How to Choose Security Lights for Your Home

There are a lot of different ways to add lighting for home security, and the primary characteristics of most security lighting: it's bright, it covers a large area, it comes on when triggered, and it's often mounted higher than other lights—which helps it cover a larger area.

First of all, look for fixtures that will put the light where you need it. This can range from high-mounted floodlights to (almost) low-level path lights that make walking or stair climbing more secure after dark. Porch and doorway lights, for example, serve as area lighting, decorative lighting, and security lighting all in one.

Secondly, look for fixtures and components that are made to be outside. If the fixtures will be under a roof, as porch lights usually are, then they should be made to tolerate dampness but don't have to be weatherproof. Fixtures installed on an exposed exterior wall or in any other unprotected area, such as in your yard or next to outside stairs, need to be weatherproof to last, long-term, and to be safe.

Thirdly, consider when you want the light to be on. If you want the light to come on, or to change from dim to bright, when someone is in the area, installing a motion detector can do that.

Then there's the design, or style, of the fixtures and controls. If the fixtures will be visible, you will want ones that are compatible with the style of your home, whether it is Colonial, Craftsman or Modern.

Last but not least, the controls can be replaced with timer switches to ensure that the light is always on when you want it to be. That can be especially useful for security purposes. If you're away from home overnight, the outside light will still come on and go off at its regular time, giving the appearance that someone is home.
