outages do not effect the settings. The installation is fairly easy, but the initial programming was time consuming. It would be much better to have instructions for a quick initial set=up. This devise has many set up options that require extensive programing. I just use the dawn to dusk option for my front and rear porch lights.

Great for two wire switch - don't have to jerry rig anything - UL approved so Insurance Companies like that. Easy to put in, more options than I ever expected. Nothing special to do.
