Other Reasons To Invest In Outdoor Security Lighting, Include:
- Exteriors need to be well lit for security, especially at entry doors and around garages and workshops.
- Garage and workshop interiors should be extremely well-lit for safety during the handling of dangerous tools and equipment.
- Swimming pools should be well lit to prevent accidents.
- And walkways, patios, or outdoor living areas need to have some illumination for safety.
The garage area, sides of your home, and possibly an area in your back yard could benefit from floodlights. The best type of floodlights to install are those which come on automatically from dusk to dawn. There are also energy-efficient fixtures and bulbs you can choose so you don’t have to worry about a high electric bill.
2. Motion Sensor Lighting
You typically don’t want your lights to be on all night but only when someone is near. Motion sensor lights are the right option for these areas. They are best used in combination with other outdoor lighting types instead of just by themselves or the home exterior will stay dark.
Many light fixtures today offer motion sensor technologies including porch lights or some interior lights. It is very convenient to install motion sensor lights in the hallways or in certain rooms of your home for night-time safety. They recognize that you enter the area and give you or your family members enough illumination to keep from bumping into things.
3. Daylight Responsive Security Lighting
Having security lights that automatically turn on at sunrise and off at dusk is wonderful. You won’t need to worry about leaving lights on during the day or remembering to flip a switch when you get up or go to bed for the night.
