Security & Safety Lighting Installation Can Help Scare Off Criminals

Recently one of Dallas Landscape Lighting’s longtime customers called to schedule a bulb replacement for her tree lights.

While on the phone she mentioned that the backyard tree lights we installed 2 years ago saved her home from being broken in to.

According to a police officer that arrived to make a report on her neighbors break-in, the trespasser opened our customer’s gate but since the lighting up in the trees was directed down on to the lawn (which creates an effect much like a full moon). 

They decided to bail out of their plan to attempt a break in at her house.

You may think that she just got lucky, which is certainly true, she did get very lucky. 

However, luck or not, this homeowner was prepared and had precautionary safety measures in place. 

If her yard had been dimly lit or completely dark, would she have been this lucky? 

Most people opt for the peace of mind that lighting, alarm systems and/or security cameras give. 

Having one or all safety precautions in place will surely give a would-be intruder a reason to skip your home.

Types of Home Security Lighting installed by Dallas Landscape Lighting

There are many ways to light your home or property that will keep would-be intruders at bay. 

People have been mounting motion lights over their garages and near entry ways for years. While this is a popular form of exterior lighting, it isn’t as effective as it might seem. 

These lights are only triggered when movement is detected within a limited area. 

A criminal that has experience knows how to spot a motion light and can keep themselves from being detected. 

If this is the only security lighting feature on your property – consider expanding your lighting options. 

Motion lights only ‘shed light’ on one area of the outside perimeter of your home. 

So what are better security lighting options for your home? See below.

Tree Lighting Deters Criminals

Obviously tree lighting is a proven deterrent. It is probably one of your best bets as far as getting more for your money. The effect tree lighting has when cast down is ethereal and creates the most beautiful environment in your yard. Up lights mounted at the base of trees does something completely different, but equally as beautiful. 

Highlighting the texture of a palm tree’s trunk and its palm fronds creates a tropical feeling in your backyard (which is perfect around a pool!) Tall, mature trees with an up light illuminating the branches and leaves above is a popular choice among homeowners. The effect is stunning!

Mounting ‘house lights‘ on the exterior of your home (shining up to highlight architecture, or shining down to highlight flower beds/walkways) is not only a VERY smart idea, it looks great too. Mounting them from below shining up highlights architecture, mounting them from above shining down sheds light on flower beds, walkways, etc.

Some find pathway lighting to be effective as well as necessary to see your way to and from your door. Pathway lighting is perfect for lining the front of flower beds so that they both illuminate the beds as well as the path. It is one of the most popular options for landscape lighting.

Wall Lights / Step Lights are another great safety lighting option. Small up or down lights mounted to exteriors such as brick walls, wood fences, railing, posts, etc. Though primarily used to light the way, these are also an excellent safety precaution. Wall lights are mounted much higher than path lights (which are mounted in the ground).

Smart Home Security & Video Surveillance

Access Control Software

Access control software, typically used in businesses, helps you keep track of who enters and exits a facility through key card, microchip or phone-verified entry.

People with the appropriate credentials can use specific pre-coded electronic devices to gain entry, and the software grants them access while recording entry times in a centralized system.

Integrated access control involves other security features in conjunction with key cards, microchips and other electronics. 

When you combine high-resolution security camera systems and other measures, you give your workers unparalleled safety – and you have even more data on which personnel are entering and exiting designated areas.

A fully integrated system can help you dramatically reduce theft and fraud. You’ll be able to monitor and respond to security alerts from anywhere in the world with internet connection when your security expert connects you to web-based access control software.

Intercoms and Telephone Entry

Intercoms and telephone entry systems are ideal for apartment buildings, office buildings and a wide range of other commercial businesses. You can install commercial intercoms and telephone entry systems to require guests, employees and others to verbally verify their identities or state the nature of their business in your facility.

Video intercoms provide an additional layer of security, as well. Administrators can simply verify a person’s identity through video or voice communication and make the decision to admit or deny entry.

Home Security Camera Systems and Installation by Dallas Landscape Lighting

Keep your home – and everything in it – safe with home security camera installation services by Dallas Landscape Lighting. Our team of experts can identify the ideal locations for home security cameras on your property. We’ll help you choose the right products and solutions, develop a plan, and implement your new video surveillance system so you can protect what matters most.

Installing home security cameras is a smart move. You’ll be able to keep an eye on your property while you’re away, protect what’s yours, and respond quickly to property damage or theft. You can even use the footage your home security camera system captures as evidence – and that can give you the peace of mind you deserve.

How Much Does it Cost to Install a Home Security Camera System?

Every home security camera system is different, which means it’s tough to put a price tag on installation. Several factors will affect your cost for installing a camera system on your property, including:

  • How many cameras you need
  • What types of cameras you choose
  • How long the installation process takes
  • Whether you need new electrical wiring

What Types of Home Security Cameras Are There?

There are several types of home security cameras. Some wirelessly transmit a feed to an online storage center, some are triggered by motion while others record continuously, and some have microphones that capture sound as well as visual images. You can also choose the resolution of your home security cameras; those with lower resolution typically cost less than HD cameras do. There are wired and wireless outdoor cameras, floodlight cameras and even those with the ability to capture infrared or night-vision footage in the dark.

Do You Need New Electrical Wiring for Home Security Camera Installation?

You may need new electrical wiring to install a home security camera system. That’s because many cameras need to be directly connected to a power source. If you do need new wiring, don’t worry – Dallas Landscape Lighting is led by a master electrician who can map out a plan that brings electricity where you need it.

Where Are the Best Locations for Home Security Cameras?

Every home is different, so Dallas Landscape Lighting’s team of experts can help you determine where to place cameras as part of a home security system. Many people choose to put cameras:

  • In high-traffic areas, such as the porch (as well as facing the front sidewalk to monitor who’s coming and going)
  • Near the back door or at private entrances
  • Around easy access points for criminals, such as first-floor windows and basement entrances
  • In garages or mounted outside a garage, facing the driveway
  • At entry and exit points on fences
  • Around front and back yards, which can help you monitor kids and pets as well as potential criminal activity

What About Indoor Security Cameras?

Dallas Landscape Lighting can also install indoor security cameras where you need them most. Whether you’re monitoring a child’s room, the kitchen or living room, entrance points or windows, you could benefit from having an indoor security camera system. Our team will help you identify the right locations for cameras, as well as help you choose the right equipment for your needs, and then we’ll install everything from start to finish.
