It’s almost time to “spring forward” — is your outdoor lighting timer up to the task?

Daylight savings time begins March 6th!

Sunday, March 6th marks the official onset of Daylight Savings Time where it’s time to “spring forward” and move the clocks up one hour. At this point the days start to get longer and dawn comes earlier and the evenings remain brighter for longer time. Of course this also throws many outdoor lighting timers for a loop as most on older systems are manually changed. Most homeowners have to dig out their manuals and figure out which dials and buttons to press to update their timers and get it straight with the change in time. It’s pretty annoying isn’t it?

Our LCA lighting timer delivers on the promise of set it and forget it.

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville, we can help you either reset your existing timer OR we can install a newer technology-based timer that will accommodate for daylight changes on its very own! What a relief to not have to fiddle or worry about your timer anymore. Every new system we install has a timer so that our customers can freely customize how their lights go and off at any time of day or night based on their personal needs. The flexibility our timers provide gives you lots of options and also removes the burden of remembering when to turn your lights on or off. This facet naturally increases the safety and security at your home and grounds and adds lots of practicality, too. Our timers make it look like your home is lived in even if no one is there even if you are at work or on vacation. Would-be thieves will always know your house is lived in even if you aren’t there.

Our timers are controlled by Lighting Control Automation (LCA) that requires no additional support or demands from you since they automatically update themselves based on your time zone and available light. You can forget digging out the manual and trying to figure out how to program your timer every couple of months to accommodate the daylight changes in your area. Simply set your LCA timer to whatever your lifestyle needs are and then it does the rest. LCA timers even save you money because your lights are on only when you want them to be, so you aren’t paying a light bill for illumination during hours that it’s not necessary.

LCA timers can be as simple as you want and you never have to worry about them again; OR if you enjoy a high level of control with technical devices, you can really have fun setting your timer for an ultra-enhanced lighting mood. Aside from controlling when your lights go on and off, highly adaptable LCA’s can even be set to regulate how much light is put out by your outdoor landscape system.  You can start off at a lower power level earlier in the evening and then go to 100% power as the darker part of night comes. You can even control your indoor lights and even appliances with this same timer if that’s what you’d like to do. Best of all, you can do this and even make changes to your lighting all from a mobile device such as your smartphone or your computer no matter where in the world you are! Neat!
