From the Manufacturer
The Honeywell Econoswitch 7-day solar programmable wall switch can help save money by ensuring that your lights come on only when you need them. The sleek design mounts flush with standard decorative wall plate (not included). There are three operating modes: manual (conventional on and off switch), automatic, and random. There are up to 7 programs (7 on and off) per week. A program can apply to a single day or repeat every day. The connection is a single pole 3-wire (line, load, neutral 1800-watt maximum, 3/4-horsepower at 120-volt). For each day of the week, one is able to choose sunset and sunrise programming. It is simple to use - easy 3-button interface for easy operation and programming. There is a manual override, which enables load to be turned on/off without effecting programming. The programming is protected during power outages. This switch can also be used like a conventional on/off switch, is CFL and LED compatible, and no minimum wattage required. There is a random mode which turns lights on/off at random for added security when away from home. The large screen with with back-lit display is easy-to-read.

We have it installed to our 4 outdoor lights in the front to have them programmed to go on & off every day. The screen lights up blue when you are pressing the buttons on it (so you could program it in the dark), but there is a little blue light at the bottom right corner that will turn on to let you know that the lights connected to this unit are currently on in case you cannot view them from a window.
It looks sleek in the wall & you can get cheap wall plates/inserts from your local hardware store if you are connecting more that one set of lights like we had to do.
There is no minimum wattage required for the light source so we were able to use 4 LED lights outside in order to save cost on our electric bill.
Very happy with this purchase!

A couple of nice features:
* Easy installation for DIY -- Took about an hour to install. Instructions are well written and geared for safety. (Note: A white neutral wire is required to use this switch.)
* Simple to program -- Does not require a computer/smart phone to setup.
* Works with CFL and LED light bulbs.
* Multiple programming modes:
1) User specified schedule up to 7 days.
2) Automatic based on daily sunrise/sunset -- By specifying the latitude and longitude of your location, the timer can determine the correct time to turn on/off light for the current season. It is also able possible to advance/defer the default schedule.
* Backlit LCD with large clock.
* Uses a capacity in place of a battery during power outages.
(I was extremely happy with the product and brought another one a couple weeks later!)
I was so tired of having to adjust our timer constantly. Now, I have this set to turn on 10 minutes before sunset and turn off at midnight. And just for fun, on again at 6 AM and off at sunrise (which is uniquely useful for Canadian winters). Simple, logical, efficient, and until I got this timer, unachievable! AND, unlike the annoying old one that had 48 half-hour "on/off" periods, if I decide to just turn the light on, or off, it stays that way until the next meaningful point in the cycle instead of stupidly at the next half hour mark. The old one was constantly fighting me. Everything about this is smart, forgettable and perfect. Check the wiring requirements, but in a modern home they are not exceptional.
My only complaint is that I spent 20 years without it. 20 years! 20 years of timer torture endured, waiting for this switch. 20 frickin' years.
- Has a battery backup (for both clock and programming)
Strangely enough, there are timers out there that do not have battery backups. And until they invent the universal, everlasting, uninterrupted power (even solar power can be unreliable at times), a battery backup is a must-have for any timer. Especially for those of us who are prone to power-outages.
- Timer settings can be based on sunset/sunup
Depending on your needs, this may not be a requirement. But for front porch lights, you may well want a timer that understands sunset/sunup. I can set two programs (switch allows up to 7 programs by the way). One for the evening to come on at sundown and turn off at 11pm, and one for the morning at 6am and turn off at sundown. And the best news being, the morning program will only results in lights on when sunup is _after_ 6am. That is, "OFF" at sunup takes precedence, so in the summer months, the porch lights wont come on in the morning.
- The battery backup does take time to charge. When I first installed, I turned on circuit to test and then set the clock. Flipped circuit off to finish the install (safety first) and when I turned back on, clock needed to be reset again. This worried me, but I tested again a few days later... along with a total power failure as a second test. Time and program was retained through both.
- This is a three wire switch. Does require a neutral wire. I knew this, and knew what I was looking for, but I see other comments to the end, so wanted to confirm.
- Not all timer switches calculate sunup/sunset at the same time. I have two (front and back), and the previous one is the Aube version, predecessor to this Honeywell one (also much better btw). I found the two were about 8 minutes off. Annoying, but resolvable by adjusting the latitude setting. In my case, I moved the Aube switch (back porch) 10 degrees west so it would think sunset is later. Still a few seconds off, but close enough.
- It does have a random function (Aube does not), which allows you to set the timer to turn on/off "around" the programmed times. Personally not a feature I need/wanted, and so have not initiated it. But it is a feature.
