Don't put timer at ground level where it can get wet of covered with snow.
Otherwise will work in any position as long as photoeye turned away from lights.

SOURCE: Can you please provide instructions

What you are describing is a wall electrical box for a "Wwitch Loop". What this means is that the power source (Hot and Neutral) go to the light first. What the electrician has done is run a wire from the light in which one wire is the hot leg from the source and the other one is the "switched leg" which runs back to the light as controled on-off power to it. The only legitimate way to use this timer would be to replace the wire from the wall switch to the light with a 3 conductor cable (3 current carrying wires and a bare ground or green wire). This would allow you to bring the hot and neutral along with the controlled "switched leg" as this time requires a constant source of power for the timer itself. Don't be tempted to let someone tell you to use the ground wire as a neutral. It is not safe to do that.

SOURCE: I put in a Utilitech

Open following link for programming and wiring instructions:

Yes, the timer can be programmed to turn on at 6am and off at 9pm all days of week.
The ground is not necessary for timer to function, however other wiring has to be correct, and white wire connects to neutral, black wire connects to Hot, and red wire connects to wire going to switch.
Timer replaces single-pole light switch only and cannot be used for 3-way switching.

There are no repairs for defective timer: Here are suggestions.
1) Locally purchased timer has longer warranty period since you can buy same timer later and return defect in new package.
2) Top of timer has slide switch. Most analog timers have 2-or-3 position switch that offers override capability. Set some segments, move slide switch each direction, and then manually rotate timer dial clockwise two full revolutions to watch how lamp turns on-off.
If lamp does not turn on-off with switch in at least one of the slide-switch positions, then timer is suspect.
3) Always a good policy to test outlets with cheap circuit analyzer to check for electrical abnormalities that can affect timer electronics.
Since this is mechanical timer with simple electric clock motor, chances are that reversed polarity will not immediately affect timer.
4) Put timer on a different outlet, controlling a different load, and see if problem is the same.
5) Make sure segments are pulled all the way up.

Sounds like this was probably a three-way switch you are replacing as there is no neutral (white) wire in the box. If so, you can splice the white wire to the green wire in other three-way switch box; then hook the green wire in the box you are placing the timer to the white wire of the Utilitech timer.

Rotate dial until current time lines up with arrowhead; when plugged in, dial rotates
48 segments located on dial; each segment is 1/2 hour
Segment pulled up = lights OFF
Segment down = lights ON
Override switch located top of timer, move switch to TIMER
