Landscape lighting synced to a timer is a great choice for people who take a lot of vacations, but these days the simplicity of a timed lighting setup makes it an excellent choice for many people. Timed lighting systems are a good choice when you want to be sure you’re arriving home to a well-lit house, or when it’s important to demonstrate a regular schedule.
Battery or generator backup
Most simple, out-of-the-box solar or outdoor lights are only as good as the life of the battery within. But when you start to consider a truly comprehensive outdoor lighting system, you don’t want to deal with your entire property going dark like a Christmas tree with a single burnt-out bulb.
High-end lighting professionals plan for your home’s landscape lighting as an overall system, with buried wires, efficient generators, and workmanship guarantees that don’t leave you hanging when half your lawn goes dark.
