If you’ve ever taken a stroll or ride through a luxury or high-class neighborhood, then you have probably noticed the assortment of lighting. Landscape lighting is surely an eye-catcher, and sophisticated systems offer even more.

When Abulous Lighting designs a lighting system, we don’t only focus on aesthetics. Our landscape lighting installation also offers enhanced security. We’ll explain further in this article but call Abulous Lighting if you have any specific questions or concerns.

Key Benefits of Landscape Lighting for Security

Well-lit exteriors make it more difficult for unauthorized individuals to approach a property unnoticed, significantly reducing the likelihood of break-ins and vandalism. Additionally, strategically placed lights can eliminate hiding spots and dark corners, further discouraging criminal activity.

  • Deterring Criminal Activity: Bright lights make it challenging for intruders to remain unnoticed, acting as a powerful deterrent. The presence of landscape lighting sends a clear message that the property is well-maintained and monitored.
  • Enhanced Surveillance: Effective lighting enhances the performance of security cameras by ensuring clear visibility. By illuminating all areas of the property, landscape lighting eliminates blind spots where intruders might hide
  • Safety for Residents: Landscape lighting helps residents and visitors safely navigate pathways, driveways, and entrances. In the event of an emergency, well-lit properties can be more easily accessed by first responders.

Effective Landscape Lighting Techniques for Security

At Abulous Lighting, we employ years of experience and expertise to develop comprehensive landscape lighting systems. Our outdoor lighting installation can include a combination, or all and more, of:

  • Perimeter Lighting: Fence and wall lights create a well-defined and illuminated boundary. Motion-activated lights can be integrated to startle and deter intruders by suddenly illuminating dark areas when movement is detected.
  • Entryway Lighting: Bright lighting at all entry points, including front and back doors, makes it difficult for intruders to approach unnoticed. Don’t overlook secondary entry points like garage doors and side entrances.
  • Pathway and Driveway Lighting: Illuminate walkways and driveways with path lights to ensure safe navigation and eliminate hiding spots along commonly used routes. Driveway lights activated by sensors can alert homeowners to approaching vehicles.
  • Accent Lighting: We use accent lighting to highlight landscaping features such as trees and shrubs. Highlight architectural features of the home with accent lighting to create a well-lit exterior that deters intruders and adds to the property’s visual appeal.

Explore Some Advanced Lighting Solutions

Motion-sensors and LED lighting are innovative, but we are in the 21st century and there are plenty of options for property owners who want to upgrade their property.

The first worth mentioning is smart lighting systems. These systems allow homeowners to control lights remotely via smartphones or other devices, enabling them to adjust lighting even when away from home. Integrate landscape lighting with existing security systems for coordinated responses to detected threats.

There are also eco-friendly solutions like solar-powered lighting which can provide continuous illumination without increasing energy bills. They are ideal for areas where wiring might be challenging.

Finally, we recommend investing in low voltage lighting. Low voltage lighting systems are energy-efficient and safe to use, capable of providing effective illumination while minimizing energy consumption.

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.

We love Abulous lighting and have been using them for years  They are very responsive and professional and  will come back no questions asked for any follow up work  Good pricing and highly trustworthy  Frank, the owner, is a true  stand up guy.  I recommend without reservation

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.
