Daylight Savings Time Begins March 13th — How Does Your Outdoor Lighting Timer Stack Up?

Welcome springGet ready for the onset of spring by gaining an hour during the Sunday, March 13th Daylight Savings Time change! We get more light for daytime fun in the backyard for barbeques, gardening and outside sports with the kids. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Charlotte utilizes a convenient astronomical timer on each of our outdoor lighting systems so you never have to worry about manually reprogramming it to make up for the change in hour. You can forget about finding your manual and recalling which dial or button to hit to make sure your landscape system accommodates for the seasonal change in light ever again.

The right timer will give you peace of mind by regulating your outdoor lighting system.

Astronomical timers work with the power of GPS to pinpoint exactly where you live and what the light requirements are in your specific area so your landscape system knows precisely when to turn itself on and off. You never have to do a thing to it, as it is “set it and forget it” technology.  It  doesn’t get any easier than this! No one in your household ever has to come home to a dark house again since our sophisticated timers know exactly when to illuminate your property, driveway, front entrance and any other feature you want. Even if your power goes out, your timer will continue to remember what it was set to thanks to a battery back-up.

This can save you on your power bill because the waste is eliminated, and it’s better for the environment, too.
