Installing a digital timer with an extra wire (4)
(Maple Grove, MN)
Digital Timer 3 wires hookup 1
I am replacing a digital timer switch inside my home to turn off and on my outside porch light. Replacing one I do not like. It is for a single switch. The old switch (see two photos) has a black wire marked hot, a red wire marked load and a green wire marked ground wire. The new timer box has an extra wire; a black, red, blue and ground wire. Help! Looking at the directions (photo attached) I am guessing I connect the black to the hot, the blue to the load(this WAS the red wire on old timer box) and cap off the red? And copper is ground.
