  • The AmerTac CL12LC 200W Indoor Programmable Light Control offers a measure of safety, security, and convenience by automatically turning your light on at dusk, and then off when you program it to (2, 5, 8 hours later or at dawn). It can simulate home occupancy to deter intruders. Or make sure you never come home to a dark house again - no more fumbling for the light when you first enter your home. Simply plug the control module into any standard wall outlet (near a source of natural light) and plug the desired lamp into the control module.

    A photocell tells the connected lamp when sunlight begins to wane and automatically turns on your light. Then, when the programmed time expires, the light will automatically turn off. You'll save money on electricity bills, since your light won't accidentally remain on during the day when it is not needed. And since the photocell works based on light detected, you won't have to manually make seasonal adjustments.

    The simple 1-touch programming includes a random on feature that gives your home a lived-in look when you are not there. Use with incandescent or compact fluorescent bulbs. This control module does NOT decrease bulb brightness as with other light control.

    Indeed, the room needs to be very bright for the timer to shut off. In other words, if the room gets just a teensy little dark, yes it gets cloudy here in the Pacific North West, the timer starts doing its thing.

    The user should be allowed to set the light sensitivity of the device.

    Useless as is.

    A piece of junk. I bought this at Ace Hardware and all it does is stay on forever no matter how you try and program it.

    They do not work at all as the least little bit of dimming tirns light on. Even near a bright window, they are useless. The room muct indeed be VERY bright to turn off the light. Utter junk and unusable--easte of money.
