Safety Benefits of Outdoor Lighting


Adding outdoor and landscape lighting to your home and surrounding property has many proven benefits.  Outdoor lighting can be used to illuminate specific areas of your yard, a deck or patio for example. Spotlights can be used to highlight features of your home and just give your property a brighter look and feel. Other than adding to your homes curb appeal, outdoor lighting has safety and security benefits as well.

Safety Benefits

Outdoor lights can add safety to your property in a number of ways. Walkway or path lighting can highlight walking routes to and from your home. This can ensure safety for you and your guests when coming and going. Especially in the winter, when the darkness falls upon us fast, it’s important to be able to see where you’re going and walk with a sure foot. Well placed path lights can help avoid dangerous trips and falls. Similar to walkway lighting, zone lights can be used to highlight a certain area of your yard. Again, this can avoid any potential hazardous missteps due to lack of visibility.

Security Benefits

Just by having your home well-lit can provide a sense of security for homeowners, outdoor lighting is an extremely practical security measure. A home that is full of light will disinterest potential trespassers from entering your property. Installing motion activated spotlights can be effective at scaring away trespassers, if someone is walking through your yard uninvited, a sudden burst of bright light is likely to scare them off. Motion sensors can scare away more than just human trespassers too! Animals use the cover of darkness to prowl your property for leftover food and often times will stumble upon your garbage. Motion activated lights will shine at the sign of movement and scare any critters away before they get the chance to rummage through your trash and make a mess.

Landscape Lighting can provide you with a stronger sense of safety and security within your own home. Contact Northern Outdoor Lighting today if you are thinking of installing outdoor lights on your property!

TESTIMONIAL

“We found Northern Outdoor Lighting by chance after an online search for contractors in our area. After seeing other homes with outdoor lighting during a recent vacation of ours, we decided to see if it would have the same effect on our home. Bill at Northern Outdoor Lighting made it a reality. The welcoming warm picture that our lighted home provides at night now has put a whole new dimension on our property. Bill was very responsive to our inquiries and happily and quickly provided an at home visit to discuss options. We decided to have the front of our property lighted and Bill's team completed the job on schedule with absolutely no evidence of the work that had been done other than the beautiful lighting that our house now has. We are already planning the work to the back of our house and will indeed be looking to Northern Lighting in the near future. Northern Outdoor Lighting has our highest recommendation and confidence. A pleasure to work with!
