Discuss new timer switch in the American Professional Electrical Advice Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net

Hi
I have 3 light switches in a single box. 1 switch controls the hallway lights, the 2nd switch controls the garage inside lights and the 3rd switch controls the outside lights.
I would like to replace the outside light switch with a timer switch.
The switch I will take out has 2 black wires and a ground wire. The timer has a white, a black and a blue wire. I am assuming the blue and black will replace the 2 black wires on the original switch, but I don't know what to do with the white wire.
All the white wires are connected together. I am assuming that one of the black wires go to the light and the other to the bundle of black wires. Any one can tell me which wire goes to which?
thanks
Paul
