Despite it happening every year, when the time changes in November, it always comes as a shock. Darkness continues to come earlier and earlier in the weeks leading up to the end of daylight savings and then in one night, it’s dark at 5pm. Many people leave for work in the dark and come home in the dark as well. At the end of the day, come home to bright light as well as enhanced safety and security by adding professional outdoor and landscape lighting.
If you’ve visited our site in the past, you know the difference architectural and landscape lighting can make. Our trained designers target ways to not only increase the curb appeal of the property by washing the façade in warm light and highlighting the property’s most interesting details; they also look for ways to add safety and security. Adding a few path lights along a walkway or sidewalk or illuminating steps on the property instantly increases sure-footing. We also look for areas of the property that tend to be dark at night, for example, a side porch that you enter through. Wouldn’t it be easier if you could see where you were you putting your keys?
While you could leave your lights on day and night, you don’t have to. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives installs energy-efficient and smart lighting solutions for homeowners and commercial properties alike. With simple timer settings, you can have your lights come on at dusk to that you know you’ll come home to light. You can also have them on in the morning, too! Smart timer solutions and the highest-quality LED technology will keep your home bright but won’t make a big impact on your energy bill.
