How to Program a Woods Outdoor Digital Timer

Having an outdoor digital timer gives you control over when your outdoor lights and appliances go on and off and you can set multiple on/off programs for different days of the week. Any type of outdoor lighting could use a timer. Whether it's your garden lights, lamp posts or the security flood light over your garage, outdoor digital timers help ensure you're never in the dark.

A Woods outdoor digital timer is a dual-outlet timer with a 2-foot cord, a grounded plug and a weatherproof housing designed to withstand exposure to the elements. This timer is designed to turn on and off outdoor equipment, such as landscape lighting, holiday displays, appliances and fountain pumps. It can also handle heavy-duty applications, such as switching on electric motors up to 1 horsepower. The Woods outdoor digital timer also features a digital liquid crystal display and can be programmed to actuate as many as seven on/off events daily.

Your Woods outdoor digital timer can be used for a variety of appliances and yard features. You can set the timer for pools and spas, water heaters, fountains and waterfall pumps, and even your sprinkler system. In addition, when the holidays roll around, outdoor timers are very useful devices to have.

Step 1: Access the On/Off Setting.

Press the PROG button once. This will automatically display the first On/Off setting.
