Deter Burglars With Outdoor Security Lighting

Reading Time: 2 minutes

As a business owner, outdoor security lighting is necessary when creating a safe ambiance for customers.  Outdoor security lighting can also prevent potential break ins by keeping your building lit up during the day and all night.

Outdoor motion sensor lighting will illuminate as soon as it detects any movement such as a person, animal, or car. While you don’t have control over street lighting, the lighter your neighborhood is at night, the more likely burglars will refrain from trying to commit a crime at your home. Adding a professional alarm system with the outdoor security lighting will help you feel the most protected.

Benefits of Installing Outdoor Security Lighting

By installing outdoor security lighting in your home or business, you can help keep burglars away and eliminate any dark hiding spots. Some of the advantages of installing outdoor lighting include:

  • Feeling more comfortable walking around your property at night
  • Preventing you, your family, or visitors from tripping when coming home or going out
  • Providing accent lighting when entertaining at night
  • Increasing the resale value of your property

It’s important to also note that some homeowner’s insurance policies require outdoor security lighting or offer a reduction in your premium for having it.

Choosing Motion Light Sensors For Your Home or Business Security

Ultimately, security lighting comes in different types, shapes, and sizes. The addition of motion light sensors is a great option for home or business owners that want to cover a large field of view. They are triggered by any movement. Once the movement is gone, it shuts off. This discourages intruders as they will instantly illuminate when near your home or business.

Security Lighting Placement

Once you’ve chosen the best security light for your home or business, the next step is to place it correctly. If you want to place the lighting high up then you need to make sure that it will be bright enough. It’s also important to angle it correctly. For dark corners, choose a softer light that is placed lower to overlap with other lights. Some business owners also opt to place a light shining directly on the power supply box so it deters from cutting the power.

Why Is Maintenance Important?

All security lights will require regular maintenance to continue working properly. If you don’t want to face the consequences of a faulty electrical system or ineffective outdoor lighting, you need to hire a professional who can maintain and inspect your system and provide expert advice on necessary repairs or upgrades.
