How to Program an Outdoor Light Timer?

Answer

Programming an outdoor lighting timer is a simple job. Anyone with basic electrical knowledge can perform this. Make sure before hand you cut the main circuit board. Locate the switch that controls your outdoor lighting and turn it on. Take off the switch plate with your screwdriver. If you have lights on more than one circuit, you will need to have multiple timers, and you will have to unscrew the other switches operating other chains of lights on those different circuits. Connect the new timer switch, which are usually color coded to make it easier. Set the timer to turn on and off at the desired times.

You can program an outdoor light timer according to the time of year. In the winter you might want it to go on at 5 pm and go off at 7 am.In the summer maybe 9pm and off at 5 am.
Because all are different, programming your light timer will depend on the make. If you do not have an owners manual, you can usually visit the manufacturers website and download one for free.
