Let Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley make springing forward easy!

Welcome spring smart outdoor lighting timersThis weekend it will be time to adjust all your clocks and timers to reflect the beginning of daylight savings time (DST).  Indeed it is wonderful to have an extra hour of daylight each evening to enjoy the PA and DE outdoors, but, the task of making sure all your devices are in sync can become a headache!

In a perfect world, all timing implements would be advanced enough to do this on their own. An average household can have more than 10 devices they have to adjust for DST; these include the alarm clocks, wall clocks, mantel clocks, clocks on your household appliances (microwave, oven, DVR, etc.) and this is just the tip of the iceberg. Beyond your back door there are more timers that will need to be adjusted too.  These may include your irrigation system and your outdoor lighting timer.

DST is fast approaching!Fortunately, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Delaware Valley can help you cross the chore of having to adjust your outdoor lighting timer OFF your list for good. Outdoor lighting technology continues to advance and enable homeowners to enjoy the benefits of a smarter home. With this in mind, we offer the convenience of “set it and forget it” timers for your Delaware County outdoor lighting system with effortless astronomical timers.

Our Astronomical Timers

Same home as pictured above with outdoor lighting:These timers consist of a single-point control device that is much more accurate than traditional digital timers. GPS technology allows the timer to automatically adjust the times your lights turn on and off. We simply enter the GPS coordinates of your home and the current day and time. Then, your outdoor lighting will turn on at sundown and off at sunrise each day of the year without adjustments. This takes away the need to constantly chasing dusk in order to have your outdoor lighting working in line with any changes from day to night. If makes DST a breeze, and it also adjusts automatically throughout the year for seasonal changes with the onset of darkness from dusk until dawn. Other on/off times can also be entered depending on how long you want lighting system to operate. In addition, we can also implement effortless Blue Tooth controls via your smartphone or tablet to take the convenience of our timers to a new level.

See the difference outdoor lighting can makeOutdated manual timers are a pain  because they require a re-set as the days get shorter or longer. That’s quite the hassle to remember to do that every few months and how to program it. Astronomical timers remove all the worry and fuss of seasonal time changes because they adjust themselves. No need to deal with the aggravation of dials or buttons anymore! You tell your astronomical timer where you live and at what time you’d like your lights to turn on, and it takes care of the rest. They even have a battery backup that saves your settings if the power goes out, too. It certainly doesn’t get easier than that.
