Increasing Home Security With Outdoor Lighting
Lighting up the dark areas around the outside of your home can improve security and reduce the posigbility of burglary or similar criminal activity. Taking time to plan your outdoor lighting will pay off in the long run. You're trying to make sure you light things evenly and reduce the number of dark areas around your property.
Here are a few tips to help you with your outdoor security lighting.
Flood Lights with Motion Sensors
Install dual flood lights with motion sensors on all sides of your home. They automatically come on when they detect any nearby movement.
Timers or Photocell Controls
Automation for your outside lighting will eleviate the burden of having to remember to turn on your outside lights. Using a timer or photocell control allows you to automate the process and not have to worry abut it. Keep landscape lighting on for the entire night from dusk to dawn.
CFL or LED Bulbs
Minimize your cost and increase efficiency by using either CFL or LED bulbs. Your outside light fixtures, especially the ones you will be leaving on all night, should use either CFL or LED bulbs.
