    GH, if you dont mind me asking, how do you use this timer with some lights in your condo?

    thanks!
    Simplest way is to plug your table or floor lamps to the timer. If some lamps are near to each other, you can use an extension cord to connect two or more lamps to a single timer.

    If you want to "timer" fixed lighting, you'll need to rewire those lights with an electric plug (and electric socket) at the electric breaker box. This is what we did for our office security lights.

    CFLs with photosensor simply means it would be lit the entire night. Great if you want to leave the light on all night but for those who want it turned on for a few hours a night, the timer solution would be better.

    ^^ Yung bang plug in lang sa outlet na energy saving device? I think its more of a capacitor than a real energy saving device.

    It is just a capacitor. Useful only if you have electric motor loads.... but who has low efficiency motor loads anymore (unless you own antique electric fans)? Useless product.
