Upgrading To Our Astronomical Outdoor Lighting Timer Is A No-Brainer!

Outdated mechanical landscape lighting timers can be such a hassle! If the power goes out you have to reset it, which can be a total pain. As the days get shorter and longer, you have to physically change the on and off points yourself manually. Of course, daylight savings time presents a further problem with an hour lost or gained. It’s an ongoing timer annoyance!

You’ve got to dig up your old manual and start twisting dials and pushing buttons every few weeks so your outdated mechanical timer can keep up with changing daylight. Who needs the headache? Let Outdoor Lighting of San Antonio North help you upgrade to an astronomical timer and be free of the aggravation. As normal daylight changes occur throughout the year, your astronomical timer will change itself AUTOMATICALLY. No need to reset!

Astronomical timers work magically through satellites. Your new timer knows exactly how to adapt the startup and shut off time of your landscape lighting system based on your GPS location. You simply set it one time, and then the timer does its thing without any worry on your part. If there’s a power outage, it doesn’t matter because the timer will resume to the right spot based on where you live once the power returns.

Astronomical timers are energy savers because your landscape lighting goes on and off only when it is supposed to. You aren’t wasting power when it isn’t necessary. That’s big savings to the wallet and worth converting to an updated timer alone.

With newer timers, you are assured to come home to a well-lit home every evening. Your family and friends can safely walk around your property because your landscape lights are on when you need them. You can walk the dog in the evening and roll out your trash cans without a hitch. If you come home late from work, your outdoor lights will be on. The kids can get to your front door easily when they get off the school bus, too.

If you are interested in upgrading to an astronomical timer, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of San Antonio North can help you. We can add one to your existing system without much fuss. Satisfied with your existing mechanical timer? No worries! We can reset it or service it whenever you need, too.
