Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting can be a very exciting way of decorating the exterior of your home. The location and the amount of light that you will choose will give your property the desired appearance. There are diverse fixtures that can help you achieve any type of decor. However, when choosing your decor do not forget that security and safety must be one of the main priorities.

You can always combine any of your fixtures with a timer or photo-cell to enhance the living look and to provide a peace of mind when you are away from your residence. Furthermore you can always choose a motion- detector light with a sensor for the front and back of your house to ensure adequate light for your guests and intruders! Be sure to place the sensor far from any bushes or trees for some sensors are very fragile and could be triggered by a simple movement. For your outdoor lighting the range of the sensor will depend on your needs, a sensor with a small range will be perfect for the front and back doors. Consider using quartz halogen motion lighting or floodlighting to save energy. Make sure to change the light bulbs of any of your outdoor lighting before any major change in weather for it is important to ensure that the quality of illumination will always be consistent. Preventative measures are very important when mounting an outdoor light so before starting any project be sure to read the instruction manuals that are included with your lights to lower the probability of accidents.
