I purchased this item after reading the negative reviews, so I was prepared for the worst. The reason I bought it was that it was the only device of it's kind (after lots of searching) that worked with CFL lightbulbs. I bought two of these for the lights in front of my building and it works fine with the timer turned on (for 8 hours). The CFL bulbs I'm using shine at their normal brightness. Out of curiosity I tried it in the default dusk-till-dawn mode, and like other reviewers noted, the light control has trouble knowing when to turn off. One of the lights did turn off on it's own, but only because the sun was shining directly on it. The other light stayed on all day. Another thing to mention is that when you flip the light switch off then on, or have a power outage, the light control resets back to the default mode. So if you leave it in a timed mode and notice one day that the light stays on, double-check that the timer wasn't reset. I've had these two light controls for a few months in 8 hour mode and they work great. I also bought a plastic cover that goes over the light switch so no one accidentally switches the light off and it works great. 12 each: Ace Switch Guard (3017746)

I really liked the specs of this item and bought two from Home Depot (several variations of the same can be found in Fred Meyer and other stores).

As couple of others have pointed out, it doesn't turn off at dawn in the dusk-to-dawn mode, as advertised I did some experiments indoors and it turns out that while it can turn on correctly in low light conditions, the logic is faulty in detecting ambient light while the light is ON - perhaps it is a difficult problem. I contacted the Company via email and they confirm it will not work if the outside is cloudy - which is most of the time in the Seattle area.

I tried to use it in the 8 hour mode recently, but even that seems to be faulty - it works for about a week, and again does not turn off after 8 hours.

I hope the company can fix this annoying bug.

I installed this product with a 60 watt incandescent light bulb facing upwards in an ordinary floor lamp.

The product seemed to be working ok as far as timer functionality but after approximately two hours of operation I could smell an odor of something burning. I turned off the lamp and noticed that the receptacle was blackened at one of two solder joints on the bottom of this product.

Unfortunately, I am past the 30 day return date.

The quality of the solder joints on the bottom of this unit look "cold" and defective....I will hesitate to ever purchase another product from Westek or Amertac in the future.

Like all the other reviewers, I took a chance that they had resolved this issue but they haven't. I sent them an email saying it won't shut off at dawn. They replied that the photo eye has to point towards the area where the sun shines and also that it won't work with frosted glass. I have frosted glass on my outside lights so intended to replace them with clear glass so I took the frosted panels out so there was nothing in front of the photo eye and made sure the eye was facing towards the light of day and they still would not turn off. The only way to reset them is to turn the power off to them and then back on and then they stay out until it gets dark again. Kind of defeats the purpose of having photo eye control, doesn't it. Since I have returned these I found one that does work and will accept CFL's. Go to Touchandglow.com and search for model S-751MG. They come in a pack of one or pack of two. The only catch is you have to have clear glass on your lights, not frosted. They work like a champ, I just ordered another one.

Environmentally minded as you are you search high and low for one of these timers that is CF-bulb compatible. And then you come across this one: it looks sleek and simple, has basic features, is not too expensive. Finally you've found what you want! But then there are all the negative reviews: "doesn't work," "disappointed," "wont shut off." But you just wanna believe that you're different, that it is gonna work for you. And with high hopes you buy one, and install it, and moments later find yourself shaking your head and writing a review just like this one. This is my story. Don't waste your time with this.

I placed the item on all of my porch lights (4). They turn off and on every few seconds all night long. I tried partially covering the sensor hole, but still didn't work. I completely covered the sensor hole with black electrical type, and it still continued to blink. The sensors I received just don't work correctly. When I get some time, I plan on fashioning a metal cap with a pinhole aperture to limit light to the sensor.

This product was a total waste of money. I had a problem that seems to be common: the unit would never shut off. I wanted something for a cfl, and this was the only thing I could find. I ended up throwing this thing away because it is literally totally useless, and I installed a wire-in photo cell that was cheaper and worked like a charm.

This light control was actually suggested to me by someone at our local big chain hardware store. I installed them without any problems and waited till night fall. It came on when it got dark and I was very pleased, but then it started going out and coming back on. Changed the hoods as was suggested in the directions but still no help. I started looking online for help in solving this problem which brought me to Amazon. Mr. Hanlon's suggestion of putting black electrical tape around the hood and actually extending the length of the hood really helped. The light stayed on and the next morning, the light went out. Thanks Mr. Hanlon!!!
