Lighting timers are an excellent way of saving money on your energy bill. The use of these types of timers has made it more convenient and comfortable to have a worry free agenda. Consumers can have the lights and devices of their home or office programmed for daylight savings or another specific time setting depending on their specific needs. For example, those in the Jewish community that observe the Sabbath or religious holidays would benefit from installing a lighting timer in their home and save on the energy bill as well as not having to turn the lighting on and off as needed. The timer can be used for security purposes as well as by having the light on the porch come on when you are not at home.
Outdoor Motion Sensors
Outdoor motion sensors are another cost-effective installation which can be programmed to power the light “on” when movement is detected in the dark areas around the outside perimeter of the home or office. One of the benefits of an outdoor motion sensor is added security. The lights will turn “off” after a preset time when no further movement is detected providing a deterrent to burglars. The motion sensors for outdoor lighting can be installed as a wall switch which controls the lighting or as part of the light fixture itself.
Indoor Motion Sensors
Indoor motion sensors can be installed in any room where the lights remain “on” when the room is left vacant. The most common type of indoor motion sensor is an in-wall switch which is used in bathrooms, laundry rooms, closets, or hallways. Being able to control the amount of time the lights are powered on can help reduce the energy bill to your home or office.
