Security systems are used frequently to protect homes and give you a sense of well-being. They are usually expensive to install though and normally have a monthly fee, but what if I told you there was a good alternative? You may not have thought about it, but landscape lighting can provide just enough of a deterrent that people won’t attempt to break in. Stores at closing leave lights on to deter thieves, and 24-7 convenience stores have very bright parking lots, but what about homes? Would-be thieves don’t want to be caught, and bright lights are their kryptonite.

As mentioned in an earlier post, uplights and downlights provide light to places that would be pitch black at night, and our tower lights can provide some much needed light also. Walking up to a home without any lighting can be uneasy to a good person, but a welcome sight to a robber. Besides floodlights that may drown the yard in light, there are very few options that make you feel secure, and provide light for low cost. Our tower lights are a good option for a piece of functional modern art that can provide the necessary light to deter thieves, and also produce a warm, comfortable light. They are a one-time purchase, and unlike security systems are easy to maintain and have no monthly fee or subscription. Protecting your home is important, and providing lighting to deter thieves is just a side-effect of their shadow-producing, light distributing power. Check out our lights and see the amount of light they give off. You don’t have to have a flood light to cast great light, and the tower lights provide good shadows as a bonus.
