Increasing security lighting is the first step for homeowners to keep their properties safe from harmful intruders. Statistics show that thieves have bypassed targets that are hard to find but not detectable. A well-designed security lighting system allows looters to reconsider before entering your home. This guide will show you how to create an effective and economical LED security lighting system for your home or business.
Use much smaller light sources instead of fewer, more powerful light sources
Large and powerful floodlights are great for open spaces, but if there are obstructions on your property (such as buildings and trees), they can sometimes leave shadows. Combining LED floodlights, area lighting, and wall packs can reduce shadows and blind spots that intruders can use to hide.
Provide high light and distant places
It is important to make it difficult for thieves to tamper with your security system. Many thieves plan on robbing for a few weeks, and finding a way to turn off security lights is usually a priority. If an intruder can render the system useless, even the best security lighting can become useless. Keeping the light high and out of reach makes it difficult to tamper with the system. Positioning the light higher will also soften the light for a pleasant appearance and increase coverage.
Use motion detector lights
Motion detector lamps are an effective way to deter intruders. Thieves are on the brink of a robbery, and cops passing by is often enough to scare them away. A good combination of LED spotlights and motion detector lights will keep intruders away from your property and deter those who choose to enter.
Focus on entry and exit
Most criminals will look for targets that can be found invisible at night. Ensuring that all entrances and exits are properly covered can prevent criminals from planning robberies in your hotel.
Efficiency: LED lamps have extraordinary efficiency and are more cost-effective in the long run. Compared to the same incandescent lamp, the power consumption of LED lamps is reduced by 90%. This is also important if the safety lights are forced to run on the backup generator. Less energy consumption means that your lamp will last longer with limited power.
