I have not been happy with any timer I have had to date to run the lights for the coop. I give the girls 13.5 hours per day of light to keep some of them laying. For now I get up before they do and turn the lights on manually. Here is what I am looking for in timer, is it made? 1) Battery backup so it does not loose its settings during power failures.(I may also want external backup to run the lights for a while, I can get there with a UPS) 2) Programmable to follow the sunset and turn the lights on in the AM hours, off after sunup. Both for going into winter and back to summer, the day length changes every day, so must the timer. 3) Made somewhere other than China/etc.. Have something like this?
