The safety of our homes and businesses is priority number one. Fortunately, security lighting is a simple yet effective deterrent against unwanted intruders. A well-lit property can significantly reduce the risk of break-ins and vandalism.

Security Lighting 101: How to Deter Unwanted Intruders

Here are our recommendations for strategic placement of security lighting for maximum protection of your property.

  • Visibility. Intruders thrive in the shadows, where their actions can go unnoticed. Effective security lighting eliminates dark corners and hidden spaces, making it difficult for intruders to approach your property unnoticed. Illuminate all entry and exit points to deter potential intruders and identify individuals coming in and out of the premises safely.
  • Deterrence. The mere presence of security lighting can deter criminals. When faced with a well-lit property, the risks of being caught are higher, making your home or business a less attractive target. These are potential hiding spots for intruders. Adequate lighting in such areas minimizes hiding spots. Intruders often use windows to access properties. Lighting these areas can deter unauthorized access.
  • Identification. Security lighting aids in the identification of individuals approaching your property. Coupled with security cameras, effective lighting can provide clear imagery, crucial for identification in the event of a security breach. Ensure paths and driveways are well-lit to prevent trip hazards and deter potential intruders from approaching. Often overlooked, garages and sheds can be attractive to intruders. Ensure they are well-lit to prevent unauthorized access.
