You may be considering installing outdoor security lighting on the exterior of your home. There are a variety of options available that offer a wide range of benefits to homeowners. To choose the perfect outdoor lighting, it is necessary to take into consideration your home’s layout, your specific needs and, of course, your budget.
Once you have determined the ideal security lighting for your home, it is time to plan the installation needed to provide superior protection for your home and family. When it comes to installing your outdoor security lighting the professionals at Gervais Electric, Inc. recommend you rely upon our highly trained technicians to help answer any questions you may have, as well as the installation of your exterior lights. Our team stands ready to serve you with all your decision-making and want to offer the following insight to homeowners in search of the most effective and affordable lighting system.
Typically, homeowners choose to install exterior lighting for purposes of deterring criminals and providing additional outdoor lighting when walking about the premises in the evening hours. Often, outdoor security lighting creates shadows which ultimately contribute to risk of injury while making it much easier for intruders to move about the property. To maintain high visibility, you want to begin by creating a design and layout that does not produce shadows.
Our consultants can help you match the proper type of security lights with the appropriate areas in your yard. Small lights are usually best in your yard, while flood lights and motion lights work well on the sides of your home and in those areas where you have a shed or other outdoor building. Installing a variety of exterior lights, including walkway lights and spotlights, will help to provide the best coverage of your home and yard.
The Many Benefits
Peace of Mind
One of the biggest benefits of installing your exterior lighting system is for simple peace of mind. Being able to leave your home to enjoy a night out or even a weeklong vacation knowing your security lights are in place helps to deter burglars and allows you to enjoy the time away. In addition, when at home, your motion lights allow you to see who is at the door once the sun has set.
For most homeowners, safety is at the top of their list and it is a top benefit of passive and active outdoor lighting designs. This type of lighting is typically used to line walkways and driveways. A customized active and passive lighting design helps to deter individuals from venturing onto your property. Active and passive lighting will almost always include flood and motion sensor lights as well.
Installing outdoor security lighting can contribute to lower home insurance premiums. A home that is well lit is less apt to be the victim of a burglary, which indicates your home is safe and translates easily into a reduced home insurance premium.
