Advantages of motion lighting

There are a number of advantages to installing and using motion lighting in any property. But the two largest advantages include:

  • saving electricty
  • and, safety and security

Saving electricity with motion lighting

In any setting, it is inevitable that lights will be left on, even when they aren’t needed, or the room isn’t in use. This is true in industrial environments, where high bay LEDS can be left on overnight, student accommodation, where stairwell and corridor lights will be left on, and commercial properties too. This can seriously waste electricity, and leave you paying a much higher electricity bill than is really necessary. But with motion lighting, you wont need to worry again. That’s because the lights will automatically turn on when motion is detected, and turn off again once the last person has left the room.

Safety and Security

Because of the way motion lights work, they illuminate a space as soon as a person enters it. So on your corridors and stairwells, these lights can provide peace of ind for employees or tenants, and help to keep people safe from slips, trips and falls.

At the same time, this type of lighting can be used for security lighting outside, to illuminate any potential criminals, and lower the risk of crime.
