Choosing an App for Programmable Christmas Lights
Today, you can have programmable Christmas lights for your home that will change color to blend in with the seasons. In fact, you can program your Christmas lights to run on auto during the holidays and then shut down and save their energy until the following spring.

One way you can save money on electric bills each month is by using LED Christmas lights. The traditional bulbs tend to be much more expensive than the LED ones. While you might want to skip buying traditional bulbs all together and buy LED instead, you should keep in mind that they are not always the most efficient. So if you are planning on using LED lights at home this season, you might want to think about the advantages of using an app for Christmas lights.

What can you program? For example, you can programmable lights to come on when you get home from work or when you return from a long day at school. You can program them to only light your door or your porch. You can even program them to come on for Christmas morning, just in case you want to dip into your savings for a nice breakfast.
If you do happen to burn through all of your programmable Christmas lights and want to use the power of the electrical outlet, you don't have to worry. You can just reset the Christmas lights to come on at a random time using your app. And because they are programmable, you can program them to run for days or weeks at a time.
Does the app-cost anything? Since the app costs $4.99 to download and program, you might as well just save that money instead. After all, most people who own phones or tablets will already have the app installed. Plus, most phones and tablets have flash drive memory to store the programmable lights.
Will the light turn off automatically when it gets too cold? Some people might not want to program their Christmas lights to turn themselves on and off. They might want to set the programmable Christmas lights to come on at a certain time every year without actually leaving their house. Or they might just want to be able to switch them on and off when they feel like it. In that case, you might want to consider purchasing a plug-in solution to program the lights to come on or turn them off manually.
