Security Lighting: Necessity or Overkill

Outdoor security lights

There was a time when outdoor security lights were part of only commercial properties. However, over the years many homeowners have started to accept the benefits of security lights in keeping their homes and families secure. While securing your windows and doors can prevent burglars from trying to break into your house or place of business, strategically placed security lighting can deter potential thieves and ensure safe passage at night. Even though, security lighting should be combined with another security systems such as an alarm system, their mere presence acts a deterrent to any kind of unauthorized access.

Still a Growing Trend:-

Despite being part of most commercial properties for many years, homeowners are still not convinced and simply consider security lighting an overkill. If you are divided over installing security lights here are some points that may help you decide:-

Peace of Mind:-
>> It is a known fact that most thieves operate in dark environments. Naturally, a well-lit area will drastically reduce the chances of any kind of break in. It gives you security to know that you can see anyone on your property, and it warns any potential intruder. Even if you are away for a week, having your home well-lit at night will give you peace of mind wherever you are.   If you have other surveillance systems installed in your home, security lights can improve your chances of positive recognition. Apart from a deterrent, security lights provide a peace of mind to homeowners.

They don’t have to be on all the time:-
>> The cost is likely to be the most difficult barrier to overcome when explaining the benefits of installing security lighting. Many people are concerned about the additional cost to their energy bills, in addition to the initial installation. Which is particularly true if you think the system will be on all the time. Fortunately, now security lighting systems come with motion detectors that allow the lights to turn on only when they detect any kind of movement. The homeowner can rest assured that their energy bills will not skyrocket.
