Every home has indoor lighting, but not everyone has lighting outside their house. Employing a qualified technician who can provide outdoor lighting services and install lights in your yard can help deter burglars, create a lively atmosphere for entertaining friends as well as prevent critters from eating your grass and plants.
Home security lighting is becoming more and more popular with homeowners as crime levels increase. This type of outdoor lighting comes with many different benefits, the most important of which we’ve listed here.
Home security lighting helps illuminate any shadows that a potential burglar can hide in, which is often enough of a deterrent to prevent crime. If your lights are on, you or your neighbors would also be able to see any suspicious characters lurking near your home, giving you time to call the police or scare them away. Having lights on also shows criminals that you are home (even if you aren’t), which can also prevent crime.
If your garden is frequently terrorized by furry creatures, security lighting can help keep your yard safe. Whether it’s small rodents or larger animals that ruin your plants and flowers, bright lights will often scare them away and discourage them from coming back.
If security lighting is not enough to deter burglars, installing lights outside your house will still keep you safe when you come home. You won’t spend ages trying to find the right key for your door, and will be able to get into your house quickly and without hassle.
One of the most popular types of outdoor security lighting is motion sensor. Because motion sensory security lights only turn on when they detect movement, these lights are the perfect balance between security and energy conservation. Instead of keeping your lights running all night, you save money and prolong the lifespan of your bulbs by installing lights that only turn on when a person or animal comes within range of their sensors.
Another popular security light option is LEDs. These lights can be kept on 24/7 or automatically turned on at a specific time. Simply ask your technician about automated options, and you won’t have to worry about remembering to turn your lights on. If you choose to run lights all night, it’s recommended that you install LED lights over incandescent bulbs. While they are more expensive, their energy efficiency and extended lifespan will save you money in the long run.
Have you ever tried to host a dinner or birthday celebration outside only to be forced inside when it starts getting dark? A growing trend that helps illuminate any outdoor dinner party is known as ambience or landscape lighting. Unlike bright security lights, landscape lights provide a warm, inviting atmosphere that allows you to enjoy being outside without having to shine a torch to see anything.
Landscape lighting can be installed along walkways or paths leading to pools or outdoor areas to guide guests, or lights can be situated around dining areas and recessed into walls. If a qualified technician is used to provide outdoor lighting services, they can easily install ambient lights into areas that provide illumination without being seen, creating a cozy environment that you can comfortably relax in without lights shining. It’s important to employ a licensed electrician when installing ambient lights outdoors, as the bulbs are exposed to the elements and thus need to be well protected.
If you’re interested in taking your property to the next level, outdoor lighting services are the perfect way to do just that. Getting a profession from Art Plumbing, AC and Electric to install security lights and landscape lighting will protect you against burglars and critters while simultaneously creating an inviting entertainment area and environment.
