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.

Testimonial: "Thank you so much for your feedback to my question. I will try your suggestions. If they fail, I will buy the type of timer you recommend! :)"
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.
