Garage,Patio and Porch lights on same switch- HELP!!
This seems to be an easy thing to do, but I want to be sure that I am doing this correctly. I would like to turn on and off the lights in the patio; garage and front porch from the same switch and at the same time install on the same switch a Honeywell RPLS540A ECONOSwitch Programmable Timer Switch to automate the sunset and sunrise lighting. I have attached a jpeg and would appreciate if someone can provide me with some advice...thanks in advance
You want three switch zones, one for each group of lights, also a master switch that overrides the zones and turns on all the lights.
This is quite complex. You need a "three pole" or "three circuit" timer switch unit, or purchase three timer switches, or have a system of relays so one timer switch can turn on the three zones without connecting the zones to each other that turns it all into one zone.
Tornado victims: Do not rush to rebuild. Take your time and look for and get a good contractor. Or consider selling the property and moving to a home that is ready to live in.
