You wouldn’t buy a car without thinking of your needs and wants first. When it comes to security lighting, its best to consider the many different types of systems available. These include:

  • Motion-activated – If you want to protect your home and minimize energy costs at the same time, motion-activated security lights are a great option for you. Motion-activated security lights are only activated when they detect motion in a designated area, saving you money and energy when no motion is detected.
  • Halogen flood lights – Halogen flood lights are the most common type of security lighting found in the Tampa and St. Petersburg areas. It provides strong lighting at the flick of a switch. Keep in mind, halogen flood lights consume more energy than most other types of security lighting.
  • Fluorescent – Fluorescent security lighting is the most practical and conventional type of security lighting. Although many people may consider installing fluorescent security lights a DIY project, it’s best to leave the installation and design to a professional electrician to avoid personal injury and costly repairs.
  • HID – HID security lighting, or “high intensity discharge,” emits strong light that is simply incomparable to other kinds of security lighting systems. HID lights are best suited for large residential structures and backyards.
