The attributes on night lighting offer beauty, usefulness, safety, security and emotion. Safety and security are important when you don’t expect it. Preparation is key. Covering the outside deters intruders and watchers from your home. Live on a dark street? Night lighting could be the answer. A sound outdoor lighting design will work with anyone of the home security professionals you choose. Video and cameras work much better at night under a properly illuminated space.”

Here is a scenario you could follow for security lighting using the Outdoor Lighting, cameras, tree lighting and automation. Say for instance your outdoor lighting goes on from 20 minutes before sunset til 11:30 pm. You should have your motion detectors set on a timer to go on at 11:31 pm. This way here if anyone enters the drive the motion lights detect and illuminate. Sounds suspicious grab your remote and activate the night lighting surround in the trees. Night lighting helps in numerous ways. Intruders will select areas of darkness to stage and enter. If your landscape is nicely lit, it would be probable they may go somewhere else. After all some light is better than none.
