Outdoor wall lighting is an essential addition for increasing safety and security on the exterior of your home. Installing outdoor wall lighting near entrances can help to greatly reduce the risk of accidental slips, trips and falls on the approach to the door, which can be a concern for all family members, but particularly for children and the elderly.
During the hours of darkness, outdoor wall lights illuminate the exterior of your home, helping to keep your family and visitors to your home safe, making it easier to find keys, and to get indoors quickly. Throughout the longer nights in the winter, when you’re likely to want to get in from the cold as quickly as possible, your outdoor wall lighting can be a huge help, and in the warmer summer months, your outdoor wall lighting can add ambient light to your garden that can enable you to make the most of the time that you spend outside.
Outdoor lighting is rarely required throughout the night though, and keeping lights switched on continuously adds unnecessary costs to your electricity bill. Having outdoor lighting on timers is an option, but outdoor wall lights with sensors, and Passive Infrared Sensors (PIR) are often a better choice for many family homes. Rather than being lit all night, the PIR sensor detects movement, triggering the light to come on for a set amount of time – when it is needed by a member of the household returning home, or leaving during darker mornings.
By using a PIR sensor, your outdoor wall light only uses electricity to power the bulb when the light is required, which eliminates the issue of wasted power and increased electricity bills, particularly where super-efficient LED bulbs are used. This is better for the environment, and outdoor wall lights with PIR sensors are also better for minimising light pollution, which is problematic for the local wildlife and insect populations.
In addition to safety and security measures, outdoor wall lights are an ideal accessory to help increase the aesthetic appeal of your home, helping to make the outside of your home look as great as the interior. Our range of outdoor wall lights with PIR sensors are perfectly suited for both domestic and commercial use, and in a range of styles including on-trend styles such as up and down wall lights, modern lanterns, and timeless lanterns in vintage and traditional styles.
All our outdoor wall lights with PIR sensors are simple to fit, and are all made from weather resistant materials such as stainless steel, copper, and brass. For homes that are within a few miles of the coast, we have corrosion-resistant options that are suitable for resisting the damaging effects of salt in the air.
