Stunning outdoor lighting illuminates your property, highlights critical aspects of your home's architecture, and creates the perfect atmosphere for any occasion. But an outdoor lighting system does so much more than beautify your home. Proper lighting will add an extra layer of security and deter any potential criminals. Keep reading to learn how exterior lighting and landscape lighting will protect your home in the Buffalo to Clarence, NY area.
Schedule your lighting to automatically turn on and off at critical times during the day based on your unique and complex routines for truly hands-free control. For example, set your lights to turn on at 6 AM on the weekdays when you and your kids leave for work and early morning track practice, then have them turn off half an hour later when the sun rises. Program them to turn on again 30 minutes before sunset so that your pathway and front porch are lighted, making it easy for you to safely unlock the door when you get home. Leave the porch lights on for when the kids get home from after-school activities at around 8 PM. They can stay on until you go to bed at 10:30 PM, at which time they will slowly dim. Never worry about turning your lights on and off again, and gain peace of mind knowing that you are saving energy by not accidentally leaving them on.
Another way to automate your landscape lighting is to connect the system to motion sensors that trigger the lights when movement is detected. Instead of searching for a flashlight when your dog needs to go out at night, open the door and watch as the porch lights turn on automatically. As your puppy sniffs around different areas of the backyard, the lights in corresponding areas will turn on, allowing you to see where your pet is at all times.
Much like scheduling your lighting, motion sensors also add an extra layer of security to unlocking your door when you get home after dark. Your pathway and porch lights will turn on when you pull into the driveway. Finally, motion sensor lighting acts as a deterrent to potential intruders. Anytime someone approaches your house, bright floodlights in the yard will turn on, chasing off whoever is lurking.
Summer is almost here, and traveling is starting to pick up. If you plan to go on vacation, you can use your outdoor lighting to create the illusion that you are still at home. Using a home automation system, turn your lights to "Vacation Mode" so that they turn on and off automatically. Potential criminals will be discouraged from robbing your home if they believe someone is inside. Partner this with an innovative home security system that allows you to check the status of your home on a smart device of your choice no matter where you are in the world. Now you can enjoy your vacation knowing your property is protected.
