What are the effective options for residential security lighting?

So, what are the different options available for providing exterior security lighting to your residential property? Well, there are several, including:

  • Motion activated lighting- this is activated when motion is detected and can be a great way to startle and deter any potential criminals around your property. It also means that when your tenants are returning at night, they are more likely to stay safe, in a well lit space.
  • Wall lights- wall lights that are solar powered, or run on a timer switch can be installed along any exterior walls or next to the front door. This means that whoever is approaching the house can be seen, and it can help to keep safe.
  • Manually activated lights- exterior lights that are activated by a switch from inside the property can be a good choice, as your tenants will have full control over when to use them, and the whole of your outdoor space can be illuminated when any suspicious noise is heard.
