Do You Need Security Lights?
The proper placement of security lights can be significant in deterring crimes at your facility. Darkness allows criminals to operate unseen. If your facility lacks proper lighting the risk increases significantly.
One of the worst crimes that can occur for a business especially small businesses is theft. A business must have effective security tools if they want effective protection.
Leave the Lights Operating
You will often see both interior & exterior lights running at businesses in the night. There are multiple reasons for this. For instance. some businesses leave all their lights running after work hours simply to give the impression that individuals are still in the building. So a criminal will be less likely to enter the premises if they believe personnel are there.
You may conclude not all areas need lights because they are not sensitive areas. Organizations can use targeted lighting. This type of lighting goes in combination with security cameras, illuminating the area the view of the camera area. This doesn’t protect all areas but works well for sensitive locations.
Keep your lights protected
Security lights should also have protection against attackers. An attacker could use an object to smash the light quickly and gain access. Many businesses keep their lighting with clear plastic panels. For additional security, mesh wire can protect the light from damage. Mesh or wire protection can also protect from debris during storms.
Different types of security lights
There are several types of security lighting systems available. Your business location, the level of threats will determine what kind of security lights you will use.
Many companies are concerned about about electricity bills if they install too may lights. An economical option, is security lights with motion activation. The lights will remain off until they detect movement. They turning on will alert security personnel to investigate. After a period of time, the lights will shut off until there is movement again.
Standalone alone lights are another cost effective lighting system. Solar panels will draw power from the sun. Likewise, the panels will charge a battery with the power. This is highly beneficial for areas that do not have electricity outlets where you want a light. Additionally, it will reduce the power bill since you are using solar energy.
Halogen Lights (Flood)
Halogen light bulbs are great for large areas. The tungsten filament produce a very bright light. There are very numerous shapes and sizes. Being an older technology it is cheap in costs to implement. However, the energy efficiency is poor in comparison to others and will increase electricity bills.
High Intensity Discharge (HID) Lighting
HID lighting is one of the more effective lighting especially for exteriors. They can make more visible light per unit of power than fluorescent and incandescent lamps. HID lights will cover large areas, making ideal for lighting large exterior areas.
