Essential Info

All it takes is a few minutes to add a programmable timer to your fluorescent or incandescent lights. Screw this timer into any indoor or outdoor lamp and you'll be able to schedule your light to turn off after 2, 5, or 8 hours. Or you can choose to automatically turn your lights on at dusk and off at dawn, so you can be assured that your lights won't remain on during the daytime. A contact plunger allows you to adjust the photocell as needed for the most direct contact with sunlight.

A random off timer can also change the settings every night to confuse possible intruders. In the event of a power outage, the timer automatically defaults to turn the light on at dusk and off at dawn, so you can be assured that your lights will continue to turn on and off without instant reprogramming.

I use these sensors for my outdoor lights. I originally bought these from Lowes and they work great, but SmartHome had them cheaper. I set the timers for a few hours at dusk and they work excellent with both CFL and LED bulbs. Saves usage by turning off after a few hours and allows security by having lights on at random times. Perfect for what I needed.

So far so good.

I've gone thru 2 of these. They don't last very long. I wish it would.

Website easy to navigate. Product arrived ahead of schedule.

The product worked as advertised, but the problem we had was, being electronic, if the switch that controlled the lights was turned off, or a power outage occurred, the socket would need to be reprogramed. Which meant removing from outdoor fixture, reprogramming and reinstalling and then taping over the switches insided with notes saying don't turn off. Also if one of your lights was in a more shaded area, it would turn on before the others. I'd stick to timer switch inside house.

CAUTION CAUTION CAUTION. If this unit is put in any enclosure that does not have COPIOUS VENTILATION, the heat will destroy this unit within two hours and it will no longer function, even when it cools down. DON'T BUY THIS UNIT IF YOU ARE INTENDING TO PUT IT IN A POORLY-VENTILATED ENCLOSURE, I.E., outside light fixture. It's too bad it was not designed to withstand high heat!
