Using Outdoor Lighting for Security

Using Outdoor Lighting for Security

Well-planned lighting also increases the security of your property.

There are many reasons for installing outdoor lighting at your home or business. It can draw attention to your business, showcase your beautifully designed home, and light the way for visitors and friends. Well-planned lighting also increases the security of your property. If you’re looking to add outdoor lighting to your home or business, call the lighting professionals at TriStar Electric today!

Lighting Designed with Safety and Security in Mind

Eliminate Shadows– One of the biggest problems with most lighting designs is that there end up being too many shadows. You never know what could be lurking in those shadows, which presents a major security risk.

Location Matters– The type of light you will need depends on where it will be installed. Motion detector floodlights are great for outbuildings, such as a garage or shed. If you’re installing security lighting in a public area, placing lights higher up will help to prevent tampering. It is also important to make sure all walkways and stairs are well-lit.

Even Coverage– You will want to make sure your security lighting coverage is even. Super bright lighting in some areas and dimmer lighting in others just creates more shadows. Plus, it’s just unattractive. While the lighting is there to make your property more secure, you don’t want it to take away from the curb appeal of your home or business.
