There’s a reason why security lighting packages are becoming so popular. As many hidden cameras have shown, drive-by thieves are sometimes incredibly bold, coming right up to a home’s front doorstep or garage area to prowl around for packages left behind by mail delivery or valuable items left outside. To ward off these types of invasions, many homeowners are turning to security packages that feature both smart cameras and smart lighting fixtures.
Prevention is Key
Of course, security cameras can do a great job of capturing important information if a theft does occur, but security lighting can help prevent a theft from happening in the first place. It’s no secret that would-be thieves are likely to move on to another target when they encounter a well-lit property. By being proactive and lighting up a home, either with motion-sensing lighting fixtures or security lights that come on automatically at dus k, homeowners can lower the risk of an unpleasant, and perhaps even dangerous scenario.
Security – Inside and Out
Security is not just for the outside of the home either. A good security light package will include mechanisms to provide indoor security lighting features that make it look as if the homeowners are present, regardless of whether they really are or not. As the summer months approach and homeowners begin to plan their summer vacations, they should ask themselves if they feel comfortable with the current security measures surrounding their home. If not, now is a great time to adding a comprehensive security plan that includes lighting up key parts of both the interior and exterior of the home.
Checking for Vulnerabilities
Homeowners should look for areas around the home where a thief could gain entrance or could have access to valuable items. Of course, a good security lighting package will include coverage for all entranceways into the home and garage, as well as any exterior building(s) such as a garden shed or barn. Large shrubbery that provides dark cover around vulnerable windows would be an ideal spot for adding some in-ground flood lights. On the surface, it may appear that in-ground lights are being used to highlight landscaping, but they serve an additional purpose by adding protection around vulnerable parts of the home.
