    As the subject states, any suggestions on programmable light timers for DIY LED setup?

    I am looking at the timer Improved Living sells but just curious as to which are generally used.

    BTW: Have also asked IMP LI PE to give me more information on their new 5 channel controller. Maybe that will also have a timer built in.

    No not that hectic. All I really want is to set the on and off times and be able to control two different channels. I don't have dimmable drivers at this point in time.

    can also buy normal circuit board electronic timers, they cost approx. R300 - R400, and can handle multiple cycles in a day full electronic. Also easy to install
