Get Security Lighting to Protect Your Home
Most home owners are concerned about securing their homes so that their families and property are kept safe. Today, there are many ways of doing so. Although there are expensive and high profile security alarm systems, if you don’t want these sophisticated devices then you can opt to install security lighting in your home.
There are some home owners who are reluctant to get lighting security systems because they think that it will just increase their energy bills and they don’t want to be disturbed by its brightness at night. What is great about modern lighting security systems is that it is energy efficiency since it is only when it senses someone approaching the house that it lights up. These lights operate through two kinds of sensors including infrared sensors and microwave sensors.
When you install infrared lighting security, the light is triggered on when warm objects such as a person or a car is sensed. On the other hand, the microwave sensor sends out high frequency radio waves which can detect objects within their range since the energy from the objects breaks down the radio waves. So, once the radio wave is broken, the light is turned on.
The good thing is that the lights will not be turned on very long because after some time, for both sensors, the lights will then turn off. The sudden turning on of the lights will surely scare intruders and since it will turn off then it will save you energy. These security lights only turn on when the sensors trigger them and at no other time will they be turned on, and so this will not add a significant amount to your energy consumption.
Automatic security lights can be installed for everyday use. This is useful when your family members drive home at night and the lights will automatically turn on when the sensors detect the car. The cost of lighting security systems is lower than any other type of security systems.
There are many types of home security lighting. Even from the morning and throughout the day, there are security systems which you can use. Since it includes daytime security, the lighting system has to be kept on at all times. But since lights are on the whole day, then you can expect to have high energy costs from this type of security.
There are also motion-activated flood lights that can protect your home. They use motion sensors and the lights turn on whenever it senses any motion. With this motion sensor you can save cost and it can alert everyone about an intrusion.
Lighting security systems only shine brightly when they detect motion; otherwise, they are on low power. This security lighting is called ‘hi-lo’ lighting.
Electrical experts and technicians have solutions for all kinds of security lighting system installation. They also offer reasonable prices for maintenance and repair of your lighting security systems.
