It may be your location for the photo cell. There is a cover on the cell in most cases that slides up and down to let in light. Or you may try turning it in a little different direction to get more light.

The EJ500C is designed only for standard incandescent lights, not chandelier bulbs, CFLs, etc. Replace it with the ST01C, and you'll be fine. Intermatic may even exchange it for you if you if you complain to them.

As luck would have it I'm 60, and learned how to program your 0141224 wall switch timer.
You can see instructions with big print and pictures on following page.
Press CTRL key on keyboard and use scroll wheel on mouse to make web print bigger.
Add a comment any time.
You have wired your timer correctly and the lights turn on when you push on-off button.
If lights do not turn on, we need to review the wiring.
Your timer looks like photo below.
I'm going to parrot back the manual with some extra words.
To start, press the reset button and clear any programming
Each program has ON time ... and OFF time
So you set program1 ON and then set program1 OFF
When you set program1 ON, you choose the Day, hour and minute you want program1 to turn ON.
And then you set program1 OFF, and choose Day, hour and minute for program1 to turn OFF.
Your ON-OFF times for program1 should be on same days.
For example program1 ON for all-days-of-the-week, but program1 OFF is for TU Tuesday, then timer will not work.
IN this case, program1 OFF should also be set for all-days-of-the-week.
Setting the clock:
Press and hold CLOCK button
Keep holding CLOCK button and press DAY button until display shows current day (MO TU WE TH FR SA SU)
Press Hour button until current hour with am pm displays
Press MIN button until current minute displays.
Release clock button and current day and time show on display
At no other part of instructions do you press and hold one button while pressing other button.
Press PROG button until "1" and 'ON' show on display
This is program1 ON
Press DAY button to choose which days for program1 ON.
You can choose: all-days-of-the-week and MO TU WE TH FR SA SU show on display
Choose individual days and MO or TU etc shows in display
Choose weekdays MO TU WED TH FR
Weekends SA SU show in display
Press HOUR button to select hour for program1 ON
Press MIN to select minute for program1 ON
Now program1 ON is ready, next, you will set program1 OFF
Press PROG button until "1" and 'OFF' shows on display
This is program1 OFF
Press DAY button to choose which days for program1 OFF.
( Remember, you want same days for ON and OFF)
Press HOUR button to select hour for program1 OFF
Press MIN to select minute for program1 OFF
Now program1 ON and OFF are ready, next, you will set program2 ON by repeating same steps above.
You can set up to 7 programs.
If you don't want to set program2, or any more programs, that's fine.
To exit programming and save your program, press CLOCK.
Now current time shows in display.
Final step: set MODE
Press MODE button until AUTO shows in display. You want AUTO for programming to operate lights. That's it, timer is ready.
If you're going on vacation, press MODE button until RDM shows in display, and then timer turns lights on-off at random
Copy and save these instructions to your computer so you have them next year.

If I understand correctly, you want to add a photocell to existing receptacle.
Start by looking at receptacle:
Receptacle has 3 different colored screws.
Green screw for bare ground wire
Brass screws with black Hot wire connected.
Silver screws with white Neutral wire.
How to wire photocell to receptacle.
Remove black Hot wire off of brass screw and connect black wire to photocell-black wire. This will power the photocell switch.
Connect photocell-red wire to brass screw on receptacle. This will turn receptacle on-off whenever photocell switch turns on-off.
Connect photocell-white wire to silver screw, and this will complete circuit to photocell switch so the switch is able to operate.
All white Neutral wires are connected to silver screws.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on circuit or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.
