outdoor lighting for residential homes increases safetyGood lighting looks good. But there’s a lot more to it than simple aesthetics. Quality lighting is about function as well. And if you’re involved in designing or installing lighting solutions in the Southern California area, you can help your clients with solutions that look good and perform well.

Nowhere is that more important than in security lighting. Providing additional security to residential areas is an important function. But there’s more to it than simply slapping up a few extra floodlights on the exterior of a home.

pathway lighting keeps residences saferAs a matter of fact, some of the studies (like the 2010 study from the Illinois Coalition for Responsible Outdoor Lighting) conducted on increased lighting indicate that simply adding more light can actually increase crime—if the lighting isn’t done properly!

Improper exterior lighting can actually create areas of dark shadow that provide great hiding places for burglars and other unwanted visitors. On top of that, harsh floodlights are an annoyance to neighbors and just aren’t aesthetically appealing.

That’s why an overall solution is necessary—something that takes the whole lighting picture into consideration. That’s something many homeowners simply don’t think about. But as a lighting professional, you can help your clients “see the light” when it comes to exterior illumination. You have the knowledge—and access to the products and technologies that will make their homes look good and stay secure.

And when it comes to making sure you have access to the products, technologies and solutions your clients want (and need), we’ve got your back! We’re picky about the product lines we carry because we know that you—and your customers—want quality that delivers great aesthetics and great functionality. It’s why we’re proud to carry solutions from Lutron, Cree, FX Luminaire, Integrated LED Controls, Liberty Wire and Cable and Universal Remote Control.

Contact us and we’ll work together to put together a solution that will keep unwelcome visitors away from your clients’ homes—and look good doing it!
