Protect your home with outdoor security lighting and flood lights.
Advantages of outdoor security lights.
Enjoy time at home knowing it’s protected, day and night, with help from security and flood lights. Security lighting is a common household upgrade because it’s a relatively simple security boost, giving you peace of mind both when you’re home or when you’re away traveling. All security lights and flood lights cast a bright, wide light and turn on when they’re triggered, whether that’s by a timer or because the lights have an outdoor motion sensor. The lights will go off after some time, so you don’t have to worry about the bright light shining all night long. Some flood lights provide video footage, too, just like security cameras and surveillance, plus they’re easy to install and relatively inexpensive compared to other house upgrades.
Where to put your outdoor lights.
Before you decide on security lighting, you’ll want to walk around the perimeter of your home and determine which places need the most light output and protection. You may want an outdoor spotlight on patio furniture and outdoor decor, for example, or lights positioned in the corners of your garage to light up your driveway and path. You can also enjoy multi-use out of security lights, as they can provide primary light for your patio or doorway. These are great lights to have around flower beds, trees and plants, or near the pool to provide a lit path for you around obstacles. Security lights, depending on their fixtures, can be placed high, like ceiling mount security lights, or low to the ground to shine a light directly on your sidewalk or path. Guests will also appreciate security lights with motion sensors if they stop by your house before your lights are on.
What kind of security lights do you need?
A great addition to your smart home security system, flood lights are available in a wide range of technologies, designs and features, with many featuring the smart technology you trust. It's often easy to install flood lights that are wire-free or battery powered — you won’t feel at all limited to the placement of your lighting thanks to this flexible design. LED security lighting may be something to consider if you want a long-lasting, sustainable bulb.
