Outdoor Lighting - Showcase your Home at Night!


Outdoor lighting

A great way to showcase your home at night and to create security is through landscape lighting. The yard doesn't have to be minimally lit nor blasted with harsh light. Security lighting helps prevent vandalism and crime and lets you see what's going on.

Try motion detectors and infrared sensors to deter intruders as well as provide security light when you need it. Add decorative fixtures outside to accent a particular object or area, and create mood lighting by choosing fixtures that create uplighting, downlighting and backlighting.

Finding your way through the world of outside lighting can be daunting, let's simplify.

Before you decide what fixtures you're going to use outside, you'll need to have an energy source.

The 4-most commonly used sources of power for residential exterior lighting are:

1) Solar lights
2) Low voltage, 12volt current
3) Line voltage, 120volt current

Without the need for a transformer, wire, or cables, solar lights are the easiest of all outdoor lights to install. They have also gotten much better in recent years and now provide brighter illumination and dependability.
