You can use all the old tricks to reduce the amount of time you spend getting up to those. Make sure you're putting in 120v lamps, not 115v lamps. I'd also think about profiling the dimmers down to 95% or so, which will extend your lamp life.

Rep plots are your friend!
+1 rep plots

A 5% voltage drop will nearly double lamp life with almost undetectable other changes. Sensor settings allow whatever voltage max you want, 115V is default. 115 is roughly 95% of 120 and 110 is 95% of 115.
