- Sturdy construction that should last a while.
- Easy and quick to program, pretty straight forward to understand without a manual (it does come with a manual)
- Remembers it's settings even in a power outage or disconnect.
- Easy to mount on a wall with a removable mounting plate that also acts a battery door.
- Great on/off button.
- Has a random timing function to vary when the lights turn on/off by +/- 30 min.
- Recessed plugs that dont allow you to insert plugs that have transformers/bricks attached to the prongs. (You could cut the plastic housing to overcome this with a Dremmel tool but dont try putting this outdoors as you'd risk shorting out the device when it gets water on it)
- No ability to setup different timing functions for plug 1 or plug 2, the timer either turns on or off both plugs at the same time.
- Short 2 ft cable.
After substantial digging on the Intermatic website and the wider Internet, I can't seem to find a functional difference between this model (Intermatic HB800RCL) and the very slightly more expensive Intermatic HB800RCH 15-AMP 7-Day Outdoor Digital Timer. Both are designed for outdoor use, can handle a resistive load of up to 15 amps, and have two receptacles; the only difference appears to be cosmetic, in the shape of the timers' plastic shell.
Do not be intimidated by reviews stating that this timer is too complicated to program! Out of the box, I had it running my lights on a fairly complex on/off schedule in less than ten minutes. While I am an engineer/scientist, all it took was the instruction pamphlet to set it up correctly.
1. It has an On/Off override.
2. It is easy to program - once you get the knack.
3. It allows programming for 8 events - typically 4 on and 4 off per event.
3. It seems to be well constructed.
1. The LCD display contrast is such that it's a bit hard to see unless the incident light is just right.
2. It is designed to be wall mounted and cannot be used as a desktop timer.
3. The power cord is short (about two feet) and for some situations would require an (3-prong) extension cord.
It has a the three prong plug on an extended cable which only
takes up one outlet allowing you full use of the second outlet.
It has two outlets to plug into and with 15 Amp capability I
have no problems with power. I found it very easy to program
and had it working in very little time. It can be wall mounted
allowing you full access to the controls and digital screen.
I also liked the green led that lights up showing you when
the unit is on, (powering the outlets).

Very difficult to program. Have several of the previous model model and it is really much better.Published 18 months ago by Ken
given as a gift. receiver loved it - actually asked for it for his birthday.Published 18 months ago by jask
ordered it & works exactly as described. The initial programming is cumbersome and if power is lost, you have to reprogram which again, is a pain. Otherwise this works well.Published 22 months ago by Mb

Before this outdoor timer, I used to adjust the on/off time a few times a year. But I was not pragmatic about the time change, so often the lights were on when I wanted them off... Read morePublished on May 19, 2014 by B. Tiplitz
this unit requires lots of patience to program. It is not very intuitive and requires lots of patience to set the times. Once it works it works great.Published on February 9, 2014 by C. BINZ
