Keeping family, home, and precious treasures and valuables safe and secure is on the mind of most homeowners. Utilizing every resource to heighten the security of your home is optimal. Where keeping the windows and doors locked are fairly basic, homeowners can increase their security with alarm systems, but just as important can be the outdoor security lighting system. With that in mind, we at Burley Electrical Services would like to take the opportunity to discuss home security lighting systems.
Home Security Lighting Systems; Outdoor LED, Motion Sensor Flood Lights & More
Motion Sensor Lighting: Through the use of passive infrared technology, the motion sensors are able to detect motion. Not only will the sudden lights give you warning someone is close by, but prowlers may be taken back the sudden lights and leave the area.
Improved Surveillance: An outdoor lighting system can significantly increase the effectiveness of the surveillance cameras along with bringing light to shadows and improving the visibility. Because there was insufficient lighting, many otherwise perfect videos have been rendered useless. Ensure that the areas that are being monitored are well-lit at night to improve the quality of footage if your security system is equipped with surveillance systems.
Smart Timers: One of the primary purposes of your security lighting is to give the illusion the home is occupied when everyone is away. To contribute to that feature, set all of your security lighting on a timer so that it turns on and off at specified times. This is not only effective exterior lighting, but interior lighting as well.
Professional Lighting Installation: There are quite a few DIY kits available, but with professional installation, the quality is a considerable difference. Professionals utilize quality equipment and efficiently install them to ensure optimal use, where the DIY kits are of low-grade quality. Professional electricians make certain that the lighting system is connected to a reliable power source.
Lighting Placement: Many people are at a loss when it comes to lighting placement. Apply this guideline when selecting the placement; illuminate all dark, shadowed areas around your home, including the nooks and crannies. There are several places that are ideal for security lighting to offer a few examples, they include the following:
Garages: A common place to install motion-sensor activated security lights because when properly adjusted, the lights will turn on whenever a vehicle or person enters your driveway, illuminating your path.
Doorways and porches: Increase the lighting around the front and back door porches and doors can give double lighting.
Sides of the home: The dark areas that offer plenty of cover, often dividing homes a convenient brick wall, gives opportunity. Lighting this area up can offer less cover for the criminal minded.
Home Security Lighting: With increased lighting surrounding the exterior of your home, especially the garage doors and entryways lend toward improving the safety and security of your home. By investing in the additional security lighting system, you can very likely deter anyone who considers breaking into your home. Not only does the security lighting increase the security, but it lightens up the path for the residents and approved visitors to traverse their way inside; avoiding tripping and falling as well as finding the keys and making contact with the lot with ease, but it also, in the right application, can increase the beauty of your home.
