Step 1: Gather Your Tools

First things first, grab your smartphone, tablet, or whatever you are using to reference the video. Having your device handy will make the process smoother than ever.

Step 2: Locate the Timer

Track down your lighting timer. It’s usually installed near your electrical panel or within your outdoor lighting system. If you’re unsure, consult the installation manual or give us a shout โ€“ we’re always happy to help.

Step 3: Adjust the Clock

Now, it’s time to tweak the clock settings on your timer. If you’re using a digital timer, simply follow the instructions with Jake to set the correct time. For manual timers, rotate the dial clockwise or counterclockwise until the current time aligns with the arrow or marker on the timer face.

Step 4: Update the Timer Program

Most lighting timers come with programmable options for different days and times. Take a few moments to review your timer’s program settings. Make sure your outdoor lights turn on when you want them to, creating a warm and inviting ambiance.

Step 5: Test Your Lights

Once you’ve set the timer, it’s crucial to test your lights. Head outside and observe your outdoor space as the timer activates the lighting. This step ensures everything is working as planned, giving you peace of mind knowing your property is beautifully illuminated after dark.
