To deter theft, many people leave lights or televisions on when they are out. Obviously this kind of use is wasteful, and can really drive up an electric bill. Timer lighting systems can be a great way to reduce energy costs without having to remember to shut off all the lights in your home. These are cheap to purchase and will pay there way very quickly by switching your lights on and off for you insuring lights are on in your house only during regular hours. Some systems also have a vacation security feature that can switch the lights on and off at random times between a set period so no one will know the house is unoccupied.
