Both homes and businesses often have an outdoor security light. This is a great way to keep your employees and property safe.

High impact lights positioned around the doors and perimeters of your property will light up any would be intruder, and deter crime. But is this energy efficient?
Energy Efficient Security Lighting
When it comes to your security lighting, you should opt for LED lights. These last a lot linger than your standard fluorescent lights, and they are a lot more energy efficient. In fact, they can use around 30 times less electricity than a standard fluorescent light!
In addition, your security lighting doesn’t need to be on all the time. By using sensors that detect movement, they can turn themselves on and off as necessary. This means that they wont use electricity unnecessarily.
