Exterior Lighting For Security
Aside from adding beauty and dimension to your home, there is no doubt that lighting is a highly integral and crucial factor of efficient home security.
External security lighting discourages intruders, or burglars from targeting your home, as they would get the feeling of being exposed and watched, and increase the risk of being caught. A 2007 Washington Post article reported that burglars tend to go for homes that look unoccupied. Lighting brings an element of surprise and establishes an occupancy pattern that deters burglars or dangerous individuals. Well-lighted homes have lesser chances of being robbed or attacked.
Excellent lighting designs are usually characterised by an increase in the sense of safety, good facial recognition, physical detection and minimisation of hiding spots. In all things, moderation and purpose must be considered. Over-illumination can attract unwanted attention to your house and even cause light pollution. So it’s best to keep your exterior lighting minimal.
