Programmable Scheduling

Programmable scheduling for outdoor lights has many practical and security-related benefits. You can determine automatic light operation and shut-off, program dusk-to-dawn lighting, and set the lights to dim when no longer needed. Thomas Edison can help you set up programmable scheduling at your home or business for greater convenience and safety.

Light Sensors

Sensors are a popular multi-purpose feature for both homes and businesses. Depending on which kind you choose, outdoor light sensors can reduce exterior lighting to save energy. If you opt for occupancy sensors, these can detect body heat and utilize technology like microwave, ultrasonic, or video detection. 

Camera-Based Smart Sensors

Exterior lighting systems that incorporate the use of a camera are growing in popularity. These systems simultaneously notify you of a person and illuminate the area. Some include voice controls so you can address the individual approaching your home or business. Thomas Edison can help you integrate camera-based smart sensors with your smart home system for greater convenience and peace of mind.

  • Increased energy savings

  • Illuminate the area for both visitors and potential thieves, improving safety
