One of the most important aspects of any outdoor lighting system is the security aspect. Proper exterior lighting helps make a home welcoming and friendly while discouraging unwelcome intruders from lingering. Homes without security measures, such as alarms and outdoor lighting, are up to 300% more likely to be vandalized.
Before and after pictures are perhaps the most effective way to show the importance an outdoor lighting system can have on the overall security of a home. It's possible to have beautiful security lighting that protects your property and your family.Here are a few key aspects to residential security lighting:
- Adequately lighting paths and steps: this will keep homeowners and guests safer at night by preventing trips and falls
