    Solution to my problem

    So i had a few of those mechanical timers, man are they junk... and i cant imagine a power bar with 10 timers on it so...... long story short the WaveTimer

    Microprocessor controller timer / wave maker with 4 outlets guess i couldof made an 8 outlet one but i wanted to manage my 400w metal halides.. Unit is all done and works will post pics later, but my current dilemma is the menu system here's what i've done any input appreciated.

    Setup
    -> Clock [Set hour / min]
    -> Feed Timer [0-99 Minuites]
    -> Port 1

    -> Feed Timer [0-99 Minuites]
    -> Port 1
    --> Type Wave / Timer
    ---> If Timer Timer Count [1 to 10 timers available]
    ----->Timer 1...10 Start / End Times
    -> Port 2 ...
    -> Port 3 ...
    -> Port 4 ...
    -> WaveMaker
    --> Night Start / End Time
    -->Night Settings
    ----> Pattern 1234 or any variation
    ----> Port 1 Duration 15secs -> 1hour
    ----> Port 2 Duration 15secs -> 1hour
    ----> Port 3 Duration 15secs -> 1hour
    ----> Port 4 Duration 15secs -> 1hour
    -->Day Settings
    ----> Pattern 1234 or any variation
    ----> Port 1 Duration 15secs -> 1hour
    ----> Port 2 Duration 15secs -> 1hour
    ----> Port 3 Duration 15secs -> 1hour

    under ports will have a power fail delay, which if there is a power failure it will shut the lights down for x mins before turning them back on again..... those pesky mh/s
