Benefits of Outdoor Lighting Timer

Outdoor Lighting Timer – What are the benefits?

You have probably heard the saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That’s because preventive measures are typically much less costly than reactive ones, and they also carry fewer risks. This principle applies to outdoor lighting as well.

If you invest in high-quality outdoor lighting timer fixtures with timers, you can save energy by turning lights on when it gets dark outside, deter burglars by having them turn off at random intervals during the night, or simply create a beautiful landscape design by setting up timed lights to come on at different times throughout the evening. All these benefits might seem expensive at first glance, but they are actually very cost-effective in comparison to other solutions for problems like burglary deterrence or landscaping lighting design!

The four major benefits of outdoor lighting with timers are listed below. 

– Energy Conservation 

By using timers on your outside lights, you can easily conserve energy by turning them off when they’re not needed. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, half of the average household’s electricity consumption is for outdoor lighting, and approximately 10 percent of that energy is used to light areas like driveways or landscapes where no one usually spends time. Timers make it easy to only turn lights on when they are necessary, saving you money in the long run!

– Security

Many homeowners choose not to install outdoor lighting because they believe burglars will target their property. However, a study conducted by the National Crime Prevention Council found that burglars avoid places where they feel uncomfortable or over-powered. Once burglars reach the property and find outdoor lighting has been activated, they are much less likely to break in because the risk of being caught is too high!

Outdoor lighting with timers has been shown to greatly reduce the number of burglars in a neighborhood.

– Landscaping Design

Timers make it easy to install lighting fixtures outside without having to worry about turning them on or off each night, leaving you able to enjoy your landscaping design! Simply set timers for lights placed around your yard and away from your house, and let them turn on throughout the night so you can enjoy your hard work all week long.

– Energy Savings 

Timers are a great way to save energy because they allow you to safely turn lights off during the day, but keep them on at random times at night. According to the U.S. Department of Energy , turning lights on and off repeatedly throughout the day is one of the most wasteful habits in regard to energy consumption. If you want lights on during the day but don’t need them at night, timers are an easy solution!
