    Hey Jacob & Matthew.
    You talked a bit about outside lighting and that you have timers on those lights which you have to program when it gets darker/lighter outside.

    I wanted to offer a different solution as my wife and I used to have the time as well but would forget until we noticed we needed to reprogram it.

    We purchased outdoor lights that have a Photo cell on it. So we leave the power on and when the light outside begins to fade the fixtures would come on automatically. In fact, I have 3 of these in the front of my house and I’ve noticed due to shading some will come on before others.

    Anyway, another solution for keeping the outside of your house lit.

      Great info, and pretty crazy we didn’t even mention that option. So glad you added that!
