GFCI and Timer working
I am installing an outdoor lamp, which now needs to be protected by a GFCI outlet. The good news is I have GFCI outlet already in our utility room that I can use.
However, I want the outdoor lamp to be controlled by a timer switch (such as the Honeywell Econoswitch RPLS740B).
It will be wired Supply -> GFCI -> Timer Switch -> Lamp.
What I don't know is whether the GFCI protection will still work if it's through a Timer switch.
Also the Timer is only rated for lighting circuits at max 15A, so is there a possibility the Timer might blow before the GFCI trips?
I did think about wiring it with the Timer switch before the GFCI outlet, but then the outlet wont be able to be used if the Timer isn't "on".
