Where should light fixtures be placed to increase my home security?
Homeowners may neglect the importance of outside lighting when it comes to home security. However, outside lighting can increase a home’s overall security. Homeowners should test out several placements of where their light fixtures should be installed. Essentially, all entry points should be well lit including garages. This means all sides of a house should have ample lighting which can help increase the visibility of any potential threats. Homeowners should check how their lights illuminate the outside of their house from inside. If a house does not have enough light fixtures around their home to illuminate the outside of their home, this could cause potential blind spots. This could allow an intruder to be unseen. Home owners should use LED light bulbs because they do not burn out and consumes less energy then other types of lights. Ultimately, homeowners should have multiple light fixtures to increase outside visibility and prevent intruders from breaking in.
Should my security lights have automatic controls and motion detectors?
Automatic controls make security lights more effective. It is extremely effective as it can allow individuals to immediately turn on their outside lighting even when they are not home when it turns dark outside.
