1) Buy a timer like the first one in Scuba Dave's post.How do I install a timer on my porch light for security purposes while we're on vacation?
My aube. Easy to program, and it's great not having to adjust the dawn/dusk settings every few weeks. I just wish there was a standard "white" between all of the manufacturers.That timer switch looks like an Aube astronomical unit. Click here for
ordering information. You program it with your latitude and longitude so it knows when the sun sets and switches on your lights. Same for sunrise. although you can program it to turn off your lights at midnight if you want.
And Bob, it will operate any kind of load, since it requires a neutral wire for its switching mechanism. Also, it does not need a battery, unlike the Intermatic units. :whistling2:
