If you use your outdoor lighting properly, it can serve as an effective security system in a number of different situations. It is typically a good idea to set your outdoor lighting up with sensors so that they turn on whenever someone enters a designated area.

In addition to deterring potential home invaders, outdoor lighting can also make it easier for guests to navigate to your front door without worrying about tripping.
