Types of security lighting
There are two main types of of sensor lights that you can install on your property.
- Flood Lights: These types of lights are good from around entry points to the home such as above the garage, front door and back door. They can also be good at lighting large areas such as the backyard and side pathway
- Decorative Lights: These are typically used to light pathways and garden beds around the outside of the home. They are only dull glowing but allow enough light to be able to see the immediate area.
Things to watch
When you have security lighting it is very visible during the day when it isn't operational. Some thieves can take this time to tilt the sensors upwards or turn the lights outwards in order to not be see in the night. It is always a good idea to have a general check of your lights and sensors once in a while.
