Security lighting

Good lighting can be an excellent deterrent against burglary, but the right lighting has to fit the right circumstances.

Security lights that operate by heat and movement sensors, are often activated by small animals, so can increase the fear of crime. They can be a useful addition to the front of a house, so that the lights are activated when visitors approach the front door or the householder is returning home at night.

The more appropriate option for the rear of a property is a low wattage security light that activates by photoelectric cell, automatically switching on as it gets dark at night and switching off as it gets light in the morning. They are commonly referred to as 'dusk until dawn' security lights.
