Types Of Security Lighting

It’s broadly accepted that there are four kinds of security lighting (continuous, standby, movable and emergency) though there are many choices and variations on how to implement each type but here are the main actual light choices themselves.

  • Flood Lights - These are the most common. A series of fixed lights are arranged to flood an area with light when it’s dark. The cones of light usually overlap 50 percent so that if one light fails the surrounding lights will compensate.
  • Motion-Activated Lights - These are now a very common and affordable part of residential and business security lighting. Continuous lighting is not always the most effective, motion-activated lights can catch an intruder off guard and startling them to think twice before approaching.
  • High-Intensity Discharge (HID) - These are a better option than floodlights for larger areas of land or property. Generally intended for commercial use but are great for larger homes too.
  • Exterior Soffit Lights - These are generally installed in the overhangs above doorways and inside porches. Generally, they allow you to see the door more easily and get inside quicker and remove shadows that intruders can hide in.
  • Coach Lights - Usually small lights mounted alongside pathways and drives. Very aesthetically pleasing while being practical and adding an extra layer of security.

Most of the lights above can be LED lights, meaning that they are incredibly energy efficient, and more reliable and newer models also have much-improved performance in the cold.

Benefits Of Security Lighting

Like any home improvement, security lights will add value to your home, but also there are other benefits both from a security perspective and a practical one:

  • Heightens Overall Awareness
  • Increases Security And Deters Intruders
  • Increases Your Property Value
  • Adds Extra Practical Safety With Better Visibility
  • Enhances The Aesthetic Appeal

Set And Forget

Horsell Electrical can adapt your existing security lights to become set and forget, meaning they can just be left on all the time with sensors reacting to the amount of light during the year. By installing sunset switches we can make your lights automatic so you don't have to set sometimes problematic timers or remember to turn them on manually. They can be adjusted to suit the timing you require and can also work with motion sensors too.

Smart home systems can also control your home’s security and regular lighting which is great when you are away as your home will appear occupied.
