4Solution for Outdoor LightsApr 16, 2012
By Kelley
I've had this product (Honeywell RPLS531A 7-Day Programmable Timer Switch, Almond) for two months. It's used to control three outdoor lights, two on the garage and one at the front door entrance. I tried several different dusk to dawn devices but none of them worked very well. They all often came on whenever it rained or the sky was very cloudy, even when it was in the middle of the day. This product is a good solution. You set it to the time you want it to come on and when you want it to turn off. If you prefer, you can set different on/off times for each day. That's a good feature if you want avoid a fixed pattern. That feature is intended to confuse someone trying to find out when you are gone for awhile, perhaps on vacation. It does not adjust automatically for daylight saving time nor does it adjust as the sunset time changes. Thus, you must reset the start time as the daylight hours change.

The device has a small LCD screen which shows the time of day and is also used during programming. Programming is fairly easy and gives you the option to set all days the same, without having to set each day individually. One of my pre-purchase concerns was whether or not it would control the motion detector light fixture at the front door. Works perfectly. When the timer comes on, the two garage lights turn on and stay on until you reach the programmed turn off time. The motion controlled light stays off until motion is detected. If no motion is detected, it stays off.

You can override the programming to turn on the fixtures immediately by simply pressing the lower part of the timer. You can return to the automatic program by pressing it again.

The reason for knocking off one star is that the LCD window is hard to read because the digits are black on a very dark background. It has no backlighting so I sometimes have to use a flashlight to read it. I should add that the timer is located at the usual light-switch height in a hallway that is not particularly bright. However, even when the ceiling fixture in the hallway is on, the timer is still hard to read.

One last thing. The first timer had a defective display so I sent it back for an exchange. Amazon was more than helpful. They covered shipping both ways and the replacement arrived in a few days. I would buy this product again.

3Not very user friendly & who wrote the instruction manualFeb 19, 2012
By TW
I consider myself fairly handy around the house. Replacing a light switch is no issue to me; but when reading the instruction manual that came with this switch made me wonder about the "Note A - The white wire is not the neutral wire...", why didn't they just color the diagram in non-white color as that is the standard in most residential houses in the US. Also, the programming change requires to reset the switch, meaning you have re-enter the time for the clock and etc. Its just not very user friendly!. I would have rated this switch with 4 stars but its just not user friendly enough to program...

4Works OKNov 25, 2011
By Tom T
Installed to turn on and off a small heater. This item does not need a ground wire for installation. This product must have the load (heater, light, etc) left turned on to work. Directions are included for either single pole or 3 way switch operation. It does not have month, yr, etc so will not automatically switch for daylight savings time contrary to the description.
