LED compatibility requires neutral wire for operation. To be precise, this light switch timer functions on a 120 Volt line wire, load wire, one neutral from line side and one from the load side joined together with a wire nut. Once these components are connected with the timer, the Honeywell RPLS740B1008/U will have LED compatibility. It's also important to note that the wattage of the LED bulb should not exceed 1800 Watts.

Save money on your energy bills with the Honeywell 7-Day Solar Time Table Programmable Switch for Lights and Motors. With its three different operating modes, you can customize your system to best suit your lighting needs. The automatic mode turns lights on at sunset and off at sunrise using the solar timetable or you can choose fixed hours to avoid having the lights on all night, while the manual setting lets you use it as a conventional switch. For extra security, the random mode works by turning lights on and off inside the house while you're on vacation. This simulates an active household, discouraging potential break-ins and giving you peace of mind while you're away.
Includes Seven Customizable Programs
The 7-Day Solar Time Table flexible programming allows you to create up to seven programs per week. A single program can apply to one day or the entire week. Whether you want living room lights off during the day, or patio lights on after sunset, Honeywell provides you with numerous customizable options for incandescent, halogen, and fluorescent lighting systems.
A handy manual override allows you to turn the light on or off without affecting the current program. For added convenience, this switch also automatically adjusts for daylight saving time so you don't have to worry about reprogramming.
Activate Lights with Solar Timetable Function
When you enter your home's latitude and longitude, the Solar Time Table switch calculates the sunrise and sunset times for each day of the year. The program automatically turns your lights on and off with the daylight, so you always have light when it's most useful. The switch also gives you the option of adjusting lights up to an hour before actual sunrise or sunset, ideal for places where trees block the majority of natural light.
Slim Design and Simple Installation
Thanks to its compact design, the Solar Time Table Programmable Switch adds a sleek and subtle touch to your room. It measures a slim 2-7/10 by 1-7/10 by 1-7/10 inches (H x W x D) for a flush fit in any standard decorative wallplate. The intuitive three-button interface makes it simple to create your programming schedule, providing a wide screen and backlight for easy viewing day or night. An LED offers you quick confirmation of its on/off status. Its large backlit screen comes with the option to stay lit up on low intensity as a nightlight and turns on its high intensity when you press either of the buttons. It installs easily with its line, neutral and load wire connection.

Hopefully this will save you some time.
This switch requires three wires. The "Line" or Hot wire (usually black), the "Load" usually blue/red and Neutral (usually white). My old switch that controls porch light only had two wires installed, Line (Black) and Load (Red), but I found the Neutral (White) wire tucked behind. After connecting the Line and Load wires, the switch did not power on. So I reversed the Line and Load wires and it works.
Programming is straight forward. I like the fact that I can have my porch light turn on at sunset and off at sunrise based on actual time of sunset which you enter latitude/longitude of your location. Basically set it and forget ti.
Uploaded photo of old switch and new switch.
Loving the look and the fact I don't have to remember to turn on/off my exterior lights. Loving how the lights will be on when/if I come home late at night.
1. Compatible with compact fluorescent bulbs (this timer even works with electric motors).
2. Has the option of turning on or off at either a certain time or at dawn or dusk. It keeps track of the time of year so that it knows when dawn and dusk are.
3. Adjusts for daylight saving time automatically (although it may eventually be a few days off if they change the dates for daylight saving time again).
4. Keeps its programming and the correct time and date during power outages.
5. Has no batteries to wear out (more about this below).
These features let me set it up once and then leave it alone. Of course, it's easy to override it if needed. Just press the main button to turn the lights on or off. The timer will stay programmed and resume automatic operation when it is time to turn on or off automatically again.
Some of the literature on this product says that it has a backup battery to keep the programming set up and the clock running during power outages. At first, I was concerned that the timer might need to be replaced when the backup battery wears out. Even a rechargeable battery only lasts so long. I carefully opened the unit to see if the battery is user-replaceable. I was pleasantly surprised to see that instead of a battery, it has a 0.22-Farad super-capacitor. A super-capacitor substitutes for a battery, but for all practical purposes, doesn't wear out. I wish more electronic devices would use these.
As with any product that has a mountain of features, it takes a little time to read the instructions and set up the timer. However, the menu system is pretty logical, and was easy to catch onto once I had programmed a few settings. I don't even need the instructions now.
Since the timer has been installed for only a week, I can't really be sure about reliability yet. It appears to be well built, inside and out. So far, it works flawlessly and the time is staying accurate.
It is a little expensive, but it's the lowest-priced timer I could find that has the features I want and has good reviews about working reliably. Also, with the super-capacitor instead of a battery, there's no need to worry about battery replacement.
The timer came via Amazon Super-saver Shipping, and arrived ahead of schedule in just a few days.
Get a multimeter and check the voltage. Turn off the power from the circuit breaker. You need to identify the proper neutral in the box. Should be 3 or more white wires twisted together with a wire nut. Load goes to conductor labeled 120v on 0v off. The other two wires are a power in and out. Remove them from the switch, restrip them, and twist them together with a pair of lineman pliers. The line wire goes that. There should be a wire or screw for the ground. Please make sure all connections are mechanically sound and proper wirenuts are used.
The timer is also going to be bigger than the switch so you have to make sure and fold your wires in neat.
PS. this should be a minimum service charge type of thing if you call an electrician.
