Every 15.4 seconds, a home is burglarized in the United States. An effective outdoor lighting plan not only makes your property safer for you to access at night, it can prevent vandalism, break-ins and other safety concerns. Exterior security lighting is one of the fastest, easiest and most effective ways you can make your Columbus home safer.

  1. Because burglars and vandals don’t want to be seen, they are more likely to pass up a house with good security lighting than try their luck.
  2. Slips and falls are more common at night, when it can be difficult or even impossible to see your path. Adequate outdoor lighting will provide clear illumination when you must go outside, preventing missteps and other accidents.
  3. Motion-activated security lighting provides instantaneous light whenever motion is detected outside your home. These lights can alert you to the presence of animals, family members or intruders, whether you are inside or outside your home.

If you’re concerned about the ongoing cost of lighting your home’s exterior, there are many options your electrician can offer to reduce the amount of power consumed.

  • Motion-activated lights provide light only when motion is present. A motion sensor will automatically activate the lights you need only while you need them, then turn off the lights to conserve energy when you leave.
  • Timers are a great way to specify exactly how long you want to use your outdoor lights. When you use a timer, you won’t need to remember to turn your lighting on or worry about forgetting to turn the lights off when they are no longer needed.
  • Outdoor lighting is available with power-saving bulb options, including LEDs, which use less electricity and far outlast traditional bulbs. Integrating these lighting options into your home’s exterior and landscape lighting can help you save money, lower your home’s power usage and reduce the amount of waste going into local landfills.
