Outdoor lighting has been steadily increasing in popularity. People love to have the ability to showcase their home while also getting the benefit of additional home security.
If you want to maximize the security benefit you get out of your outdoor lighting, the first thing you have to do is survey your immediate premises. Take a good look at the house, the landscaping, perimeter, interior, and surrounding areas. Then make a note of any security concerns you have.
From there, you’ll be able to come up with a list of improvements. It could be something like adding a motion light over your garage door. If people walk outside by your garage area during the nighttime, a light will show you exactly what’s going on. Maybe you need a light in the backyard, or maybe you want to keep varmints out of your garden. The system could detect the motion from rabbits or deer and turn on the light to scare them away.
There are a lot of considerations that you can make to improve your home’s security. You might want to make sure there was adequate lighting at the front door so it would be intimidating for intruders. A spotlight right on someone nefarious would make them think twice before doing anything they’re not supposed to.
We know that most burglars and thieves don’t want to be in the spotlight. They’ll seek out a dark, isolated area of the home where they feel more comfortable. A motion detector in those areas might be a handy way to alert yourself and the neighbors that someone’s there. You might also want to use a photocell that detects when it gets dark. If not, you could set the lights to a timer to accomplish something similar.
