One of the places in your house that constantly need security lighting is the garage. Make sure this area is amply covered with lighting at night. For a small garage, a single light at the center of the entrance would suffice. But for a 2-car garage or bigger areas, you should install some more. The sides of your house also need proper illumination for a similar purpose. In addition, sensors in your lighting system in these areas are a good idea if you'd like to save energy. These sensors automatically activate your lighting system when programmed according to time or when motion is detected.
It's always around this time of the year that I appreciate the design elements of our outdoor lighting scheme. The days are getting shorter and I find that I am turning on our outdoor lights slightly earlier each day. We have both lights for safety and outdoor party lights. The result of decent outdoor lighting is that we can still enjoy our outdoor space into late August and September.
Before installation, a proper written planning of the outdoor lighting needs to be done along with the layout of the house and plot. This plan will also help you in deciding, the particular area in which the additional lighting can be installed. Then, the wiring conduit needs to be placed to connect the electricity source to the receptacles and lighting fixtures. While choosing the fixtures of exterior lighting, certain factors must be considered such as voltage specifications, sort of activity indulged by the family outdoors and the location of underground cables, water lines and wires.
I have tried to replicate the feel of bringing the indoors outside (which is what properly placed outdoor patio lights and patio furniture should do) at my own home. In choosing your outdoor lights there are a number of things you should always consider. With the proper considerations and forethought your patio lighting can be perfect.
