What Is the Best Security Light to Buy?

The best security light is powerful enough to illuminate dark spots and resilient enough to withstand the elements. 

We have a wide variety of brands and products, with different features you can compare – from motion detection modes to adjustable detection ranges. 

Some of the features to check when shopping for the best lighting options include:

  • Appropriate local weather rating
  • Sufficient lumens
  • Adjustable brightness
  • Flexible dusk to dawn programming
  • Integration with home apps

The temperatures around Lake Macquarie aren’t extreme, but you’ll want to get fixtures that can function in typical Australian heat and wintry nights.

The best fixtures offer ample lighting that dissuades approaching intruders. The better, if you can adjust its brightness.

O’Brien Electrical can assist you with finding the best light model brands to purchase and install.

Why Is Security Lighting Important?

Security lighting provides sufficient illumination that deters would-be intruders from approaching your home at night. The bright lights act as a psychological deterrent, making intruders believe there might be someone observing their actions.  

Most burglars prey on homes that appear to be uninhabited. Outdoor lighting establishes a sense of occupancy in the home and reduces the chances of burglary. Lighting is a form of target hardening that minimizes break-in chances.

Lighting also enables home occupants to navigate around their yards safely at night. A well-lit home allows you to avoid obstacles, changes in elevation, and any tripping hazards when walking at night.

Outdoor sensor lighting also provides extra protection to garages, entryways, and parking areas. Motion detection lights are a great way of cutting electricity bills while still protecting your home.

At O’Brien Electrical, we help homeowners install sensor lighting that deters even the most determined intruders.

What Is the Most Powerful Security Light?

Floodlights are the most powerful security light. The most potent floodlights come with a 180-degree detection angle and a detection range of over 72 feet. The waterproof rating should be IP-65 and above.

What’s the brightest security light you can get?

The brightest security light gives off over 6000 lumens. However, it is generally recommended to use lights with a brightness up to 3500 lumens for home lighting. It’s best to talk to a professional with experience in lighting design to assess which types of lights and what level of brightness will best suit your home and your safety needs.
