The UPM-DT523 is designed to reduce the amount of time lights are used after dark. For example, even if your lights are programmed to switch on at 6pm but if the sun does not set until 7pm, the timer will not go on until 7pm. If you prefer the lights are activated at 6pm regardless of lighting, you can program your timer so that they do come on.


Important Note:
If timer is being used outdoors, it shoul be mounted at least three feet above the ground (with the receptacle plug facing down) to avoid a shock hazard.

    Comments about UPM Outdoor Programmable Timer with Photocell:

    Nice looking, but system loses all settings when there is a power outage and you must start all over. Not very functional. Sent it back. and re program the entire program
