How much time will you spend this evening programming your outdoor lighting for daylight savings time?

Nashville-led-landscape-lighting

Our LCA technology ensures your lights will be on when you need them, each and every time.

Tonight is the night. Daylight savings time begins at 2:00 AM Sunday, March 10th. This time change means that many homeowners will be busy setting their clocks and other timed devices an hour ahead this evening to ensure the correct time. If you are still using a manual outdoor lighting timer, you are probably busy programming your timer right now in lieu of DST. Manual outdoor lighting timers are simply time-consuming and inconvenient. As the days begin to get longer they also force you to chase dusk during the entire season. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville wants to introduce you to lighting control automation, or LCA for short. LCA is convenient, versatile and will ensure that you will never have to worry about programming your outdoor lighting to accommodate DST, or chase dusk again.Daylight savings time

Not only does our LCA technology automatically adjust to facilitate the change for daylight savings time, it provides automation that you will enjoy every day. It simplifies your outdoor lighting. Our LCA provides effortless control of your home’s indoor and outdoor lighting and other powered features. The smart timer can do more than simply turn on selected lights at dusk. It can control your indoor and outdoor electric outlets. Here are just a few of the benefits LCA will provide.

  • LCA will ensure your outdoor lights come on automatically at dusk and off at dawn or the time of your choosing.
  • LCA will allow you to designate zones of lighting, both indoor and outdoor and program these zones to turn on and off automatically so your home always looks occupied. This is a huge convenience when you are on vacation.
  • LCA will allow you to program your lights to come at 50% power with the onset of dusk and progressively increase as the evening gets darker. This feature not only saves energy; it also creates a romantic ambiance in your landscape.
  • LCA allows you to control lights and appliances inside your home to come on automatically as well. We can even place a central keypad to control the entire system at the flick of a switch in any location you choose.
  • LCA can be programmed to gain control from your laptop or even your smart phone. This feature allows you to control your lighting from remote locations for the utmost convenience and versatility.
  • LCA will allow you to illuminate your home and landscape in any configuration and to come on at varying times. The choices are only limited to your imagination.

Many of us have that one place, structure or location in our yard or business that needs a little magic to bring it to life. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville has the answer and it is as easy on the wallet as it is on the eyes. Since conventional outdoor lighting techniques sometimes aren’t possible in certain setting,s we use permanent festival lighting, or what we refer to as fiesta lighting to amp up an area that needs lighting. Fiesta lighting provides the perfect solution to liven up a difficult or overlooked area in your yard or a romantic courtyard at your business. Festival lighting is also a fun and unique lighting technique that works well in courtyards, covered patios and other outdoor structures.

We use multiple strands of low-voltage festival lights and string them over the span of the area we are illuminating. We use cable to support the weight of the electrical wiring when we install fiesta lighting over an area with a large span, this ensure the safety and the integrity of the system. We use commercial-grade lighting products and professional installation to achieve this cheerful lighting effect.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville uses sustainability practices and practices what they preach.

Our approach to a greener workplace promotes sustainability, which affects our world on a global level.

Nowadays, everyone you talk to is discussing the importance of living in a world where sustainability practices are key to preserving our environment on a global level. Small changes in the way you live and function on a daily basis can impact the entire planet in the big scheme of things. This includes the way you function on a professional level as well. Discussing the importance of sustainable living practices is one thing, but ” talking the talk” and “walking the walk” is another. Outdoor Living Perspectives of Nashville is instilling sustainable practices in our everyday professional duties in an effort to make a habit out of trying to better our lives and the lives of our grandchildren in years to come.

We offer our clients a way to invest in tomorrow through the use of “green” outdoor lighting technologies such as LED and LCA, (lighting control automation), so we,along with our parent company, and our local manufacturing company ( B&B Mfg.), are practicing what we preach about sustainable living practices. We are operating under a “green” approach to our workplace by recycling materials such as copper fixtures. We also recycle all the paper in our office and our goal is to allocate a paperless system in the near future by incorporating tablets with each of our field workers. We are also moving towards an automatic bill pay system so we save paper by not having to send out invoices each month. We are installing solar panels on our building as well, to reflect the importance of less impact on the environment by reducing power consumption.

Solar_Panels_LR_5

We are installing solar panels on our building to decrease energy usage in our workplace, and lessen our direct impact on the environment.

By working in a field of expertise, such as outdoor lighting, that now has the technology to offer homeowners a more sustainable living product, such as an upgradeable LED bulbs that never get discarded in a land-fill but can be refurbished to reuse, it is a real “no-brainer” to begin at the core of our business. The workplace. Hopefully, each employee, delivery-person, and individual whom frequents our office will have these sustainability practices “rub off” on he/she and take a little piece of that realization back home with them creating a ripple-effect of sustainability initiatives to live by.  Remember, that what we do today, will affect tomorrow.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville offers you the whole enchilada with all the trimmings.

The ultimate in smart home technology is lighting control.

Would you buy a car just because it offers you the convenience of a remote control ignition that could be started before you walk out the door to get into your car in the morning? You probably would not let that be the deciding factor for you to purchase a particular car. But in the same token, finding the perfect car with the perfect features to suit you would only seem more appealing when it came with all the bells and whistles, like a remote ignition.  Most consumers don’t purchase items or services just to get the extras, but when the extras are part of the available package it can truly sway you in one direction or the other.

Many analogies can be made in terms of making the decision to go with a product or service that offers you the convenience of hands-free or remote features. But until you see an individual need tied to these features personally, you may likely view them as nothing more than mere “extras”. Outdoor lighting is one such example. The technologies of outdoor lighting are advancing rapidly and with those advancements come high-tech automation that is geared to make your home safer and the available way to control your outdoor lighting much more convenient.

Control your lighting with your smart phone, network your lights!!!

Wouldn’t it be great to not have to worry about turning the lights on and off in the evening? Wouldn’t it be great to have a way to turn the lights on for your daughter who is running late returning from her movie date with her girlfriends while you are still out to dinner? How about being able to program your lights to come on and off at different intervals while vacationing to give the appearance that someone is home without having to depend on a friend or neighbor to do it for you while they are feeding Fido or watering your ferns while you are away? If an easy, convenient answer to addressing all of these situations with simplicity seems too good to be true, it actually isn’t.

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville creates magic with holiday lighting

Can you imagine the memories a Christmas lighting display like this will create?

We are quickly approaching the time of year when our thoughts turn to the smell of home-baked goodies, busy shoppers running to and fro with presents adorned with ribbons of red and green, and the way seeing a beautifully lit Christmas lighting display makes us feel inside. I remember as a child my parents would pile all of us in the car right after Thanksgiving and we would set out in search of neighborhoods with mesmerizing and memorable holiday lighting displays. This memory still brings a smile to my face when I remember seeing those lights for the first time each year from the eyes of a child, the clarity of this memory is unforgettable and still makes me feel happy to reminisce.

This memory, this moment in time is what homeowners wish to achieve when they set out each year to create an outdoor lighting display of their own. The problem with this is that many times what the homeowner visualizes and what actually comes to fruition are two different things. This can be because of time constraints, lack of design knowledge or just simply because they don’t know where to begin. That is where we come into play…

A few outdoor lights on a string will not create a memorable holiday lighting display, but we can. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville offers a holiday lighting program that will take the guess-work out of designing your Christmas outdoor lights this year. We design, order, install, remove and store your Christmas lighting display for you and all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the season with the ones you love. No more fighting with tangled icicle lights and teetering off the ladder risking an injury. No more worries of the hazards that over exerted circuits can cause. No more rituals of turning on the lights one strand at a time. With our holiday lighting program we can also program your indoor and outdoor lighting displays to come on and off in unison by using lighting control animation that offers set it and forget it convenience.

Christmas Lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives

Christmas Lighting by Outdoor Lighting Perspectives

Believe it or not, just this week I talked with our first customer of the year about our holiday lighting program. She had a horrible experience last year with her holiday lighting display. She went with one of our competitors and was very dissatisfied in the quality and the fact that she had to “rent” the display, rather than own it. She was impressed with our program because our customers actually own their holiday lighting display. We discussed wreaths and bows and even decided to add a wreath to each of her home’s dormers and lighted bows at the front of the driveway. We both left the conversation with excitement and anticipation of the holiday cheer that will be present here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville in the weeks to come. If you aren’t familiar with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville’s holiday outdoor lighting program, here is how it works in a nutshell.

We come out and meet with you to decide on what you want your holiday lighting display to look like. We have a vast portfolio  and years of outdoor lighting experience, therefore we can help you if you are undecided about certain things. We then proceed to order the lights you need to complete a stunning holiday display. We assemble the display for you prior to the holidays.Then after the holidays are over, we dis-assemble the lighting display and store it for you in our temperature controlled warehouses in anticipation of the next holiday season. With our method, it is not only a professionally executed display, you also own the lights and this leaves plenty of room to add-on as you see fit from year to year.

Right now we are offering a discount on new clients and current clients that order additional lighting products that sign on with us and have the lighting installed before Halloween. This may seem early, but actually setting up your display by late October is prime time, plus you get the added luxury of having the capability to light the display on Halloween night creating an ultra-safe scenario for the neighborhood trick-or-treaters. Who knows, maybe you can add some holiday cheer to the neighborhood on a night fit for ghouls and goblins! We use a great deal of C9’s in our displays when the customer prefers this. This light is very big for a couple of reasons. Because of their beauty, they lend a classic and traditional touch to any lighting display and they are LED so this means they are easy on the pocketbook as they are on the eye.

One really great opportunity to take advantage of is by booking early in order to start your installation by mid-October. We can install these lights in the trees (called wraps). Then we can get the lighting done and have you powered-up right after Thanksgiving in time to start the holiday off right. Your lighting system will come complete with a timer that you can set to literally light up at 12:01 AM on the day after Thanksgiving. (Black Friday could turn into bright Friday at your house).

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville not only has the advantage in the beauty and elegance it pours into its holiday lighting displays, we also offer a competitive edge. Your lights are yours from year to year. They are ordered new. They are not a rental and you have the capability to add-on at your own pace and taste. When the lights are rentals, they are previously used and you have no way of knowing how old they are, or how safe.
