There are many types of outdoor lights that you can use in a variety of ways. One of these types is called uplighting. This is where your fixtures are aimed upwards to accent and draw attention to specific areas of your home. Another type is downlighting. This type of lighting is used for putting a spotlight feature on certain designated areas around your home.
Security features around the home in this day and age is a must whether you are an elderly couple, a single person, or a family. One of the main key aspects of security in the home is lighting. Most criminal acts happen at nighttime as it is harder to see the attackers or burglars and so they have more of a chance of getting away unseen. Having appropriate outdoor lighting will make a huge difference to how secure your home is and how safe you and your family will feel. Here is a look at some outdoor lighting options you can choose from to keep your home secure.
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.
