Landscape and Security Lighting Installation
Landscape and Security Lighting Installation For Greater Lynchburg
Professionally installed outdoor lighting provides many benefits. It’s well known that criminals are on the lookout for properties that are poorly lit and offer the cover of darkness. Good lighting is an effective deterrent to unwanted visitors. In addition, having sufficient lighting near entryways and sidewalks creates safe passage around the home, reducing the risk of accidents. Outdoor lighting also creates curb appeal by enhancing the landscaping and natural features of your property.
Flood Lights With Motion Detection
For garages and doorways, dual floodlights with motion detectors installed around the home provide excellent coverage and security.
To illuminate pathways and driveways as well as provide ambiance around the home, low intensity lighting connected to a timer or photocells that turn the lights on when the sun goes down are an ideal choice. Depending on the amount of tree cover and sun exposure, solar power may be sufficient to power the lights overnight.
LED Security Lighting
LEDs have become the standard for outdoor security and safety lighting. Offering compact size, LEDs can be adjusted to provide high or low intensity illumination and are less expensive to operate than conventional bulbs. The average LED will last last between 50,000 to 100,000 hours.
Switching to LEDs can result in a 60-75% improvement in overall energy efficiency. LEDs are ideal for outdoor conditions because they can withstand extreme temperature swings and typically are encased in durable epoxy, rather than covered with fragile glass or plastic.
Smart Outdoor Lighting
By connecting your smart devices to your landscape lighting you can gain greater control over the timing, intensity and color of your lighting to meet your exact needs. Lighting systems like the Philips Hue® can be controlled from your smartphone or digital assistant.
In addition, some porch light fixtures can be purchased with built-in cameras, providing an additional level of security by allowing you to monitor your property when you’re away from home and keep an eye out for deliveries.
