I have come across a couple of new Digital Timer products that you guys might be interested in. Both are Astro/Solar type digital timers and both relatively new releases from leaders in the Timer segment. Aube has a new unit out and they have been my go-to astro/digi timer for some time. http://www.aubetech.com/products/produitsDetails.php?noProduit=82&noLangue=2 Intermatic has a new plug-in timer too. Vista has adopted this unit as an accessory for their transformer line. However, my experience with Intermatic plug in timers has not been all that good. I find they seeming chew through batteries for some reason, and often they have produced products that are not rated for deep freezing conditions. http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/consumer indoor timers/digital timers/dt620cl.aspx Have a great day.
