Some timers will not work on lights that have a ballast like Fluorescent types. You will need one that makes a mechanical connection or has a relay inside.

I haven't used timers for decades. I use a X-10 system with 3 prong appliance modules controlled by my PC.

What size and type of light? Sometimes small or older lights won't work with timers.

I just use a 4 dollar one from Walmart. Took me a minute to figure how to set it up right. Now that I do it works great. Have it set from 7am to 10pm. And so far 3 weeks in it has worked well.
