I have installed several Intermatic SS8 timer switches to control customers' porch/coach lights. However, I have a customer who does not want quite as complex a switch, plus they needs them in Ivory. Any suggestions?

Those switch-like timers go roe $35- how cheap can the guy be?
Otherwise, I can only suggest adding a photocell to the circuit- though that will be more work, and probably cost $25 in parts.

It's not the cost, it's the simplicity. Plus, it's the color. The SS8 comes in Almond and White. Almond is close, but it's certainly no Ivory. I'll run it by him anyway.

Why not get a test-pot and paint it?.
