Security lights fall nicely into two main categories. Those designed to welcome visitors and those designed to deter crime. An outdoor flood light with a built in PIR sensor will automatically switch on when someone approaches your door, path, driveway or property.
Security Lights For The Home
It can also assist in illuminating a dark driveway to aid parking after dark. A high power security floodlight fitted in a vulnerable area will deter unwelcome visitors after dark.
If you are considering a high power security floodlight then please bear the following in mind.
- They should be mounted at a height of at least 3m above the ground.
- The floodlight should be angled downwards to light the area directly beneath and in front.
- Avoid light spilling into neighbouring properties or onto a roadway
- Spend some time adjusting the PIR sensor in order to minimise activation by animals.
If there may be occasions when you would like your security light to be permanently on, then choose one with an override facility. This enables you to have the light on all of the time. This facility is particularly convenient during barbecues or evening get together, when it is desirable to illuminate an outside area whilst people are using it. Once the activity is over, the motion sensor can be switched back to PIR mode.
