Solar powered outdoor lighting makes practical sense. Linking sun-energized voltaic cells to lights for the outdoors is becoming a more and more common practice. The Consortium for Solar Lighting is working toward a series of recommendations to link together the best practices for solar-powered lighting. In particular, the Consortium seeks to identify the safety and long-term capability of commercial solar lighting systems.
Motion lights turn on when people are around. It would be a good idea though to make sure that your light fixtures are able to sense motion from far away. It would be difficult to move around if your lights only turn on when you are directly under or beside it. If you are not very keen on accent lighting, motion sensor outdoor lighting is the appropriate kind of lighting for you. You can keep safe with motion lighting while helping conserve and save the environment.
The first thing you need to consider when developing an outdoor lighting scheme is safety. The pathways and the doorways need to be properly illuminated in order to prevent any unexpected stumbles. Properly lit entrance ways including any back alleys that might border your property also increase your level of personal safety. A good rule of thumb is to have at least 60-80 watts of light at every outside door, set of outside steps, or any other place that you might want to go to at night ie alleys or garbage bin areas.
You may not have noticed it but some outdoor lights do tend to shine in all directions. This can effectively diminish the appearance of the stars at night. The glare from night lights can also be a disturbance to neighbors who want to relax in a more subdued atmosphere.
