    what a bunch of d$#che bags on this site. Celebrating a company going out of business, that's high class stuff

    I still don't have another option at a reasonable price. Who makes some other than Intermatic? Grasslin, I don't have any history with them . Are they good or astronomic? Sylvania has a Zip Set but not in a three prong configuration.

    Sylvania does have an external mount timer but I want to use the inner recepticle.

    Any advice? Thanks.

    Intermatic does have an internal unit ( Model: DT620CL) astro timer. Lowes has them for around $19.00. I have a couple dozen out with no issues. Also comes in an external unit.

    Thanks jshimmin.

    I am looking to find someone other than Intermatic since these won't be available much longer.

    Maybe it's time to start an Astro company and pick up the demands.

    Maybe one day they can raise the bar and change for dst.

    So tired of going out 2 times a year to hit one button.

    Plus the etc-400 is EXPENSIVE

    My understanding is that they are exiting the Malibu line. The timers Intermatic markets will still be available. They are use on a wide variety of products.

    I did have to do a service call on an Insteon system last week someone else installed for zone control. It's a pain and has been nothing but problems for them.
