As you walk, objects in a pathway, ice patches or chipped concrete may cause you to trip, slip or fall. You need to navigate these safely at night. Hence, the most obvious reason why we normally get commercial outdoor security lighting.
How do they work?
These security lights use sodium lamps or mercury vapor lamps which are preferred over the usual incandescent lamps. It’s amazing how long these lamps last, up to 20, 000 hours. Quite convenient too. Just imagine yourself frequently changing a bulb 20 feet in the air…
When buying, consider this
Light from outside sources can be a nuisance for you. Although good commercial outdoor security lighting ensures that light falls where it is needed, you will notice that stray light may disrupt your sleep and create ugly patterns in your living space.
Chose soft over glaring commercial outdoor security lighting. Warm color is more appealing and very cool. But glare compromises your ability to see details in darker areas of your surroundings, and enhances dark shadows where criminals may be hiding.
All in all, outdoor lighting is both for utility and aesthetic purposes. No matter where you live, it sure does come in handy.
