Security lighting – looking good, protecting your home

Many homes in the UK use security lighting as one part of their overall home protection plan. Thieves don’t want to be seen, so they generally commit their crimes at night. If nobody sees them, they can’t get caught.

Of course, the main reason to install security lights is to protect your home but they can also add a stylish touch to your property. When correctly positioned to complement the exterior design features they will add so much emphasis and character to your home.

Norfolk Wall Up Lantern – PIR

This traditionally stylish light with a black finish and hand-leaded glass panes ensures the outside of your house will look smart and inviting.

This wall light has a PIR sensor, which means if anyone steps within 5M and 110° of the light, it will switch on – so energy isn’t wasted unnecessarily.
