Lighting Beautifies the Home

By far the number one reason we're asked to install outdoor lighting is to enhance the beauty of property at night. Every system we've installed has enhanced the beauty of the home and every single customer has been pleased. But it's a no-brainer really, outdoor lighting really makes a home shine at night.

Lighting is Safe

A by product of an outdoor lighting system is the safety aspect that the light provides. A system that is installed correctly will not only light up the subject areas but the ambient light will illuminate most of the rest of the property. This is great because you won't find yourself (or your guests) tripping or falling over things they can't see in the dark.  A well-installed outdoor light system will make your property much safer at night and prevent your and your guests from unfortunate accidents due to darkness.

Home Security Lighting is Reason #1

But the biggest and most important reason to install outdoor lighting is security. Dark houses and dark properties are most inviting to burglars. According the the Rutgers University of Criminal Justice, the right lights in the right place are a powerful crime prevention tool¹. Darkness gives the bag guys cover to case the property and work their way inside. Homes with outdoor lighting systems are much less susceptible to break-in because there is nowhere to hide. Well placed up-lights illuminating your home will create gigantic shadows of burglars which could bring attention they don't want². Perps prefer darkness and well-lit homes will be passed over by the bad guys. If your schedule doesn't allow for a new outdoor lighting system, at least consider motion detectors for your existing flood lights. They are inexpensive and could be the reason a perp skips over your house and goest to another (dark) house in another location.

Absolute Lighting installed my outdoor flood lights 2 years ago and they are beautiful! They did such a great job that I used them to setup and take down the Christmas lights for the past 2 years. I would highly recommend them. Frank always responds to questions and automatically puts me on the schedule for set up and take down of the Christmas Lights.

Frank and the team at Abulous were great to work with. They came out and retro-upgraded some previous lighting that we had done a few years back and made it look as seamless and continuous as possible. They also worked with us on the best (& most economical) way to light up a hard to reach area of our yard. They also followed up with us after we had another group of workers "disturb" some of the lighting wires and came back out and fixed everything back up again. Very friendly, dependable local resource who do great work. Highly recommend.

After reviewing multiple companies we contracted with Abilous Lighting to create outside accent lighting for our home, backyard patio, walkways, & fire pit.  Their ideas and design were the best!   It was a pleasure working with Frank Hasty, who did  the design, and his crew of Brandon & Rusty who performed the work.  All were excellent to work with.   We are very happy with Abulous Lighting.
