Our guide to security lighting
Security lighting is a great idea, not just to deter burglars, but also to provide a welcoming light outside the front door and stop people tripping over in the dark.
All too often security lighting is horribly harsh and intrusive, triggered by a passive infrared sensor to be on for 20 seconds when anyone walks past. It's less annoying for neigbours if you situate the sensor inside a gate - always make sure you have a facility to switch it on from inside the house - and with the light above the front door rather than glaring across the street. It's also more envrionmentally friendly to use a low-wattage unit if you can.
