Feeling More Secure with Outdoor Lighting

Professionally installed low-voltage lighting softly illuminates and elegantly enhances your home and property while protecting you and your family.

For years, we’ve been tasked with illuminating Northern Virginia’s homes and properties. When lighting for security, we strive to provide adequate light that eliminates any dark areas, an intruder might hide within these three areas:

1. Entry points: Illuminating entry points, such as the front entrance, side doors, lower windows, and garage, will allow you to see who’s coming and going, and make it difficult for an intruder to gain access. Uplighting the home’s columns or other architectural features will brighten dark entries and enhance its beauty.

2. Yard and areas close to the home: It’s important to add light to dark walkways and paths, landscaping, outdoor living areas, and outdoor structures. Some ambient light in the yard gives a more comprehensive look while eliminating dark areas.

3. The perimeter of your property: If you have lots of trees or a wooded area where someone could potentially hide, illuminating those areas will give you peace of mind.

Strategically lighting your home, the areas surrounding your home and yard, and the perimeter of your property, makes it more difficult for a potential intruder to get onto your property and into your home. Usually, thieves choose an easy target, and a house that is well lit deters unwelcome intruders.

Professional low-voltage landscape lighting elegantly enhances your home’s natural beauty while providing an elevated level of security for you and your family. Using more than one lighting technique creates different layers of light. Lighting in layers not only adds beauty and interest, but it allows us to create multiple “zones” of light.

At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, we understand the art of blending security with the aesthetic aspect of a lighting design. During a free assessment, you’ll meet with one of our lighting designers to discuss your security lighting needs and setting up zones.
