Timer Switch to Control 2 Lights?

Can I use one wall mounted timer switch to control two outdoor lights? I'm guessing as long as I don't exceed some Amp rating I should be OK. Currently I have 2 seperate timer switches. Since, they're not digital, to sychronize them is nearly impossible.

The answer is that yes, a single timer can control multiple lights, as long as you don't exceed the rating of the timer.

However, doing this may not be so easy. Are the switches both in the same junction box? Are the swithes both on the same circuit?

The answers to those questions are the place to start.

Yes of course you can. Always be extra careful when dealing with electrical wiring
