Installing strategically placed security lighting means that there is nowhere for hazards and danger to hide. And that’s a huge win in our books. 

Benefits of home security lighting

Here are just a few of the reasons to consider installing home security lighting:  

Deter unwelcome guests 

Motion-sensing lights not only alert you whenever someone or something is outside, but if you are away for any period of time, they keep undesirables guessing if anybody is home. 

Lower insurance premiums 

Statistics show that well-lit homes are far less likely to be targeted by thieves or vandals. Having a home security lighting system installed will lower your insurance premiums. 

Prevent accidents 

Without appropriate lighting, trip hazards can’t be seen – leaving loved ones and visitors at risk of serious injury.  

Ensuring that any visitors are able to approach or leave the front door safely is a courtesy that also protects you from legal action.  

Where to position home security lighting

It’s important to position your outdoor lighting correctly for it to properly provide security and safety to your loved ones. 

When planning your layout, you should keep these areas in mind: 

  • Your house number – Keep your street number illuminated to help visitors easily you’re your home at night. 
  • Entrances – Keep all doorways well-lit. This will make sure you can see anyone who comes to the door 
  • Steps and paths – These should be well-lit to prevent anybody tripping or taking a misstep.  
  • Driveways – Thieves are less likely to steal your car if an area is lit up and well-visible. 

How to get started installing home security lighting

For any solar or battery-operated security lighting, you can easily do the job yourself. However a word of caution, because these are not the most secure and can easily be ripped off. 

If you are looking to install more secure electrical lamps and fixtures on the outside your home or along a pathway, it will require the wire to run underground because of the high voltage to your home electrical system.  

For those unsure about how best to connect outdoor lighting to the homes, or those wanting to plan an installation under expert advice, it pays to get in a professional electrician.
