A box with two outlets that turns one ON and other one OFF

I have two lights. I donot want both of them coming ON at the same time. Is there a device with two outlets that has one outlet ON and the other OFF based on a time? For example I want one of them ON from 6:00PM-10:00PM and the other one rest of the time. 10:00PM - 6:00PM (next day) ? Is there a device which can do this?

Thanks
RM

How about a powerstrip and two distinct timers programmed with opposite schedules? It would be pretty cheap -- lamp timers are like $5-8.

I want to set this up outdoor and very little room there. So was looking for one small device instead of connecting two timers.

You need a timer with a single pole double throw contacts.

Any idea where I can get these? Home Depot, Lowes?

You could wire your own outlets to this (or a similar) timer:
