How to protect home or office from pesky neighborhood thieves? LED security light can be one of the best solutions. Have you ever had anything stolen from your front porch or yard? If so,it might be time to upgrade the security lighting system and add more of it. With the efficiency of LED security lights, lighting up home or office to deter thieves is not as expensive as it use to be.
To start off, with the drop in cost for LED security lighting products, using LED lights for security around home or office got a lot easier. Going with LED lights means we can run those lights from dusk to dawn without the huge burden on the electric bill that those old incandescent or metal halide bulbs can cost us. An LED light can save us 90% compared to those old incandescent bulbs. LED lights also last a whole lot longer, meaning less costs down the line and not needing to go out and replace bulbs regularly. LED lights is now the go to when it comes to security.
Here are 4 tips to use outdoor LED security light for home and workplace
1, Use the Brighter LED security light
With the efficiency of LED security lights, going a little brighter is not going to hurt your wallet the way it does with older technologies. A 10w LED light can replace 150w old incandescent light with same brightness. With the addition of motion sensor security light, you can go brighter without worrying about that bright light on all night.
Remember that LED lights are far more efficient, so pay attention to lumens, not watts. LED lights also do not degrade and lose lumen output with the speed that older lamps do. Using LED lights for your security means that light is going to stay bright for much longer.

2, Use Motion Sensor LED security light
A motion sensor is a great addition for security lighting purposes. With modern LED lighting, there is lots of options when it comes to motion sensor. LED security lights of all kinds can include motion sensors these days, take advantage of it. Using motion sensors in addition to cameras is a sure fire way to help prevent theft. Making sure you have bright light in areas where security cameras are installed will make the footage from the cameras useful. Having a motion sensor LED security light can not only bring light to a location to shine on a thief, but may also deter them into thinking someone just turned the light on, and thus scaring them away.
Many warehouses are now using motion sensor LED high bay lights. These high bay lights save energy by only coming on when employees are in the area doing work. They can also turn on at night if a thief is near the light to work in tandem with built in motion sensor.

Motion sensors in solar powered LED lights not only helps deter theft with light, but also helps preserve the battery and therefore extend the life of a solar powered light. If nothing is around, there is not point in wasting the power created by the solar panel.

3, Install lighting in hard to reach locations
Installing LED security lighting mounted high and out of reach will help deter thieves. The higher you can get these lights so they cannot be reached without a ladder, the better. You don’t want to install a light for security only to have it ripped off the wall by the thief. As our suggestion, it’s better to install the light above 3m height. It takes tools and spirit to dislodge a sturdy security lighting solution and petty thieves aren’t going to take the time to mess with them. Street lights mounted in the eves of the home are a great idea. LED wall packs mounted high up around the office building creating a barrier of light around the building.
4, Never forget to call police
With the help of LED security lights,we can be more safe. Remember, if there is theft or any other danger from unseemly characters at the home or office, make sure that we contact the authorities. The safety of ourselves, our family, our employees and our customers are the top priority, don’t try to take things in our own hands, get the proper authorities involved.
