Outdoor & Pool Lighting Troubleshooting
I recently moved into a new property that was a bank repo and I am slowly working through trying to fix many problems. This weeks challenge is trouble shooting the outdoor landscaping lighting and pool lights.

Right next to my pool pump is a bunch of controls.:

1) Intermatic Timing Control Center

2) Hampton Bay outdoor lighting controller?:

3) I have no idea what this is:

A) The Hampton bay box plugs into a socket on the Intermatic. I tested the power of the outlet and it is live and the Hampton bay is getting power. I also searched all over the Hampton Bay controller and there is no model number. According to the instructions on the front of the HB you can push the button of the face repeatedly to select from six functions but nothing seems to happen when you do. Additionally, of course the outdoor lighting is not working at all. How do i trouble shoot this unit?

b) Also what is the box that is on the ground and has a fan on it in picture #3? It has a cover (its off in the photo) and looks like it is attached to the HB too. Is that a AC to DC converter for the lighting?

C) The lights inside the pool are not working. First, I am not even sure where to turn them on from. Is that controlled by the HB or is that controlled by the Intermatic?

Thank you for any help anyone can provide.
