The Benefits of Having Security Lighting Installed by a Professional Electrician

If you’re looking for a good way to protect your home or business you should consider security lighting. While it seems like a pretty low-tech solution to keeping riff-raff away from what matters to you, it’s actually a pretty efficient way to protect what’s yours. Security lighting makes homes and businesses less desirable to rob or bother with. Criminals don’t like being visible, and they will go to darker locations on the street nearly every time. If you want to cut down the level of crime on your home or business think about having security lighting installed by a professional electrician so that you can sleep better at night.

How Security Lighting Works

Security lighting is pretty simple in nature, but pretty powerful with how it affects people. A bright light is mounted onto a section of your building and when someone walks in front of the motion sensor positioned right below the light, the light will kick on for a pre-determined length of time, making it very obvious that movement occurred in the area. Even if nobody else is around it can be a heart-thumping experience for a criminal.

Different Light Considerations

There are different options for security lighting installed by a professional electrician. It’s important to consider all your different options before deciding on the one that you want to use oat your business or home. Think about things like how bright the lights are, how expensive the bulbs are and what the range is on the sensors themselves. Only after considering all these different factors will you be able to pick out a set of lights that’s going to meet your need properly.

Add in a Camera System

If you really want to protect your business as much as possible you should add in a video camera system as well as the lighting system. This will give you the ability to see anyone that’s tampering with your business, which is especially important when you’re at home and can’t see who’s messing with your company. Cameras can be mounted right by the lights and set to kick on with motion sensors just like the lights do. If you do decide to put some cameras in, make sure that the lights take a bit longer to kick on than the cameras do. That way the cameras will capture a video of the person before they have a chance to react to a light and run away.

Why Professionally Installed?

It’s important to have security lighting installed by a professional electrician because the process usually involves working with home or business wiring. Having the process completed by a professional will ensure that it comes out looking cleaner when done, and that it functions properly. You don’t have to worry about faulty wiring or potential problems with your lighting. When you’re putting in a tool for security purposes it’s vital to make sure that it’s done right so that you get the performance you expect. Security lighting installed by a professional electrician won’t cost you as much as you expect, and you’ll enjoy the reassurance that those brilliant lights provide you with in the middle of the night.

I used Barney's Electric to update old light fixtures / install new light fixtures at my house. Barney's Electric is hands down the best electric company to hire! The technicians are so unbelievable professional, knowledgeable and helpful!! I was very pleased with the electrical services they provided and how fast they were able to come out. They absolutely take care of every customer job, LARGE or SMALL. I will call them every time I need an electrical job done.

I submitted an online request at 9pm one evening for some electrical work I needed on a newly constructed patio cover. Barney called me around 7:30am the following morning! Now that's a fast response time! The work needed to be completed asap and had to be coordinated with my builder. They coordinated perfectly with my builder's schedule. They got the work done fast. And this was all done with very short notice!  They were prompt, professional, courteous, and very informative. They even gave me free advice on a non-related issue that is going to save me hundreds of dollars. They did excellent work and cleaned up afterward! I will definitely be using them on other properties and upcoming projects in the near future.  I highly recommend Barney's Electric!
