Have you gotten used to the shorter days with daylight savings time ending? It takes a little time to reset your internal clocks with darkness coming so early in the evening. It may also take a little time to remember those last few clocks around your house that you don’t see everyday. While you’re turning back the time on the last few, don’t forget about your outdoor lighting system as well.
Your Wilmington outdoor lighting system does more than just make your home and landscaping look great. It also gives a warm welcome home at night. It helps you easily navigate your way to your front door and get your key in the lock quicker. But if your outdoor lighting system isn’t turning on in time for your arrival, all of those benefits can become issues. A quick adjustment to your outdoor lighting timer is all you need. We’ve been getting lots of calls about timers the past week or so and we’re happy to help with yours as well.
When we installed your Wilmington outdoor lighting system, we included a timer to turn your lights on and off everyday. Depending on how old your system is, you may have to reset that timer with the changes that come along with the start and end of daylight savings time. The newer timers we use have a photocell to determine sunrise and sunset and can be set to run for a predetermined number of hours. After that time, your outdoor lighting system is turned off. We also have an astronomical timer that uses the GPS coordinates of your home to adjust to the changing time daily. This ensures your Wilmington outdoor lighting system turns on and off and the precise time of sunset every night of the year. There are no additional adjustments that need to be made to either of these timers.
If you are still coming home in the dark, give Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington a call. We can help get your outdoor lighting system timer adjusted correctly or upgrade you to the photocell or astronomical timer so adjustments will be a thing of the past. While we’re at your home, we can do any type of service work you may need on your system including replacing bulbs, straightening fixtures, re-burying wires or even add-on to your system.
