    Hey guys I am usually on the irrigation forum but I am working on a project at my house and need some advise. I want to have to lights on the driveway pillars to be controlled by a photocell that has a timer so it will come on at dusk and then shut off in a set amount of time (several hours). But I need it to be line voltage or i guess i could use relays if a line voltage model is not available. Any ideas of what I could use?

    Check out Nightscaping Powercenters (transformers) that come with a modular control bay. You can combine a photocell with digital or analog timer that will give you the control options you are seeking. They have been unchanged and around for a long time, but with those modular control options, are still ahead of most of the competition.
