I use Intermatic Lamp and Appliance Timers. They have little pins which can
be set at any time on the 24 hour clock. I just use regular shop lights, so
don't know what the fancy stuff might need.
The timers last a couple to several years (or about twice as long as a power
filter.) I usually keep a spare purchased at the last hardware store sale.
I use one for each of six fixtures. Another serves with two fixtures and a
multiple plug gizmo. They come on and go off in a sequence. This somewhat
simulates dawn and dusk and allows me to finish what I'm doing when the
first light goes off without clobbering myself in the dark. ;)
There are undoubtedly less pedestrian set-ups. They may have more bells and
whistles (and more light demanding plants). It works for me.
All the best!
