As summer comes to an end, so do those long days and short nights. Now, when you head to work in the morning or the kids go off to school, there is a pretty good chance the sun is just barely breaking the horizon. Although we move are clocks back to make the best of the short winter days, it isn’t enough and we need extra security lighting to make sure we are coming and going with plenty of light brightening our paths. A Burbank electrician can help you enhance the safety of your family’s comings and goings by installing security lights. The Electric Connection has a team of qualified electricians to make this happen.
You have several choices when it comes to picking the right security lighting for your home. Solar lighting is really not an ideal option for the short winter days. While it works great for summer nights, you will want to have something a little more reliable. Electric pathway lights are perfect for illuminating the path between the door and driveway and can be set up on a timer to come on when you need them. Another option is the mounted security light. This can be put up to illuminate a driveway, the pathway to the door or a dark area in your landscaping. This particular type of light is much brighter and can spread light over a large area.
These will need to be installed by an electrician. Burbank homeowners can choose to have these lights on a timer, a manual switch or the common motion-detector system. The timers and motion-detection systems are a little more energy efficient and prevent the light remaining on when it isn’t needed.
