If this is not your timer, add a comment.

A number of folks are writing in about dusk-dawn-timers flashing.
The manufacturer suggests turning photo-eye away from all lighting when installing timer.
Always aim photoeye toward dark region of yard.
I would unplug the timer and let it reset.
Try timer again, turned away from lights so there is no feedback.
Put black tape over photeye and see what happens.
If timer still doesn't work, then timer is defective.

Maybe photoeye circuit was overwhelmed by intense light converted to electrical input.
I test timers, and 4-6% arrive defective, and most last just a season or two, and then you buy another, but the price is affordable.

Local Home Depot sells the GE 15107 outdoor yard stake or wall mount.
I bought one tonight for testing.
It has no photo eye
It has a dial timer where you set exact on-off times by moving plastic segments on dial perimeter.
For example set timer for ON at 5:30 and OFF at 6:00 am depending on your latitude north or south.

SOURCE: Can I use outdoor timer

If outdoor timer is programmable, and does not turn ON automatically at dusk, then timer can be used indoors.
If outdoor timer is activated by photo eye, and turns ON automatically at dusk, then it cannot be used indoors, because the timer turns ON when it senses darkness.

We need clear instructions for setting the timer


Woods makes several outdoor timers:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html

Image that shows with this post is Woods model #49647.
Below are instructions for #49647 timer.

If your timer is different, add a comment with model number and I'll post instructions for that timer.

Woods model #49647 is outdoor timer with photoelectric control that turns timer ON at dusk.
There are 4 possible settings that show on dial.
Rotate dial to make timer selection.
OFF = timer is OFF full-time until you change dial.
ON = timer is ON full-time until you change dial.
Dusk-Dawn = timer turns ON at dusk and OFF at dawn
2, 4, 6, 8 hours = timer turns ON at dusk, and turns OFF 2, 4, 6, or 8 hours later.
