Security Lighting Options To Keep Your Holidays Safe
Did you know the FBI estimates that 400,000 burglaries occur each year during the holidays? The reason for this is obvious: A lot of people are purchasing expensive gifts and have more cash in their homes. At the same time, between holiday shopping and festivities, a lot of us are away more often, too. And all of this combined makes local New Jersey homes prime targets for burglars, porch pirates, and other criminals. Wave Electric Company gives security lighting options to keep your holidays safe against theft, intruders and injury caused by poor visibility.
Using Lighting To Enhance Your Home Security
That’s why to really enjoy the holidays, you need to be sure that your loved ones, your home, and your possessions are safe. And while a home security system with an alarm is important, it’s also critical to understand the vital role that security lighting can play. According to experts, well-chosen lighting can deter criminals from targeting your home. The following security lighting options can help keep your holidays safe:
- Motion-Activated Door Lighting: Burglars typically enter homes in a manner that draws the least amount of attention: through the door. If your porch isn’t well-lit, it’s easy for them to pick the lock on your door or smash a window and unbolt the door from the inside without being noticed. However, if you install motion-activated door lighting by all your exterior doors, the lights will turn on as soon as somebody approaches. And while that will likely make your guests feel welcomed, it will scare most burglars away.
- Driveway Lighting Sensors: Just like motion-activated door lighting, driveway lighting sensors turn on the exterior lights as soon as a car pulls into your driveway. It’s great when you come home after a fun family dinner—but it’s not so great if you’re a burglar looking to hide a getaway vehicle.
- Automatic Lighting Timers: Install automatic timers on your indoor, outdoor, and holiday lights so they automatically turn on and off, even when you’re not at home. Criminals will literally stake out a home until they believe the owner isn’t there—but if the lights come on, they have no way of knowing you’re not in. This security lighting option is particularly useful if you regularly come home after dark or if you’re planning to travel during the holidays.
- Whole-Property Floodlight: This type of lighting floods the exterior of your entire property with light with one single switch. So, if you hear something suspicious outside, all you have to do is turn on the floodlight to scare the bad guys away!
Good Lighting Reinforces Personal Safety
In addition to providing security, good lighting also enhances safety. This is especially important when it’s cold out, as ice and snow can make the ground slippery and dangerous. Poor visibility can lead to slips and falls by yourself or your visitors. So don’t risk injury this holiday season – Wave Electric will light the way to a safer, brighter home.
