Types of Security Lighting

When it comes to security lighting, its best to consider the many different types of systems available. These include:

  • Motion-activated – Motion-activated security lights are only activated when they detect motion in a designated area, saving your money and energy when no motion is detected. These are one of the best ways to get some bang for your buck—you get added security without wasting energy.
  • Halogen floodlights – Halogen flood lights provide strong lighting at the flick of a switch. But it is important to remember that this security lighting option will consume more energy than most other types.
  • Fluorescent – Fluorescent security lighting is the most practical and conventional type of security lighting. Although many people may consider installing fluorescent security lights a DIY project, it’s best to leave the installation and design to a professional electrician to avoid personal injury and costly repairs.
  • HID – HID security lighting, or “high-intensity discharge,” emits strong light that is simply incomparable to other kinds of security lighting systems. Not sure if this is the security lighting solution you need? HID lights are best suited for large residential structures and backyards.

If you’re unsure which security lighting option is best for your landscape, contact John Nugent & Sons. We can help you determine the right fit for your home.

Benefits of Security Lighting Installation

Installing security lighting in your yard offers a variety of benefits, including:

  • Intruder deterrent – Keeping the area around your home or building well lit will naturally keep away burglars, vandals, and other intruders at night. Keeping on the lights at night removes dark spots for potential criminals to hide, and motion detector lights can provide an extra level of alarm.
  • Improved security – Security lighting improves your home security in other ways, such as letting you see anyone approaching your home at night, especially when someone comes to the door. You can pair outdoor security lighting with a home alarm system for extra protection.
  • Reduced insurance premiums – A safeguarded home is less likely to be vandalized or burglarized, and many insurance carriers are likely to reward homeowners with installed security lighting systems by providing discounts on monthly insurance premiums.
  • Safer grounds –Installing security lighting can reduce potential accidents by making it easier to see when walking around at night. Exterior lighting is especially beneficial when navigating the exterior walkways and stairs. Outdoor security lighting system should be positioned in both the back and front yard areas as a way to prevent serious accidents. If the home has an outdoor pool, it is critical to use exterior lighting to illuminate the area.
