Outdoor lighting is great for enhancing your home's security. That has
been proven in survey after survey of police home security experts and burglars!
There are 3 different security lighting techniques –
1. Dusk to Dawn
This is the oldest technique. The theory is that a brightly lit home discourages
a would-be burglar because the lights make it hard to disguise their actions.
The burglar would presumably choose to break into a dark house instead of a
Dusk to Dawn lighting requires the use of dusk to dawn photocell
controls or lights with built in photocells such as yard
lights or mini-wallpacks.
The downside to dusk to dawn lighting is that you are burning lights all night
every night. The energy cost and lamp replacement costs can be very high. Also,
it can be argued that constantly lit properties give no indication to neighbors
or passers by of intrusion or unwanted activity.
They always look the same.
2. Imagine a burglar approaching the home of an attended victim. While still
50 feet away, flood lights go on -- directly in their eyes. Is someone at home?
Has the burglar been seen? Obviously, a very effective crime deterrent!
lighting has become extremely popular due to its many benefits—security,
convenience and low cost. It’s convenient because lights go on when you need
them, off when you don’t. It’s low cost because lights are only on when needed
(saving energy most of the night) and lamps last much longer, saving replacement

movement. The result is a welcoming glow from your outdoor lighting all night
