    The program allows for any time on and off. I use it that way in my living room and change the programming when I leave town on my weekly gun buying trip.

      We have the EJ351, plenty left in stock, not at the crazy prices either. $28.99, not $100.00 like ebay.

      Not good for LEDs!

        I don't know of any line voltage powered 2-wire timers that are good for LED or CFL. These devices get the 120V to operate the timer through the circuit, so they're essentially leaking a small amount of current through the load, which is in this case the bulb filament. If you take the bulb out, the timer will stop. And it may not run reliably or at all with an LED or CFL. I seem to recall some digital timers in years past that got around this by using batteries, but they were a pain in the butt to program.

        Are you sure there isn't a neutral available inside that box? Because if you have one, that will make things a LOT better.

          Plenty of boxes don't. The older the house, the more likely the switch is a single stand-alone device in the box, and wiring to a switch leg was just faster and cheaper.
          Post 1950's houses have more multiple device boxes and more reason to need a neutral in the box.
