Like many of the previous reviewers of this product, I experienced much frustration in attempting to program this timer to work with a Volt Transformer. I followed the instructions and attempted to program the timer three times without success. What I subsequently discovered by using a process of elimination, and what is not discussed in the instructions to either the timer or the transformer, is that the timer cannot control the on/off cycle of the transformer unless the transformer is switched to the "on" position. My previous attempts to program the timer may well have been successful, but the timer could not function as intended without the transformer's on-off lever being in the "on" position. I hope that this will prevent others from experiencing my frustration in trying to use this timer, which currently is operating as advertised.

I ordered lights, a transformer, and this timer a couple of weeks ago. Installation went smoothly, and even though the instructions on the timer were a bit confusing, they weren't impossible to figure out. Worked smoothly for a few days but now, the timer just flat out does not work. It is supposed to keep working while unplugged - it doesn't. Bought new batteries with no luck. Reset the whole thing and started over, again no luck. I will be contacting the company to see about a replacement which I am sure they will do. They have been very nice and helpful. It's just this particular timer stinks. The lights and transformer are wonderful. Very pleased with the quality and performance - when the timer lets them come on!

Incomprehensible; Expensive

Comments about Intermatic Astronomic Digital Timer:

I wanted a simple on-off timer and I bought this, not realizing it was for 20+ programs. I had 3 different people try to set it for me, unsuccessfully, one having called the Volt people for help. Eventually, the 1st guy came back and we figured out why it wasn't going off till 12 hours later. VERY VERY COMPLICATED, SO DON'T GET IT UNLESS YOU NEED MANY MANY DIFFERENT SETTINGS.

Comments about Intermatic Astronomic Digital Timer:

Once one determines how to program this time, it is an incredible appliance. It worked so well with my Volt lighting, that I purchased 6 more to control Christmas lights in different parts of the house. This is an amazing timer, and much easier to program than other astrological timers. Just print the directions from Intermatic's web site.

Lots of choices. High quality product however the instructions were not all clear in all of the steps to make this unit totally functioning. More clarity to steps would be nice.

Comments about Intermatic Astronomic Digital Timer:

Replaced the original timer I bought from Volt this one was a little tricky to setup but the video was excellent guiding you through the process. The customer service I received was outstanding. I have had the timer for about 2 weeks and so far everything is doing well.

Great timer, horrible programming instructions

By

Comments about Intermatic Astronomic Digital Timer:

I purchased two of these timers from a third party (not Volt) due to pricing. Fits nicely into Volt transformers. This timer works great once you get it programmed. I have mine come on at dusk and off at 10 pm. You can pick a different program for each day of the week if desired. Has a battery to retain program during power failures. Just ensure you have no distractions when programming as the instructions are lousy! You Tube has a helpful tutorial for programming.

Great for the Job

By

Comments about Intermatic Astronomic Digital Timer:

This timer is the ideal size/shape for the low voltage transformers. I've got them in both 150w and 300w boxes. Programming is just like any digital control device. There are plenty of options to choose from, and you'll have a learning curve. I just watched the video and got the jist. Once you get the hang of the user interface, you'll be fine (took me about 5 minutes the first time). Watch the setup video, then follow the directions and the on-screen prompts. I definitely recommend this timer.

Comments about Intermatic Astronomic Digital Timer:

This timer does not come with any directions and has many options within it. All I needed was a start and stop time. I set it to come on at 5:30 pm and go off at 6:30 am and the lights are shutting off at 12am for some reason?

Astronomic timer

By

Comments about Intermatic Astronomic Digital Timer:

Somewhat complex to get the initial set-up in place. Reading directions CAREFULLY is the key, as usual. Every scenario can be programmed if desired or the most simple on-off cycle. Works like a dream. Better than a photo cell. Start time tracks dusk time within your specific time zone.

Comments about Intermatic Astronomic Digital Timer:

This times is really neat. Although it took a little while to program (primarily because my big fingers kept hitting the wrong button), the time appears to function as advertised. I really like the programing flexibility built into the unit.

The only other time I have had experience with was the kichler timer. I switched over to this one because i always had issues with the dusk to dawn option on the kichler one. Ever since I switched over I could not be any more happy!

Comments about Intermatic Astronomic Digital Timer:

Very high-quality material and workmanship in Volt products. I am very impressed with this company; when I called support for clarification on an item, the customer support staff answered promptly without the usual layer of phone menu options and spent 10 minutes discussing my questions. Volt ships their products in high quality shipping boxes with detail to assuring no damage is incurred . My order was shipped promptly and everything was in order.
I plan on using this company going forward for all my exterior lighting jobs.
Best Regards,
Bob

Comments about Intermatic Astronomic Digital Timer:

Very nice to program and then leave alone. Don't have to keep adjusting as the days get shorter or longer! This is my favorite part since I was always having to adjust my manual timers all year.
