Will the HB51R have to be placed outside to work on dusk to dawn.


The dawn to dusk feature is activated by photoelectric eye that senses when it gets dark.
If you put timer in a dark room, it will turn ON ... let's say to operate Christmas tree after you leave a room for the evening.
But if room stays dark, the timer will not sense when to turn off unless you also set timer to turn off 1-9 hours after ON.
That being said, a Christmas tree might make too much light for the timer's photoelectric eye.
Make sure photoelectric eye is turned away from direct light.

My timer comes on at dusk and the lights blink on and off until they shut off 6 hours later.


1) Put black tape over photoelectric eye on timer.
Photo-eye is small round eyeball that bulges out.
See of lights stay on.

2) Turn timer away from source of light so photoelectric eye does not pick up feedback from lights.

It sounds like photo eye is receiving enough light that it turns off, 'thinking' it's dawn.
And then when lights are off, photo eye 'thinks' it's dark again, so lights come back on.

Let me know if this is the answer, because it's Christmas season, and folks have been asking about blinking outdoor timers. And then you're en-route to become fixya expert and boost your GNP by 3 cents an answer.
