Importance of Outdoor Security Lights
Outdoor security lights installed at strategic places in your home is a great, low-cost way to deter unwanted intruders from your home. Security lighting is not a substitute for a comprehensive home burglar alarm system, but we would highly recommend adding outdoor lighting to your property to increase security.
Installing outdoor security lights to the main entry systems and access areas of your home including your front door, back door and driveway will provide you with assurance when coming home or leaving your property with the added deterrent to unwanted visitors. If you wish to increase the security of your home in Edinburgh, we would recommend installing lights to these areas and to any darker areas of your home including fencing, garden and patio areas.
With the technology of motion detectors, lights called PIR sensors (Passive Infrared Sensors) lights are activated through movement. The sensor measures infrared light that is reflected off moving objects. This will light up dark areas providing you with some reassurance at night whether you are coming home in the dark or wish to view areas outside your house.
Our Home Outdoor Security Light Services
We can supply and install a variety of types of security lights to fit the style of your home. Security lighting comes in a variety of different formats, including:
- Decorative lights
- Remote controlled lights.
We strongly recommend getting lights that have the functionality of the PIR sensors, but if you wish to install lights that have a fixed switch, then we can also supply these. If you do not have any security lights around your home, we can supply the full package.
If you happen to have security lights which are broken or not working, or if you wish to change the look and style, then we can also supply and install lights to your requirements.
Installing Your Home Security Lights
Before installing your home security lighting, we conduct a site survey which aims to provide you with advice on the best location for these lights. The site survey will access the area of your property, taking into account all access areas to your home and vulnerable areas from which intruders can enter.
All security lighting that we supply and install includes a 12-month guarantee.
