With all the talk lately about holiday outdoor lighting, we haven’t had a chance to discuss the end of daylight savings time and the adjustments that come with it. Most evident is the adjustment our own body clocks need to make. If you are anything like me, I feel like it is almost bedtime when I get home from work since it gets dark so early. My body still hasn’t gotten used to the time change and the extended darkness. But it’s more than our own bodies that need to adjust, our outdoor lighting needs to be tweaked too.
If you have outdoor lighting, you may have noticed that your lights are not coming on or going off at the right times. And with dusk changing just a little bit every day, it’s hard to keep up. That is, unless you have a lighting timer from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Greenville or Western NC. Our timers automatically adjust for sun-up, sun-down, seasonal time changes and even leap year. When we install the timer, we will program in your exact latitude and longitude location so the timer will know the exact time to come on every night, and off every morning. You never need to worry about adjusting it again. Even if your power goes out, our timers won’t need to be reprogrammed because their long term battery backup stores all that information in its memory. They even self-adjust to keep the current time so when the power is back on, you’re back in business.
If you think that’s a big job for such a little gadget, you’ll be thrilled to learn about the other benefits it creates. The timer will make sure you home looks aesthetically beautifully at dusk, showing all your architectural features, landscape characteristics and even increasing security around your home. But, the best part of all is that is can save you money by turning on at dusk and off at dawn, or any pre-programmed time. Your bulbs will last longer and you won’t have to worry about running your lights before, or after they are needed.
If this sounds like a win-win situation to you, give us a call and we can get a lighting timer installed for you. Now is the right time to take control of your lighting.
