LED Lighting Safety and Security

Most clients who contact us for lighting are concerned about a few things-safety, security and beauty.  Come December when it is dusk at 4pm, it can make it difficult to see those front steps to the door.  Trying to eliminate any chance of a fall for evening company is number one.   One may have a porch light on, but this does little to brighten up a driveway 100 feet away.  There are many fixtures with variable “wattage” brightness that one can select which is best for a specific application.  Older clients like it bright to see steps, stairs and pathways.   Others choose to have a softer tone or fewer fixtures.   Some clients like the taller pathlights that create a 12 foot puddle of light.  Others select the 2 inch path light that just grazes the walkway, but is nearly discreet in presence.  Being able to select which fixture best suits our clients’ design style is extremely important to them. 

Unsure of what’s around that corner?  We make homes uninviting for the uninvited!   Being blinded by motion lights as you get close to the door is annoying.  Instead we place low light fixtures all around and create an ambient look without light in your eyes.   The client may not be walking down the side path to the backyard, but does want it illuminated and not pitch black.  Coming home late at night and having the lights on is a welcoming feature that all enjoy. 

We’ve had many customers who will purposefully spend time outside at night just to be able to see their beautiful landscape highlighted by warm light.  Going out for a drive at night just to be able to return and view their home as visitors do is not uncommon!  When you place light from one end of the home to the other, your footprint of your home has stretched and becomes larger than if it were to remain in the dark.  Being able to show the details and angles of the architecture along with the landscaping is a highlight of many of our clients. 

Whether you’re concerned about safety, security or just want to see your beautiful investment, low voltage LED lighting is the way to enhance your home.
