Holiday Light Timer with Light Sensor

We put up the Halloween lights over the weekend and I was reflecting that these timers really help make it an easy and no fuss set up.

It turns everything on at sundown and stays on as many hours as you specify. You can also just leave in on dusk to dawn or simply on or off for debugging.

It’s really nice enjoy your own lights if you come home after dark plus I feel better about using the energy since I minimize it by only having on for a few hours each night.

It dropped into my old-school TiVo, xBox, and PC running XBMC environment surprisingly easily.

Our new Honda came with an Aux In that works well with our sundry iPods. Pretty cool but there’s no way to charge it up and connecting to the Line Out from the iPod would definitely be an improvement.

Happily this creature exists!
