When you think of security lighting, you probably think of ridiculously bright, glaring flood lights. Security lighting can be so much more than that! Done right, outdoor security lighting adds ambiance and beauty to a home’s exterior décor while still providing security. If you are looking to add beautiful touches to your nighttime landscaping while also improving outdoor security, there’s no better way to achieve your goals than having professionally installed landscape lights.
Security and Landscape lighting is one of the best ways to deter criminal behavior around your home. Strategically placed outdoor lights can help deter crime, as many thieves prefer to disguise their efforts in darkness. Landscape Lighting Guru offers a variety of landscape and outdoor security lighting solutions that will help protect your property while adding beauty to your outdoor spaces.
In order for security lights to be the most effective, your outdoor lighting plan should include lighting in places that will most effectively light up the most vulnerable parts of your home. Here are the best places to place outdoor security lights for peak effectiveness.
- Light Up Entrances – Criminals typically look for easy access into a home through doors and windows. Placing security lights near entrances will help you avoid attacks and break-ins, and also help you spot danger before it strikes.
- Keep Garage Well Lit – Garage and storage sheds are popular targets for thieves because higher-end merchandise – such as bikes or canoes – tend to be found in them and they are unlikely to run into people in those areas. Keeping your garage or storage shed well let will deter burglars from even attempting to approach them.
- Remove Blind Spots – Corners of your home, wide open yards, and gardens create excellent hiding places for thieves. That’s because most people don’t think about lighting these areas up. Make sure that you place lights around pools, gardens, and any other unlit areas of the front and backyard so that the light chases away any shadowy areas.
At Landscape Lighting Guru, we don’t believe in cookie-cutter lighting kits and one-size-fits-all designs. We focus on designing the perfect lighting system for your specific needs and to best enhance your home and property. When properly done, landscape lighting can boost the nighttime curb appeal and increase the security of your home and property!
