Updated: May 5, 2021

Perpetrators Cannot Hide if lights shine on them

Home Security Lighting is often overlooked as one of the most important aspects of home and house security.

The major benefit that home security lighting has, is that it helps to prevent and not just protect against intruders and vandals.

Not only prevents intruders from wanting to hang around, but also there is an advantage of exposing anybody who may be lurking on the property at night.

In this day and age with a bad economy, Thieves are looking even harder for ways to break in and steal. A well lit home protects your home and the people in it.


The Right Installation Professionals

The Ultimate Handyman takes many aspects in consideration when installing any home security lighting. We consider the neighboring property, hiding spots, alternative entrances, porches, driveways and other access points.

It is imperative that the lighting used is not too bright and does not illuminate over to other peoples boundaries causing complaints.

The Ultimate Handyman also takes in consideration the careful installation of motion sensors, which will not activate lights accidentally when pointed at vegetation that moves with the wind.

There are on the market today many different types of security lighting available, some of the products that are available include porch lighting, halogen floodlights, infra red detection lights and motion sensor lighting.

Buy the lights that you like and book an appointment for us to plan and install these fixtures.


Considerations For Sensors Of Motion Detection

The Porch lighting is a popular form of security lighting and is the preferred choice for many households with a porch in it!

The basics behind any security lighting is that it should provide a permanent source of light at very low wattage to come on and off from dawn to dusk periods, or the lighting should be controlled by some sort of detector, so will automatically turn the lights on by human movement.

This is an essential element of the product; you can still obtain manual light switches, however the automatic ones also offer the protection for your property when you are away from home on business or vacations.

Another form of home security lighting that is becoming more popular with home owners are the LED floodlights with infra red signatures.

The basis behind these lights, is that they are tripped by motion detection of the body heat signature of individuals entering the perimeter covered by the sensors.

For example if an intruder was in your property, then the lighting would be activated, specifically when any movement occurred in the areas covered by the sensors, but its would not activate when branches move with the wind.

These lights also use PIR sensors, these stop the lighting being tripped by small animals, birds or bats during the night.

It is very important that the lighting is configured correctly and is not illuminating any of your neighbors’ gardens or homes. They can get mad at you.
