How to install a Smart Digital Timer GE
I have only two black wires and a ground. The switch has one white, 1 red,1black and 1 green.. How do I connect them.

Thank you for your help.

Most timers require a neutral to operate. What are you trying to control with the timer?

Just some out door lights. The switch is in the house.

Are you removing a switch that is currently there? Is this conduit coming into the box? It's unusual to have two black wires in the box unless this is individual conductors in conduit.

Thank you for your re; I found the rest of the wires in the back of the box.Installed it and works great.
