Home security is a priority for many homeowners. Adding security lighting – such as flood lights and motion sensing lights – to help deter would-be criminals and illuminate dark areas of vulnerability. When you install outdoor lights for this purpose, you improve your home’s safety and help increase your home’s property value.
When thinking about security lighting, consider the benefits that LED outdoor lighting offers.
LED Outdoor Lighting: A New Trend in Security Lighting for Homes
Say goodbye to the unsightly, unattractive security lights of the past. Today, low-voltage LED outdoor lighting systems are one of the best options for residential security lighting.
But low voltage doesn’t mean low light or low quality. These lights shine brighter, give off very low heat, and last longer than any light on the market. While all LEDs emit a soft, non-glaring glow, security and motion sensing LED beams flood areas with plenty of light to discourage criminal activity. Would-be intruders see spotlights and usually avoid houses that have them, knowing that they will be spotted.
Pair your LED outdoor lights with brass fixtures that absorb heat and extend the life of the bulbs. This LED/brass combination means your lights will perform in extreme heat and excessive cold without glass breaking or lamps burning out. Because LED lighting is energy efficient, you’ll see the cost savings on your electric bills.
Range of Security Lighting
One of most commonly asked questions is, “how far will my security lights shine?” The range of security lighting illumination refers to how far the beams of light penetrate the darkness. This depends on the bulbs lumens. Keep in mind that security lighting might not need to illuminate a large area. For example, you might just need to make sure your deck is well-lit.
Another point to consider is the motion sensor range. This refers to the distance that the light sensor will register movement in the darkness. Motion sensing security lighting balances energy efficiency with security. Because lights come on when triggered by motion, you won’t have to keep lights on all the time, which saves energy costs.
LED Outdoor Lighting Performs a Dual Function
LED security lighting performs a dual function. It creates memorable illumination that is aesthetic and offers safety and security all in one.
Consider some of the popular uses for LED outdoor security lighting:
- Landscaping, walkways, and stairs
- Driveways and entryways
- Decks, patios, and porches
- Backyards and large expanses of open space
- And much more!
