Thanks, Mike. Appreciate your help. One other question. I have an old building. I am replacing a digital timer light switch. The new plug is 3 wires plus the ground. My wiring is 2 wires. Can I use this timer and how do I connect it?

Give me the make and model number of the timer. Also the count and colors of the house wires.
