Lighting student accommodation safely and effectively is a priority for many landlords and property developers. From halls of residence, to a block of student flats, or even one student house, the lighting requirements will be different for each scenario. But what will be useful for all of these properties is motion lighting. Whether its external security lighting activated by motion sensors, or motion lighting for corridors and stairs, this type of lighting can be very effective.

Advantages of motion lighting for student accommodation
So why should you choose motion lighting for student accommodation? Well, motion lighting can bring a range of advantages. These include:
- Saving money- because motion lighting is only activated when motion is detected, you could save money on your energy bills. In communal areas of the student accommodation property, it is highly likely that the lights will be left on at all times. This can cause your electricity bill to skyrocket. Installing motion lighting instead can solve this problem, as the light will be activated when the room is in use, and will automatically turn off when not. So you wont have to pay to light an empty room.
- Safety- motion lighting can be used to keep students safe. This works on the stairs or corridors by illuminating areas when people are using them, preventing slips, trips or falls. It can also be applied externally, as security lighting to deter criminals and illuminate outdoor areas.
