Multi stage light timer

I've never used a light timer. Does anyone make an affordable one that you can set stages for?

For example: i want a light to come on for four hours, off for four hours, back on for four hours throughout a 24 hour period.

This would be amazing.. or if anyone could reccomend a light timer to buy that would turn on for a set amount of time per day everyday accurately.

I use cheap Brinks timer and they work OK as far as programing the problem I have is "so many of them" They will only handle one set of lights and I have LEDs and fluorescent lighting that I set to come on at different times this requires 2 timers per tank

Take a look in hardware or even the pet store. I have 3 timers, two different brands that can turn off and on at least two times. I doubt the brand will help, they have been sitting around for years.

This is the one I just bought. It is cheap and easy to use and you can set it for multiple times...

I bought mine in Wal-Mart and it has two plugs for two tanks or if you have separate LED in-tank lights. You can set mine four on and four off for a 24-hour cycle.
