Rated 4 out of 5 by minisub Good choice for whole house window candle circuit
This unit has a dusk and dawn calculator by latitude zones. Coupled with the random function, it is great for our window candles as they come on "around" dusk for the time we use them as the days are mostly getting longer each day. The shut down time is also randomized, so it gives the appearance of a lived in structure whether you are there or not. Programming is tedious, but not difficult. Hope the battery lasts a good, long, time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lukeetal Most reliable timer on the market for small loads

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alfresco By far the best timer for our customers
We use these timers in landscape lighting installs and the result has been fantastic. There are about 10 of them that have been in for over a year and have been working without an incident in failure. We can not say enough about the quality of these timers.
Had a customer request that we use the GE timer that the home improvement stores sell, so I checked it out. The people on the floor at the store said that every one of the GE devices that they have sold has come back. Not a good track record.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pppeterson Great Product
I love this product. Its easy to install and with the daylight saving feature, once you get it programmed, you dont have to worry about when your lights are turning on and off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eagler Great alternative to light sensors
Looks good, works great, automatic dawn/dusk setting works great. Have installed in two different houses I have lived in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jackm Works Great, But Observe Max Wattage
The product performs as advertised, which is very good, but if you are even within 80% of the max wattage rating, you will find that you have to replace it pretty often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by impactbass Perfect when photocells are not an option
Excellent Intermatic quality timer with built in astronical time clock function. I use it for dusk to dawn operation but it can shut off or come on at any time required. Uses a CR3 lithium battery which seems to be holding up well. Has been installed for six months with no problems. Only downside is the sound of the relay makes a distinct click. You would not want this in your bedroom.
