These lights consume less energy, produce more brightness and reduce bill. There are various energy saving lights you can opt for, but none of them come cheaper, no matter whether you choose CFL bulbs, led bulb, or halogen bulbs. They all cost more than filament bulbs and life time is uncertain if current is fluctuating. Hence, even you are using these lights to save energy or bill, make sure you are cleaver enough to use them in the best possible way, especially when you are using it for security lighting. Here is how you can do it.

  • If you want to leave your security light on overnight then install a motion sensor. This will allow bulbs to illuminate get on only when any motion is sensed and will get switched off automatically once movement stops.
  • Also use timer or photovoltaic cell unit for walkway, security and porch lighting, so that lights will be turned on when it gets dark and then off automatically in the morning.
  • Install security lights to the place where they can illuminate maximum area.
Using these tips, you can surely make maximum and better use of energy saving lightings.
