Your home’s exterior and its surrounding landscape are the first distinguishing characteristics to welcome a visitor. With the use of outdoor lighting, you can highlight details of your home that would otherwise go unnoticed once the sun goes down. With the use of spot lights, “dusk-to-dawn” lights or motion sensor lighting, you can greatly add character, beauty and safety to your home and landscaping.
Spot lights can be used to highlight architectural features and add visual accents on the exterior of your home. They can also be used to draw attention or add emphasis to landscape features. Gazebos, patios and decks can also be beautifully lit by positioning spot lights downward from a tree limb or rooftop.
Dusk to Dawn Lighting
Dusk to dawn lights offer a convenient option for outdoor security by automatically controlling your home’s exterior lighting. With photocell technology, dusk to dawn lights can sense natural light and turn themselves on when the sun goes down saving you the trouble of manually turning them on every night. They also shut off when the sun rises, conserving energy during the day.
Landscape lighting can help increase the functionality of your outdoor spaces. With the right type of lighting, your deck and patio areas can be used long after the sun goes down. Landscape lighting can also illuminate driveways, walkways, stairs and other outdoor features that would otherwise be potential hazards in the dark.
Motion Sensor Lighting
Motion sensor lighting is an excellent way to light up the outdoor areas of your home that can be hazardous to maneuver in the dark. Positioned near walkways and entrances, motion sensor lighting can help lead you in from the yard or driveway. They are also a low-cost way to improve your security by warding off any approaching intruders.
