Beamswork & TC420 ... Need some help

So I have the Beamswork 72" LED Strip light and I also purchased the TC420 to control it. I have included a pic of both sides of Strip light. 1st pic is timer side and 2nd pic is plug/switch side. The strip light looks like it has ground as common and the positive is the side that turns on each color. The TC420 seems to use the positive as the common and controls the LEDs brightness with the Negative.

What I am trying to do: I would like to just plug the Beamswork power supply into the jack of the TC420, then run outputs to in timer input to control the LEDs. I would like to be able to control both the day mode and the night mode on the Beamswork. I just want to keep it simple.

1. The power supply for the beamswork is DC15V 6A. Does it matter whether I plug the power into the jack or hook it up to the terminals?
2. Is there a way to use the timer plug to control the lights?
3. I can turn the switch to have both color lights on or just blue on. Can I set up the TC420 to control both channels?
