This is the switch for the lights on the front of the house. The cover is down to show the menu-selector. You can set up to 20 different times for the lights to turn on and off, all days or just weekdays or weekends, and it figures sunrise and sunset for you so you don't have to keep resetting for dawn and dusk. It takes a bit of time to wade through the instructions and set day/date/time and program on/off times. Oh, one other cool feature is "random". If you switch to random mode, it changes your programmed times by up to 20 minutes to simulate randomness.
This is with the cover closed. If you want to turn on a light without a program, you just push the cover and it switches the light on.
This is the Communication Center at the Underground Carpenter Mega-Complex. The wiring is not quite finished, but the telephone cable(Large black cable) is now run in, so next week our electrician can hook up telephone throughout the house. The large yellow cable is romex for 110v power. There are two more boxes to hook up inside the comm center which will supply power to the video amplifiers and modem/routers.
