It can be a ceiling light that hangs from the porch to give a good view of anyone or anything just outside the door where home occupants can view from the windows. A ceiling light also looks welcoming to any visitor. It could be a wall light near the main door for the same purpose of identifying visitors to the home at night.
Of course, outdoor lights are very important in the entryways of your house. The front entrance lighting should always be functional and aesthetic. An uncovered front door would look inviting, warm and elegant with a wall sconce on each side. If your front door is in a covered porch, you can install from the simplest to the most ornate hanging fixture on the ceiling. Aside from providing you with a dramatic façade, front entrance lighting lets you easily see who's knocking at your door and helps keep your home safe from burglars and the like.
There are several types of lamps available for use in low wattage outdoor lighting kits. LED, incandescent, low voltage fluorescent and halogen lamps all provide soft, non-glaring light. Halogen bulbs offer excellent color rendering, are highly efficient and typically last about 4000 hours. Low voltage fluorescent bulbs use little energy and are a good choice if the lights will be on for more than 4 hours at a time.
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.
