We considered quality, affordability, and ease of use when making our selections. The Topgreener Astronomic, Intermatic Self Adjusting, and Leviton Vizia have astronomical clocks that automatically adjust to your local sunrise and sunset times, so you can schedule your lights to turn on as soon as it gets dark, and several models on our list have a one-touch daylight savings time feature. We also included the SWE AutoChron as an option that doesn't require any wiring.
