    In all of the homes that I have tested it in so far it seems like you can place it inside or outside and it will still control the time of day or night.

    It doesn't matter, it's all part of the same instance/zone any way.

    The question made me think of another point. You can actually place items beyond the boundaries of the yard, where other players can’t interfere with them. so unlike the lights, you can put this out of reach. You would have to recall it to make a change, and put it back out there after, but it only seems to revert when you put it away, not when you move it.

    So not just outside, but outside!

    I haven't been able to test this myself yet , but it seems that visitors can't interact with the hourglass.
    Can someone confirm is this is true or not?
    I can see pros and cons for both scenario's honestly, so I'm curious to know.

    I know it doesn't work with the Psijic Grand Villa but does it work with Shalidor's Shrouded Realm?

    Shalidor's Shrouded Realm has a skybox that changes colors so wondering if that was controllable with this.

    I believe it depends on permissions, just like lights, so that limited visitors would not be able to change it but others would.

    Ah that makes sense. That is good to know. ;)

    Wait really? I was told by several people it didn't! That's pretty neat if so!

    Any idea if it works in Shalidor's Shrouded Realm?

    It doesn't change much, though. Because it has its unique overlay. But there's still a sun and it will move, making your shadows move as well.

    It works in that the “sun” moves and the shadows do as well, but you don’t get a blue sky and clouds like in other areas.

    I don’t have the other house but someone else was able to answer that for you, thankfully.
