When you think about protecting your home, you probably think about security cameras and an alarm system. It’s not every day we think about how important of a role outdoor lighting plays when it comes to the security systems of our Twin Falls and Jerome, ID homes. Without proper lighting, security cameras would be almost ineffective and intruders wouldn’t be able to see you have cameras installed to hopefully deter them from disturbing the peace. Outdoor lighting is essential and choosing the right outdoor lighting solution for your home is even more important. Call MAGIC Electric, Plumbing, Heating + Air today for professional outdoor lighting installation services.
Are you on the market for new indoor lighting as well? We can help! Call us today for professional indoor lighting installation services.
Types of Outdoor Lighting
There are various different types of outdoor lighting solutions, each with their own purpose. The most common include:
- Task Lighting: Task lighting is just what the name suggests, lighting dedicated to a specific task. One of the best examples of this is pathway lighting which is installed to light the walkway to your front door, making it easier to navigate at night time. Another great use of task lighting is motion-sensor lighting or emergency lights, which as we stated above, are used to deter intruders (humans or pests) from approaching your home.
- Accent Lighting: Accent lighting is specifically for the folks who value aesthetics. If you care about the way your yard lights up at night or how your lawn fountain glistens in the darkness, you definitely want accent lighting installed outside of your home. Give us a call today to discuss your options for accent lighting.
- Ambient Lighting: Ambient lighting is perfect for front porches or backyards designed for fun and entertaining. Ambient lighting sets the mood and creates a peaceful atmosphere in your outdoor space. String lights, post lights, and wall lights are a great way to customize your space and create an outdoor oasis for you and your guests to enjoy.
The Importance of Outdoor Lighting
Outdoor lighting plays a vital role in our home’s security defense system. Motion sensor lighting can alert you when you have unwanted visitors in your yard and deter intruders from messing with your home. There is nothing more important than keeping your home safe!
Outdoor lighting is also a great opportunity to utilize LED lights that are more sustainable, eco-friendly, and longer-lasting than their traditional counterparts. We can install energy-efficient light bulbs in your floodlights, motion sensors, porch and patio fixtures, step lights, and post lanterns.
Just like any other electrical job, when installing outdoor lights, it’s important to have it done professionally. An improper outdoor lighting installation doesn’t only look sloppy and tacky, but one wrong wiring job can lead to an array of problems for your home’s entire electrical system. Get the job done right the first time by calling MAGIC Electric, Plumbing, Heating + Air today.
