Security Lighting Made Easy!
[Agency Name] recommends factoring in these strategies when choosing and installing your home security lighting:
Security Lighting Tip #1: Ensure That They Are Installed Out of Reach
A common mistake people make when installing their security lights is where they place them. If your lights are installed within reach, it will be easy for intruders to tamper with them. Lights should be installed over 2.5m or 8ft from the ground or along your roof lining.
Security Lighting Tip #2: Ensure All Entrances to Your Home Are Well-Lit
It is of utmost important that all of your home’s main points of entry (front, back and garage doors) are well-lit for optimal security. With adequate lighting, you can easily evaluate your surroundings when arriving home at night to be sure that no intruders are lurking in the shadows. Having well-lit entrances will also minimize the amount of time you spend getting through the door. We also advise lighting landscaping features, such as bushes and fountains, that could impede an intruder by blocking them.
Security Lighting Tip #3: Get Motion Sensor Lights
These lights not only save energy, but the element of surprise they bring can cause even more disruption for the would-be intruders. An intruder entering your property will be caught off-guard when they are suddenly illuminated, and become visible. In such scenario, most intruders will be caught unaware and flee your property.
