This model does NOT have any Solar Timetable or Astronomical or Daylight Savings Time features, contrary to the amazon.ca description. It is a basic electronic timer, albeit with a good rating to switch motors and compact fluorescent loads. If you want Solar & Daylight Savings Time adjustment order Model RPLS740B. Note that these switches are white, as depicted in their photos. (The Almond versions are RPLS731B or RPLS741B, but these are not available on amazon.ca as of March 12, 2013.)

4.0 out of 5 stars A quite functional timer Feb. 18 2014
Verified Purchase
Despite the suggestion that this is a "solar timer", its a standard 7 day timer.
Timers which seem to be identical to this one, bear a number of different brand names - one of which I've had in operation for a number of years. They work well and are very reliable. The only drawback is in the number of programmes available. With seven on-off operations allowed, this can be restrictive if you're looking for multiple operations at different times for every day of the week. Also, be prepared to deal with the tiny 'keypad' when setting your timer up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Accurate timer Nov. 25 2013
By Sandy

This timer really works well for use on your front or back door porch lights.
Keeps fairly good time and is very easy to program. A plus as there some timers that require a degree in advance electronics to comprehend. This process is simple. You just need good eyesight because the timer is pretty small.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says Oct. 8 2011
By James Watson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This thing is really cool. I wanted something that I could use to put my porch light on a timer with a CFL bulb, and this works perfectly.

Some other available products (light sensors and other timers, including a Honeywell timer similar to this one) only work with incandescent bulbs, which defeats the purpose of putting lights on a timer to save energy. I could leave my 26-watt CFL (100w equivalent) on all day and still use less electricity than a 100-watt incandescent on an 8-hour timer.

With this model, you can program either a single on/off cycle to repeat every day, or up to 7 separate on/off cycles for each individual day of the week. I think you can also set an every-day cycle and combine it with 6 additional day-specific cycles if you choose. The cover for the programming buttons also functions as the manual on/off button, and using it does not interfere with your programs.

There is another model that works with CFLs -and- can be set to vary its on/off times to match your local daylight calendar (Honeywell Econoswitch RPLS740B 7-Day Solar Time Table Programmable Switch) but for the extra cost, I didn't need that feature.

I had some trouble figuring out that you have to slide a toggle under the button cover to "ON" before the switch itself will work AT ALL. I thought that was a bit confusing in the instructions, so now you'll know. Programming is not very difficult but it took me a few tries to figure it out. When you are finished programming, just close the cover and press it once (as if you're turning the light on) to exit programming mode.

To use this timer, you need to have a light switch where the power enters at the switch rather than at the light fixture. That's because the timer itself needs to have electricity constantly, in order to operate while the light is turned off. If your power enters at the light fixture instead, shutting off the light would also kill the power to the timer. Most houses are wired the correct way, which typically means at least 1 pair of black/white wires entering the switch box. If instead there is no white wire at the switch, only two black wires or a black and a red, you won't be able to use this timer.

As a side note, this switch has some sort of capacitor inside that saves your programs during power outages. It isn't a battery, so you would never need to replace it. It has worked fine through a couple of brief outages so far.

Edit: Lost power for over a week from some nasty storms this summer (July 2012), but the timer remembered all of my programs and the clock was still correct. Awesome!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Product Feb. 12 2012
By wil - Published on Amazon.com

As an electrical engineer, I say that this timer is good for what it was meant for. Installation is easy with the pre-existing wires, just twist the corresponding wires together and use wire nuts. There is no need to juggle with wires under the screws as with a light switch.
Set up was easy and I like the feature that lets you program all days of the week in a single operation, because this is what most people will use it for. It was installed on my backyard light and now I don't forget to turn it on or off either.
I took off one star for two reasons. First the display is not back lit and if you are not a teenager you will need a flash light to see the displayed information. Second it has no cover even though you can see one in the picture, but it came out to be a pictured cover on the package that fouled me. I ended up buying a GE rocker cover from Walmart at $0.57.
After buying this timer, I came across a different one on Amazon, it's a Stanley 30419 which at $17.95 is cheaper that the Honeywell, has a cover included and most importantly the LCD is back lit.

1.0 out of 5 stars Died after 10 months, warranty service stinks Dec 17 2011
By Jonathan A. Titus - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This switch looks good and works well (see added information below). Other reviews have commented on its operation. I would recommend it, too, but not until Honeywell includes a backlight or other illumination for the display. I installed the switch in a dark hallway and had to use a flashlight to see the display when I programmed it. I found the timer easy to program, though, and easy to install. Someone else noted you need three (3) wires--power (black), neutral (white), and connection to your lamps or lights (probably black). That's correct. To find out if you have the required wires, turn off power, take your old timer or switch out of its electrical box, and ensure you have these wires. DO NOT connect the neutral wire from the timer to the bare ground wire in the electrical box.

Addendum 17 October 2012: This timer worked well for about 10 months and then died. I went through hell to get the Honeywell warranty-service people (call center in south Asia) to respond to my requests for a new timer under warranty. All they wanted to tell me is what they could not do. After three calls, I talked with an Amazon person who called Honeywell and got things squared away. I still had to make a final call to the warranty phone number and email an image of my Amazon receipt. Honeywell's customer-service treats customers poorly and I will not buy another Honeywell product unless absolutely necessary.

I was surprised the warranty-service person did not ask me to return the dead timer. I thought the company's quality-control people might want to determine why it failed. Maybe they don't care.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a 3 way switch! Dec 7 2011
By Benjamin W Martens - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I have the 740B and it's incredible. This is the 730B and I bought it because Amazon lists it as a 3-way switch. The box clearly says that it is single pole only and the Honeywell site confirms this. The 500 series is the one that does 3-way. I'll be returning this one and getting a 500 series. I'm still giving this 5 stars though because they really are awesome switches!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Light Switch Timer Jan. 28 2012
By Justin McCall - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It was easy to install. Yes, you need the neutral wire, but you should have a neutral wire running through the box. Any device like this (that uses electricity) will require the neutral wire. You can turn the light on and off manually by pressing the switch. It's also easy to turn the auto control on and off (hold the button for three seconds).
