Benefits of security lighting

Security sensor lighting provides a cost-effective safety measure for your home or business. As they only turn on when movement is detected the lights cost very little to use. They can also be a great way to help you and the family to find the way to the front door, and around your property at night.

Security lighting is also a deterrent for would-be thieves. Sensor lighting, as well as surveillance cameras and alarm systems, can reduce your home and contents insurance in some instances.

Did you know: Homes with effective security lighting are less likely to be broken into due the fact people who break into homes prefer to work in the cover of darkness.

What to look for in LED security lights?

Any light is better than no light at all, but there are a few important factors to consider when you’re looking at security lighting.

  • How far from the fixture will it light up your property?
  • What type of lighting to use?
  • What type of light works best to light the areas you want?
Our electricians can help with expert advice on choosing the right lights for your property.

Targeted outdoor lighting

You don’t necessarily need to light up your entire yard. You may find you only need to light up your front porch. The lumens (or brightness) of your lighting should vary depending on where it is located.

The light above your front door should illuminate the porch and possibly some of the garden or path. Note that each bulb is rated by the number of lumens they produce. The more lumens a bulb has means the more light it produces.

Setting the motion sensor

When having your security lighting installed you also have to factor in how far away from the motion sensor will it stop picking up movement. The ideal motion sensor range for an open area security light is at least 40 feet. This is to ensure your lights won’t come on when your neighbours are putting out their bins.
