How much time did you spend manually programming your outdoor lighting to prepare for daylight savings time this past weekend? Let’s face it; manual lighting timers are a headache. It is not only DST that can become a time consuming event to program either. Manually programming your outdoor lighting can become a cat and mouse game of chasing dusk as the season progresses and the days get longer. Fortunately, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Kansas City has the remedy for your manual timer blues. The cure is our intelligent lighting control automation and it will make the frustration of manual programming a distant memory.
Lighting control automation allows greater versatility of your outdoor lighting. It also enables you the freedom to control both your indoor and outdoor lights and other powered features. Imagine being able to isolate certain outdoor and indoor lights into zones that come on automatically at specific times to make your home appear occupied. We can customize these zones to fit your

specific needs which can easily be amended at any time to reflect a change in your tastes or needs. For example, during the outdoor living season we can program your deck or patio lighting to stay on throughout the evening to allow for a well-lit outdoor living area. This same space can be amended when we enter the cooler months of the year when you are less likely to be utilizing your outdoor spaces.
LCA also means your lighting can automatically come on at dusk and stay on until dawn, or the time you choose to have them turn off. Our smart system technology can even allow for the outdoor lighting to come at 50% power at dusk and increase as the evening grows darker. This feature is energy efficient and also creates an ambiance within your landscape.
Gaining access to your lights has never been easier with LCA. Your lighting can be controlled via your laptop or smartphone with this technology. Imagine being at dinner and getting a call from your son stating that he is running late for his curfew and will not make it home before the outdoor entry lights are programmed to turn off. Having access to your lighting with your smartphone

means you won’t have to cut your evening out short. All you have to do is take out your phone and reset the lights to stay on to ensure your son arrives home in a well-lit environment which will help in creating a safer more secure return home. It is that easy!
Last but certainly not least, programming your lights to reflect daylight savings time is worry free with our LCA. This smart system automatically adjusts to accommodate the changes. Daylight savings time will revert back one hour on November 3rd, 2013, with LCA “falling back” will be a breeze!
