Outdoor lighting can add beauty and drama to your home while enhancing your year-round security.  And now, a few thoughts to help guide your search   

It’s wintertime, and the weather outside is…well, as they say, frightful!  But picture this:

You’re on your way home from work, and all you’re thinking about is getting cozy.  Then, all of a sudden, you spot your house from way down the street.  But wait…it’s completely dark outside, so from that distance, how do you know which house is yours?  Easy…because yours is the one with the professional and tasteful
outdoor lighting system.

Okay, so maybe outdoor lighting alone won’t make you feel any better about winter, but it sure will help you sleep better at night.

Consider, if you will, the value of infrared motion detectors (IMDs).  These are activated by human body heat and automatically activate outdoor lights when they sense motion…up to 70-feet away!  And because they’re specifically programmed for human body heat, IMDs won’t be triggered by wandering nocturnal critters.  For best results, have them installed well above the ground to cover a broader area.

For those times when you’re out for the evening or on vacation, automatic timers and remote controls take the worry out of being away.  Timers automatically turn on outdoor lighting at a given time, and remote controls allow you to control lights on from inside or outside the home.

Floodlights provide the greatest amount of light and are ideal in large areas like a lawn or driveway.  Mini-spot lights also play a positive role in home security to light up keyholes, house numbers, or other small, out-of-the-way dark spots.

Beyond the obvious security benefit of outdoor lighting, they also can add a unique kind of beauty to your home in New Jersey
