June 22, 2023 | Blog

Read on for more information on reliable security lighting and the benefits of strong flood lights.

What Makes A Good Security Light?

Wondering how to choose a high-quality security lighting system for your home?

Most homeowners opt for continuous lighting that is at least 700 lumens or more in order to illuminate your property effectively. For example, if you have a spacious backyard, floodlights with 1500 to 1800 lumens may be required.

Though there are standby, portable and emergency lighting systems, continuous lighting tends to be more durable and long-lasting. Installing security lights requires some strategy to get the most use out of the devices you choose. Places such as your deck, garage, patio or porch overhang are perfect.

How Do Motion Sensor Lights Work?

Interested in learning more about motion sensor systems and how they function?

Lights that switch on when movement is detected are super sensitive to heat waves. Objects that radiate warmth such as animals, people and vehicles instantly trigger motion sensors within your device and turn on the floodlights.

Some motion sensor light systems are extremely sensitive, so don’t be alarmed if they switch on out of nowhere once in a while. Large insects have been known to trigger motion lights if they fly or crawl too close to the sensor.

If you have additional questions or concerns about motion sensor lights, don’t hesitate to chat with one of our staff members as soon as possible.

The Benefits Of Flood Lights

When it comes to cost-effective, efficient security measures, there are many advantages to floodlighting. Some of the most noticeable benefits include:

  • Defending your home against critters that like to get in your trash, such as raccoons, possums and skunks
  • Generating little extra costs due to eco-friendly, energy-saving LED bulbs
  • Boosting the value of your home as an added security perk

Don’t wait until you and your family are feeling uneasy before you have floodlights installed. Connect with any of our stellar staff members to learn why security lighting is convenient and popular among homeowners today!
