Outdoor lighting is an excellent way to enhance home security and curb appeal, especially during the winter when daylight is limited. A well-lit house is less likely to be targeted by intruders who fear being seen and caught. At Aqua-Bright, we have experts who can help you select the correct type of outdoor lighting that best suits your security needs. Here are some ideas you should consider when using outdoor lighting to improve your security.
A Wide Variety Of Options
If you are planning to design your outdoor lighting, it can be helpful to incorporate different types of lights. For example, you can use a combination of high-mounted floodlights and smaller lights for better security. The high-mounted floodlights provide broad illumination of your home, highlighting its best features. The smaller lights help to illuminate walkways and entryways. The combination of these two types of lights will make your outdoor lighting scheme feel more comprehensive.
Durable Lighting Fixtures
When choosing outdoor lights, selecting fixtures that withstand harsh weather conditions is essential. Ensure your lighting fixtures are suited for outdoor use and durable enough to endure different weather conditions. If you plan to install lighting fixtures on covered outdoor porches, look for fixtures that can withstand wet conditions. On the other hand, if you intend to install lighting fixtures in open spaces, you should choose completely weatherproof fixtures.
Outdoor Lighting Activation Options
Consider installing timed security lights to avoid the hassle of turning your outdoor lights on and off daily. You can set these lights to turn on and off simultaneously every day, regardless of whether you’re home or away. They’re a great option if you travel frequently or want to control the energy your lights consume.
