Placement: To identify the areas in your home that require lighting, assess the exterior of your house and determine the ideal spots for installing security lights. Commonly recommended areas for placement include the front porch, driveway, side of the house, and front walkway.
Outdoor Safe: Check for IP rating, which indicates their suitability for dry, damp, and wet locations. Lights with an IP rating suitable for damp locations are recommended for covered porches, while those rated for wet locations are well-suited for use on exterior walls, walkways, and uncovered porches.
Control Options: There are several control options available for your security lights, including motion sensors, smartphone applications, manual switches, or timed settings. It's important to consider the control method that suits your needs. Additionally, remember to take into account any necessary accessories that may need to be purchased to support your chosen control option.
