What Kind of Timer Do You Need?

Wall Switch Timers

Indoor and outdoor motion detectors sense movement in a room or space for a preset period of time. They are ideal for rooms where you’d like lights to function hands-free, such as a laundry room or bathroom. For outside, motion detectors are great for garages and porches to avoid walking in the dark. Programmable switches allow day-to-day preset times. They even give the impression you’re home when you are out of town for a period of time.

Plug-In Timers

Plug-in timers create a sense of ease by turning on and off your lights, appliances or seasonal decorations at preset times. They can help you avoid leaving holiday decorations running all day or coming home to a dark house. With indoor and outdoor plug-in timers, you can not only decrease your overall utility cost, but also have peace of mind.

Adding light timers and dimmers from Mr. Electric help you enjoy the full-range of possibilities with the benefit of energy savings as you create the perfect ambiance for any occasion. Contact us to learn what our team can provide for your home!

How Do Dimmers Work?

Dimmers work by adjusting the flow of electricity to your lighting fixture. In a technical sense, all light switches are dimmers, because they either turn on or shut off the flow of electricity to your light source. But when people talk about dimmers, they are usually referring to a switch that makes use of a sliding scale or a rotating knob that finely controls the brightness of your light source.

You can make use of these to reduce the amount of electricity consumed when your lights are on, or set the right tone for a gathering in your home. And with modern technology, you don’t even have to rely on a light switch to add dimming features to your lights. You can have one of our electricians set up smart home features that allow you to dim or brighten your lights conveniently from your phone or other smart device.
