How to time your Christmas lights

How to time your Christmas lights

If you’re trying to create a holiday display to wow people driving through your neighborhood at night, putting your lights on a timer is a simple way to ensure you’ll get maximum exposure, even when you’re not at home. If you want to make sure you’re not wasting money, by accidentally leaving the lights on during the day, a timer can help with that too.

Put simply, a timer is a low-cost item that can help you get the most out of your holiday LED display, and ensure that you’re using energy even more efficiently. We offer several different models, which offer flexibility based on how you would like to control your lights (mechanical timer/photo cell), and how elaborate your display is (how many plugs/outlets you need) .
