Protect the exterior of your home or business from would be intruders or vandals by installing some bright and effective security lighting. You’d be surprised at what a difference it makes! Read on for more (also see home security).
Security lighting is installed around the outside of your home or premises in order to increase security. They do this by making the area more visible to the occupant or neighbouring properties, and this increased visibility is an effective deterrent to would be intruders or vandals.
To be effective, security lights should be pointed out from windows and doors and illuminate at least the pathways and gates. Ideally, they will also illuminate areas such as stretches of lawn that can provide access to the property. Security lights should also be placed high so that they are more difficult to disable.
Sensor lights are the most common lights used for security lighting as they only light up in the presence of movement but you can use timers or controls on other lights so that they only light up during night hours or when you want them to.
Security lighting can be installed by security professionals or electricians. You can choose to source the lights yourself ready for installation if you choose (from lighting companies, hardware stores and so on) or you can allow the professional to draw up a security lighting plan and supply and install the necessary lighting and controls for you. Of course, the professional you choose needs to be correctly licensed and insured and fully qualified. They should also provide you with quotes that estimate the cost of the work as well as the cost of the lights if they are being supplied.
