3 Reasons To Install Automated Outside Lights
Exterior lights can add a sense of warmth to your home while making your neighbors envious. Forgetting to turn them on at night just defeats the purpose of installing them, and leaving your exterior lights on all day is a waste of electricity and money. Smart homeowners know that the only way to properly illuminate the exterior of their homes is through the use of automated lights! Below are 3 reasons to have automated lights installed on your property.
As mentioned before, automation saves you money in two ways. If you turn your lights on at night, it obviously looks great. But, it’s easy to forget to switch the lights off when you’re in a rush to leave for work or school in the morning. Leaving them on all day just runs up your electricity bill. Automated lights will turn off when the sun comes up, so there’s no need to hit the switch before you rush out the door in the morning.
Apart from an attack dog, nothing deters a would-be burglar better than an illuminated house. If you’re not home to turn on your exterior lights, a burglar knows nobody is in the house and may think it’s a free pass to take all your belongings. With automated lights, you can rest assured your house will be illuminated every night at dusk.
If you’re entertaining guests and want to have the lights come on earlier than dusk, that’s not a problem at all. A simple adjustment to the lights’ setting will turn them on as early as you’d like but still turn them off at dawn.
Why Install Security Lighting?
If someone comes onto your property when they have not been invited, there are a number of different ways you can discourage them. Bright lights are one of the simplest and most effective ways to defend your home against burglars or intruders. A home which is well-lit or lights up upon detecting motion is much less likely to be targeted than one which is dark.
Reasons to consider installing security lighting include:
- Enhance the image of your home
- Raise the value of your property
- Improve curb appeal
- Reduce your insurance premium
- Increase resale value
- Deter vandalism, intruders, and crime
