Choosing security lighting this Autumn

For any property, in any area, security lighting can help to keep you safe, and protect your building. Whether its a school or university building, a construction or industrial site, or even a commercial property, security lighting can bring a range of advantages.

What are the different options for security lighting?

Depending on the size of your property, your location, and your outdoor space, different security lighting options will be more suitable. You can consider:

  • Wall mounted security lighting- this is security lighting that is mounted high on the perimeter walls of your property. For the most effective results, you should consider making sure this is motion sensitive, as it will then be activated by motion, and turn off afterwards. This can be much more energy efficient than constant security lighting.
  • Free standing security lighting or bollards- this type of security lighting involves free standing bollards that can illuminate large areas. Again, these can be activated by movement, to deter crime, and keep employees/tenants safe. These are often more effective for large outdoor spaces, like car parks, or industrial or construction spaces, as the light can cover a wider area.
  • Moving security lighting- this type of lighting is triggered by motion, but it will also move to follow the detected motion. This can be a very effective way to deter crime and improve safety.
