Timer suggestions

I have the 29 gal Coralife Biocube with the moonlight LED strip on its own plug, actinic flourescent on its own plug, and flourescent 10K on its own plug. Ideally I'd like to find a power strip where I could plug them all in and program each outlet accordingly so that LED and flourescents come on for the times I program. Any suggestions? Kinda hoping to avoid getting three separate wall timers and would love something more compact like a power strip. Any thoughts?

I tried GE's timer power strip which has 6 timer settings, but you can't program each outlet on its own.

Found a cheaper version at Home Depot but I think the OP wants to control outlets individually so not sure this works...meaning outlets on separate timers, not tied to one being on when the other is off (but I could be wrong).

This one is pricey but might fit the need better if you want both timed outlets on at the same time.

I have one of these. It enables you to program 4 of the outlets on individual timers. The only issue is the other four are just regular outlets. But it does allow setting timers by the day of the week and time as well.

Oh wow, didn't know that. I had the cheaper version with the dial and it was pretty limited, your right that's exactly what is needed...

It's pretty handy . I have an extra one for the OP. How's $10 sound?

so you CAN program each of the 4 individual timer outlets!? I saw this online last night but it looked a lot like what I'd already bought.

This is what I currently have, and while the 4 timer-controlled outlets allow you to pick 6 different timer settings, each setting controls ALL of the 4 timer-controlled outlets at the same time, not individually. I was pretty bummed because I thought this was exactly what I needed. So for instance, if I program a 10:00a on and 6:00p off for program 1, it will turn ALL 4 timer-controlled outlets on at 10, and off at 6, not just one individual timer-controlled outlet.. if that makes sense.

This here is what I have:

$10!? SOLD! I will take it in a heartbeat! I'm in cumming, too, so I'd be happy to meet or swing by. I'm sure you have an awesome setup, and I'd love to see it!
