The Time Change and Exterior Office Lighting

A little more than a week ago, we fell back – turning our clocks back one hour.

The biggest inconvenience about the time change at home may be the adjustment you have to make to your sleeping hours. But if you’re leaving work late in the afternoon or early in the evening, you have noticed something different – that walk to the car is being done in the dark. And if you’re an employer, you certainly want your staff to feel safe coming and going from your place of business.

The time change always serves as a good reminder to think about your business outdoor security lighting.

If your office outdoor lighting is controlled by an on/off switch in your office, it may be time to think about an upgrade to an automatic system.

This could be as simple as a timer that you adjust manually on a seasonal basis. And there are more advanced options that can allow you to set the outdoor lighting based on how light or dark it is. You can set your outdoor security light so it’s on only when you want it to be, and the brightness can even be adjusted to be brighter when someone steps in front of it. The same controls will keep the lights off during daylight.

If you’re not sure what your exterior lights can do, we will be happy to examine them and upgrade your system if needed.
