    Mount the Aube Solar Timer Switch 40-500W onto a standard single or multi-gang electrical box. The timer may be used for a single pole, an existing 3-way switch or a new 3-way switch installation. Program your city's longitude and latitude based on the included guide, and the Aube Solar Timer Switch 40-500W will make sure your lights are on when you get home after dark.

    Almost a year and a half of operation, and it's still kicking. It's just that the time seems to get off by a few minutes every few months or so. It seems to be a bit fast, about 3 minutes now, and the last time I synced it was maybe 4 months ago. It also sucks this model doesn't seem to adjust for daylight savings. So this is why I give it a 3 out of 5. The drifting of the clock is just unacceptable, forcing me to readjust the time every 6 months or so. Microwaves have better time keep than this. But all in all it works great, got it to turn my porch lights on at sunset and off at sunrise. Bought an upgraded model for work, that's supposed to adjust its self for daylight savings, but that one loses time sync too. :

    I love this thing! I don't have to worry about remembering to turn off my outside lights when I leave and I will always have light when I come home late.
    BRETT -- seattle, WA   9/7/2010
    works as expected. a little painful to program with the small buttons. make sure you pay attention to wattage - especially if you plan to use CFL bulbs.
    LESLIE C -- jonesboro, GA   8/6/2010
    I bought two of these switches, programmed them for dust to dawn, using the co-ordinations in the manunal and installed them. They are working very good. No problems with them. Used a 40 watts bulb, or the total wattage is not lest than 40 watts. The maximum watts is 500 watt. Great devise for two wire connections without the white wire return line, like other switches I have seen for CFL bulbs.

    Great little timer controller. It works as advertised. Installation was straight forward for my application. Programming the desired schedule was a little confusing and took a couple of tries but once you get the hang of it -- no big deal.
    MICHAEL -- wilmette, IL   7/19/2010
    Great timer. Easy to install. Programming is a little challenging, but once done and understood, this is a much better product than my old Intermatic.
    JEFF -- morrisville, NC   7/11/2010
    Easy to install. Once I got it set-up, I haven't had to touch it again.
    DENNIS -- newnan, GA   6/21/2010
    This is a very intelligent little switch and it's doing what it's advertised to do. The only minor complain is one I've read before: it comes on about 1/2 hour before dusk. I've adjusted present TOD to compensate and it's working fine now. D. Robertson
    CRUGER -- dallas, TX   5/20/2010
    It works very well, but I couldn't understand from the instructiion, how to make the lights come on earlier. Should I chang the timer to +1 or move it to -1.
    ALFONSO -- chicago, IL   5/7/2010
    Great product at a very good price.
    GARY -- leesburg, VA   4/26/2010
    Met all expectations.
    Gary -- Virginia   4/25/2010
    Great switch. We originally purchased this product so when we were out of town the front porch & outside garage lights would go on & off automatically. Easy to install and works awesome.
    ED -- westerville, OH   4/22/2010
    The timer switch is working fine. It's the second one I've had and is very reliable! Ed Fanning

    DAVID -- macomb, MI   4/1/2010
    I had the other style timer (set On/0ff times)but had to keep adjusting it throughout the year as days got longer/shorter...this allows me to set it once for my home area and not have to worry about making seasonal adjustments...highly recommend this product to control outdoor lighting!!!
    ROBERT -- crossville, TN   3/29/2010
    Just what I wanted
    JAMES -- sharpsburg, GA   3/24/2010
    Works as advertised - easy to program
    KARL E. -- york, PA   3/4/2010
    Works fine! Help from the factory was lacking when I tried to get info to program "on" signal for about 30 minutes before sunset to compensate for "dark" location of lights. I finally figured out how to cheat the switch timer.
    PHU-MY -- kleinburg, ON   2/19/2010
    After blowing out all the fuses in our house, my husband was able to get it to work. Only allows for 500W but we need 800W for all our outdoor lights so will be purchasing a 2nd one so we don't blow out all the power again.
