Outdoor Dusk to Dawn Lighting Timer Controls Installation in Jessup

Outdoor Dusk to Dawn Lighting Timer Controls Installation in Jessup tristar electric

Your commercial property can benefit from outdoor dusk to dawn lighting timer installation services.

Commercial buildings such as warehouses, offices, medical centers, and other facilities must maintain well-lit premises overnight. Nighttime illumination also benefits from streets, parking lots, and other public areas. Outdoor lighting helps to deter crime and provides safe navigation even after operating hours. Dusk to dawn lighting is the term for this type of exterior lighting; with TriStar Electric, your commercial property, parking lot, or public area can take advantage of professional dusk to dawn lighting timer installation services.

Dusk to Dawn Lighting: How It Works

Dusk to dawn lighting uses a photocell or time clock to control when outdoor lighting activates during nighttime hours. Unless it is a motion-detecting light, the bulb will produce light throughout the night through a timer control. Dusk to dawn lights apply to building entrances, building perimeters, public pathways, roads, and other public areas. Naturally, they are only applicable outdoors.

Timer Controls

A time clock is a dial connected to one or more lights that one must set manually. All you have to do is to set the start and stop tabs to the appropriate hours you would like the lights to operate, turn the time clock on, and let it run.

Between the two types of dusk to dawn lighting timer controls, photocells are preferred. They work in tune with the setting and rising of the sun, so your premises will have sufficient lighting exactly when visitors need it. With a time clock, you will need to change the timing manually to adjust for daylight savings and changing seasons. With a photocell, you have less work to do.

Benefits of Dusk to Dawn Lighting

LED dusk to dawn lighting with photocell timer controls allows commercial properties, streets, and parking lots to maximize electricity consumption. LED lights use far less energy than other types of lighting, such as halogen, fluorescent, or incandescent bulbs. Moreover, they last several years at a time. One can control a photocell’s light sensitivity, so they always come on when most timely.
