Timer and Photocell Controls

Interior and exterior lighting play a dual role – it keeps criminals away while helping to enhance the features of your home. Of course, you can’t always be there to turn the lights on and off. TriStar Electric can install timer and photocell controls in your house that are easy to use and understand.

We only use high-quality timer controls that can be set inside your house and then used to turn off exterior and interior lights and electrical systems at designated times. Depending upon your schedule, these timer controls can ensure that when you come home, the lights are on and the area is safe and secure. Battery backup timers are also available and they provide a virtually fail-safe solution should you lose power.

Unlike older timer controls, the equipment we use is easy to understand – and it can be reset to accommodate the changing seasons. Of course, if you have problems setting your timer controls, call TriStar Electric and we will do our best to answer your questions.

Photocell controls are similar to timer controls, except they turn exterior and interior lights on and off when the amount of light falls below a predetermined level. Photocell controls are available for interior and exterior lights, and are installed by our expert electricians. They can then be synced to the light sources you wish to control.

Our skilled team of electricians handles installation of timer controls and photocell controls. After you schedule an appointment, we will meet with you and discuss your needs, and determine if your current fixtures will work, or if an upgrade is required.

The installation of these timer and photocell controls does not take long, and our electricians can overcome any challenges that may occur. Not only do our electricians possess a great deal of experience and knowledge, they can rely on our in-house master electricians for guidance.

Whether you need a timer control, photocell control, or both installed in your house, TriStar Electric offers a wide range of solutions. Once the install is complete, we will show you how to operate these controls, and if you forget, help is just a phone call away.
