Eliminate Day Light Savings Time Hassles with an Automatic Control Outdoor Lighting Timer

Here comes Daylight Savings Time (DST) again on March 14th, and with it comes a hassle for many homeowners to adjust their outdoor lighting timer to match up with the time change. As the days get longer, your outdoor lighting timer has to be manually adjusted every few weeks to make sure your outdoor lighting isn’t going on or off too early (or late). This means, you may have to locate your timer manual to recall which dials or buttons to hit to make the changes. It’s a total headache! Worse yet, if you forget to do this task—you are wasting electricity by illuminating your home and garden when its not needed. Ouch!

Lighting Control Automation (LCA) Outdoor Lighting Timers Make DST Worry-Free

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Nashville can adjust your manual outdoor lighting timer so you don’t have to deal with the task. Better yet, we can install a brand-new Lighting Control Automation (LCA) timer that will forever remove the headache of dealing with DST any time change throughout the year. You set an LCA timer ONE TIME with your zip code and it automatically knows exactly when to turn your outdoor lighting on based on your location.

As the days get longer or shorter throughout the course of the year, an LCA timer automatically adjusts itself based on the available daylight in your geography. It eliminates the need to remember to adjust your manual timer, and it saves you money because you only use your landscape lighting exactly when its needed. No waste on the electric bill!

LCA Timers Improve Safety and Security Due to Added Visibility


Our timers make your home look lived-in even if you aren’t home. They turn your lights on an off when required, and you can even adjust them with your smart phone. The convenience factor alone is well worth ditching your old manual timer. You can control also your outdoor lighting when you are on vacation or on a work trip. You increase the security of your home knowing your lights are going on and off when they should be. If your home and property isn’t sitting in darkness, you also ramp up the level of safety since visibility is ensured with your outdoor lighting on as it should be.
