The quote you received was for an entire rehab of the system, including all of the services listed above, as well as the replacement of the lamps with a three-year warranty. Most of the labor would have been spent on climbing the trees to service the moon lights, our specialty. If you find another company to switch those out, make sure to request they use “cool white” lamps. Otherwise, they will interrupt the ambiance of your property with a rather unpleasant “warm” security look.
The specialty lamp type you refer to is a twist-lock lamp, originally developed by GE to match the interior version of their common 120v lamps. We use these instead of the far inferior BI-PIN lamp another company will certainly suggest to replace them. BI-PIN lamps are easily knocked out of their sockets. We do not use them in installations because they are untenable for outdoor use around children or pets, and do not weather well. Our crews service systems that other companies have installed with BI-PIN lamps that suffer constant issues. Night Light only employs products and services that stand the test of time. That said, twist-lock lamps are readily available online or through Night Light at a significantly lower price.
(Ps. To keep the lamps from burning out prematurely, ensure the company that replaces the lamps tests the circuits afterwards. We regularly return to our systems, serviced by other companies, to find that most of the lamps had expired due to the lack of experience in working with multi-tapped transformers.)
Good luck to you! We hope that one day soon, you get to experience the system as it was originally designed. We know you’re going to love it!
