Motion sensor lights can be installed anywhere outside your home, including your shed and garage. Your drive can be illuminated as soon as your car approaches. They sense motion within a radius of about 8-10 metres and around 100° angle of detection.

With quality sensors that only react to the body heat of humans, combined with home security lights, you can allow pets to roam in the garden without setting off your alarm system.

Outdoor Security Lighting UK Products

There is a good choice of outdoor security lighting – UK and American companies supply a range at reasonable prices, including porch/bulkhead lights and tungsten halogen floodlights, in designs that are purely functional or decorative.
They can be activated by passive infra red movement detectors or body heat sensors, within a range of 8-10 metres and around 100* sensing angle.

Most types are supplied in either low or normal household voltage versions. For home use, low-voltage systems have several advantages, since low-voltage equipment is easier to install and available as DIY kits.
The entire system can be connected by a transformer to a normal household circuit and runs on a harmless low voltage current. The lightweight wiring can be laid on the ground or buried just below the surface.

The higher voltage system runs on the same power that supplies your home and requires the same precautions and professional installation that is required for normal house wiring.

Some systems have a CCTV camera integrated, so that when activated the incident can be viewed on your TV, or recorded to a video recorder.
Lights should be fitted out of easy reach, at a height of at least 2.5 metres (eight feet).

Solar outdoor security lights- provide an energy efficient option, by storing sunlight energy using a photoelectric panel, to charge a battery during the day and provide electric light in the evening.
