The Slim Scarlet Fir uses ProTime™ Lighting Technology:
Christmas lighting is historically the Achilles heel of holiday decorations. The most significant impact that we can have on your overall experience is to supply a lighting system that doesn’t exhibit the ongoing failure problems associated with traditional Christmas lighting. Other technologies have been evolving in an attempt to solve some of these problems but have previously been incapable of reproducing what you have come to expect from a quality product.
ProTime™ Lighting Technology is the finest lighting available today for pre-lit artificial Christmas trees. Treetime's lighting systems solve the two major problems with Christmas lighting sets:
1) Broken, defective or missing bulbs in a lighting strand cause normal strands to fail as a complete strand.
2) Traditional incandescent bulbs have a short life span and burn out at a significant rate. The more bulbs that fail, the more the remaining bulbs become stressed. Eventually, all remaining bulbs fail in what is referred to as a “cascading outage”.
The secret to fixing the first problem isn’t in the bulb – it is in the socket and wiring system. Each socket in a ProTime™ light set has a tiny thermistor microchip that acts as a ‘silent sentry’ to keep the light string operating. When all bulbs in the string are operating properly, the chip does nothing. However, as soon as something happens to a bulb – whether it gets broken; becomes loose in the socket; falls from the socket; burns out or whatever – the chip takes over and acts as if it were a bulb to keep the rest of the string operating properly. It even acts as a kind of “surge protector” to protect the bulbs from power surges caused by other bulbs in the string burning out.
Simply put, no one has better lighting than we do - period!
