When using HID lighting you MUST control your lighting cycle with a contactor timer. this is because a normal domestic timer unit cannot withstand the high electrical conductive load required to ignite the HID lighting.

Plugging HID lighting directly into a domestic timer unit will cause the timer to prematurely fail and lead to a potential electrical hazard which may result in your lights being fused either on or off.

For even more control, each socket has its own power switch. With the ability to turn on/off independently you can leave your ballast plugged in, without having to unplug anything from the Black Box.
