Weatherproof Outdoor Timer Power Strip is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outdoor Timed Powerstrip This item is fantastic! Especially for the Holidays with so many cords to plug in, plus with the timer you can set it and not have to worry about turning them all off. My husband loved it when I showed him what I bought him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Timer Directions hard to follow to setup the timer. Stated to push buttons that weren't on this item. Not sure how plastic covers will hold up over time. Would be nice to be able to remove the bottom spike as i hung this item from the side of my home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the holidays Just the thing for those multiple outdoor Christmas displays that do not need to stay lit all night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from outdoor timer power strip I purchased this item because it met the minimun for free shipping. I am sure it will be useful when Christmas comes around again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product/excellent service I purchased this product to "clean up" the use of multiple extension cords for outdoor Holiday lights. The quality is excellent. It is delivering power to the lights safely and efficiently--even during heavy autumn rains. I also am very satisfied with the responsive service from Improvements. Good show! Keep up the good work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes life easier My neighborhood is well known for its big Christmas lights display. Many lights mean multiple extension cords and need for multiple outlets. Not all outlets are in convenient places. This multi-outlet really helped. The timer eliminated the need to go out in the cold and wet to turn lights on/off. Not sure it's worth $24 but guess the convenience is worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outdoor multi-outlet timer is a good product I needed a multi-outlet timer for the outdoor holiday lights and this product fits the bill just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic product - use instructions from the internet I love these power stations. My last one lasted for 10 years at least. And this will too. The instructions that come with it are ridiculous. Telling me to push buttons that aren't even on the device! There are instructions available on the link on the web site - use those and save yourself some headache. Definitely would recommend because it's a life saver!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful Investment. I now own 5 of these timers and just use them at Christmas. It is wonderful to set them, have them come on when they are suppose to and go off when the time is set. Once in a while I have to recheck one that I don't have right but that is my own fault.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so far, so good --- worked well for my outdoor Xmas lights The price was a little high for a timer, but you do get 6 outlets. The instructions for programming the timer do not match up with the way the buttons read on the timer, but if you fiddle with it, you can figure it out. All in all, this was a good solution for my outdoor Xmas lights, so I would recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unable to get it to work We are older but used to technology. Neither my husband or I were able to get the timer to show all the options and so we didn't use it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for outdoor Christmas lights This devise can only be used for short periods of time, so it should not be used year-round for outdoor lights. I purchased this in order to have my outdoor Christmas lights come on automatically at dusk and shut off automatically at midnight. Serves the purpose and Works perfectly. There are several settings to select from. My weekend lights stay on later than my weekday lights & it's a pleasure to come home from work with the Christmas lights already on. The programming of the device was a bit time consuming for me at least & I consider myself relatively tech savvy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but difficult to program I like the this apparatus, however, programming it is quite difficult and the instructions seem to be written for something else, rather than this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Purchased 2 Timer Strips and only 1 made it to the 2nd season of use I purchased two of these 6 outlet timer strips to use for the 2015 Christmas season. It was difficult to program at first as the directions weren't good; however, once you figure it out, it is relatively easy. I loved that I could set the timer and the lights would turn on and off without me having to worry about them. The one downside is that when I went to use them in 2016 for the 2nd season of use, only one outlet worked. Very disappointed - this product is too expensive to be used for only one season.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from weatherproof timer outdoor power strip I was thrilled to find this strip for use outdoors with holiday decorations. Even though it was somewhat expensive, I felt it would be worth it to get such a powerful centralized. method of connectivity outside. However, I could not get it to program the on/off feature I was looking for. I had to do it manually.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Plug Unfortunately I could not time this correctly. I retuned it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from how does it work? The product came with the wrong instructions. Customer service quickly emailed the right instructions. However the product's six outlets are not labelled, nor do the instructions state which outlet is which, so programming took longer than it should have. So far it is working fine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Timed Delay Did not Work, Display hard to read. There is supposed to be a setting to shut the lights off any number of hours after dusk, simply doesn't work. Only dusk to dawn works on this setting. The timed settings work but the display is nearly impossible to read, very dim, must hold in just the right angle to be able to read. Return to Improvements is too expensive, might as well use it for what it is worth and when finally disgusted enough, throw it out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from limited life I did not see anything stating that the unit should not be used more than 90 days. Wanted to use the outdoor timer as a timer for a waterfall for approximately 4 to 5 hours each evening, April through October. Quess I'll get a timer hardwired.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can Only Be Used in GFCI Outlet I wanted to like this item, but I can't. First, it was somewhat difficult to program, mostly because the instructions are terribly written. I eventually figured it out. I plugged it in, and it blew immediately triggered a shut-down of several GFCI outlets in our home. Sending it back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Over complicated than it needs to be I liked the look of it and what it said it could do, but programming stinks. Instructions call out buttons on the timer but the names of the buttons are different and do not do what the instructions say. I sent it back after never getting it to work as it said and bought a different stake timer at Home Depot. Does the same thing, easy to program and half the price of this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Power failure The power center arrived with a dead battery and the digital timer component was rendered useless. (I still do not understand why an electrical device needs a battery for power). Anyway, the power center is now just a multi-outlet power strip .... the off switch does not even work. This product seems to be designed as a disposable device.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product did not perform as expected Although the product sent to me the first time did not work, I applaud the Improvements Catalog handling of a replacement. Since I use this for Christmas lighting, I have not had an opportunity to test the product over some longer term use. Again, many thanks to Improvements for making the initial adjustment.

Thank you for your question regarding the Weatherproof Outdoor Timer Power Strip. To set please slide the switch to “Photo Cell” 1. Push the “Mode” button once. You will see the words: On At Dusk, Off at Dawn. (This means the plugged-in device will be powered ON when it gets dark, and will shut OFF when the sun comes up). If you need additional help please contact a product specialist at 1-800-642-2112.

Individual outlet settings

Is it possible to set different timers for each of the 6 outlets, or does 1 timer setting operate all outlets the same? I would like to have my icicle lights on for 4 hours, but another light set for dusk to dawn.
Asked by: DebsInTN
Thank you for your question. The Weatherproof Outdoor Timer Power Strip features one timer setting that operated all 6 outlets at the same time.
