Security Lighting Options For Your Property

Posted on December 10th, 2018 by Jupiter Tequesta

It is an excellent idea to have outdoor security lighting at a home in Florida. There are numerous benefits from having outdoor lights, including:

  • Making it easier to see in the dark
  • Avoiding vehicular accidents on your property
  • Preventing vandalism
  • Avoiding theft of valuable objects from the lawns
  • Preventing a home invasion
  • Keeping wild animals away from a property
  • Featuring the architecture of a home
  • Making it easier to entertain in the evening
  • Keeping flying insects away from the lawns
  • Decorative effects for the holidays

The main reason for the installation of outdoor lights is for security purposes, and there are several places where experts recommend the placement of security lights, including:

  • Over a garage’s door to avoid an accident or a break-in
  • Above windows to prevent vandalism or break-ins
  • Near swimming pools to prevent falling into the water
  • Near an air conditioner to prevent theft
  • Above the front, side and back doors of a home
  • Near porches and decks
  • Along a driveway or sidewalks
  • Next to outbuildings such as storage or garden sheds
  • Near to doghouses
  • Around shrubs, trees or flowers
  • In recreational areas such as outdoor kitchens or a gazebo

The proper placement of security lights can protect a home’s residents and a property, but make sure to install the lighting systems at the correct height to prevent vandalism while also having easy access to the items to change the bulbs.

Different Types of Outdoor Lighting

It is possible to find hundreds of types of outdoor lights that are available in different sizes and styles. There are outdoor lights that are powered by electrical wires, solar energy, batteries or natural gas. Homeowners can use one or more types of power sources for outdoor lighting to ensure that a family and a property are safer during different types of weather conditions such as severe thunderstorms or extended heat waves.

Some of the types of outdoor lights that are recommended for a home include:

  • Floodlights – using bulbs that emit light that will cover a larger area
  • Spotlights – have bulbs that illuminate smaller areas
  • Sconces – plain or decorative light fixtures attached to buildings or fences
  • Lanterns – larger light fixtures that are often decorative
  • Overhead fixtures – suitable for attaching to the ceiling on a porch
  • Post lights – often installed along a driveway
  • Spike lights – inexpensive solar lights that are inserted into the soil
