The Importance of Proper Lighting

You may not always think of the lighting in your home as a safety feature, but both proper interior and exterior lighting are extremely important. While interior lighting will help keep you safe from accidentally hurting yourself, exterior lighting can help keep you home safe from intruders.

Exterior security lights do not have to be excessive. In fact, it is better to use subtle security lighting to properly illuminate the exterior of your home without being too bright. This way, you maintain proper aesthetics while deterring intruders from trying to gain access to your home.

One popular method of exterior lighting comes in the form of motion detectors. These lights turn on when motion is detected, allowing you to leave them off for the majority of the time. These will deter intruders and use very little energy. When you get home from work they will simply turn on, allowing you to safely get into your home.
