LED Lighting Tips to Keep Your Outdoors Safe

1. Lighting Placement

Install lights with the priority of safety and security.

  • Main Entrance: A well-lit main entryway provides security. LED downlights and floodlights are the best choices. Other entry points like gates and back doors should be illuminated by spotlights, accent lights, or tall downlights to discourage unauthorized entry.
  • Windows: Windows are additional entry points for burglars. Accent lights deliver security and functionality to the entire façade.
  • Pathways: Stairs, retaining walls, or steep slopes should be illuminated to prevent accidental trips or falls.
  • Driveways: Overhead street lights or path lights keep vehicles on course in the dark.
  • Steps: Stair lights prevent accidental falls, especially during nighttime.
  • Parking Lots: Parking lots are the most common location of crime. Tall LED floodlight’s day-like illuminating power keep cars, customers and employees safe.
  • Other Areas: Patios, decks, outdoor kitchens, pergolas, gazebos, and trellises.
