You need to assess your property through the eyes of a would be burglar, understand its weaknesses and then use the guide below to decide what lighting you are going to install. Main Entry Door LightingThe lighting that is around the doors of your home is one of the most important parts of your home security plans. Most burglars like to target entry doors before anything else, they offer easy entry and exit routes if not adequately protected. To improve the security of your doors consider any lighting at all to be better than no lighting. If a burglar sees lights illuminating the door areas the chances are he will select another home to visit, lighting increases
his chances of being observed. If the lights are off and the door area is in the shadows the burglar will more than likely enact his plans. Front Garden and Driveway Motion DetectorsMotion activated lights can make your front garden a problem area for a potential burglar removing their ability to approach your home unseen. If you are planning to use motion detectors
in the front garden, you should make sure that you have tested the installation locations carefully. You will irritate neighbours and lessen the surprise lighting effect if people walking by, or children playing in the street, frequently trigger the sensors. Rear Garden ProtectionFor the exterior of your home external lighting is definitely a good investment. The rear of the house is not seen by passing traffic affording a burglar more time to try to gain entry to your home.
