Timer or Photo Cell for Channel Letters?
We are often asked this question with regards to channel letter signs.
"When I have our electrician run electrical power to the sign should I have him install a photo cell or a timer to turn it on and off?"
We recommend both!
A photo cell works OK if you want your sign on all night.
A timer works OK if you don’t want your sign ever to be on during the day – even if it is cloudy and dark out.
What works best is both. The photo cell turns the sign on any time it is dark enough for the lighting to draw customer's attention, the timer keeps it from being on from say 11 to 6 in the morning when there is no one around to attract their attention!
Electricity is only used when it will help your business.
