Accidentally leaving your holiday lights on overnight – or worse all day – can be expensive.
Clark Griswold really did it up in the 1989 classic “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” Kim Komando estimates it would cost about $3,456 to light Griswold’s 25,000 bulbs on a South Carolina home. You’d pay $111 per day if you accidentally left the lights on!
By adding lighting control to your holiday lights, you can be sure the lights are not on any longer than you’d like.
Using a QEI system, you can set the lights to automatically turn on and off at pre-programmed times. Plus, you can control them remotely from anywhere in the world.
This is also helpful for interior Christmas tree lights. You always want to turn those lights off if you are not home. Can’t remember if you turned them off before leaving? With the QEI app, you can check from anywhere you are to ensure the lights are off. No need to waste a trip running back to the house!
