The traditional image of security lighting is the floodlight that uses a passive infra red to
turn on the light if movement is detected. This is a system that does work very well but can have many problems
with false activations caused by animals or wind. Also the actual cost of electricity used to illuminate the
light is very high compared to other types of security lighting that are available.
Our personal preference is a low energy type light that comes on at dusk as the light fades
and stays on throughout the night until it begins to become light again in the morning. We feel there are many more
advantages to this type of security lighting and just from a cost of electricity used is a much cheaper option over
the longer term. There is also a lot less chance of someone approaching a property that is already illuminated than
one that is in darkness.
There are also security lighting systems available that will sound a buzzer inside and light up
a warning LED on a control panel to let you know which sensor is detecting movement, this can be operational 24
hours a day and will not illuminate the lighting during the daytime.
We understand that every property is different and that everybody has their own view on what
they would like and how they would like it to work so we would always try and visit a property to see what would be
the best type of lighting for that particular installation.
