Home Security Specialist in New Jersey
Do you have ample outside lighting for safety and security reasons? Many people have dark corners and unlit areas surrounding their home making it attractive to burglars. Security lighting keeps you, your family and your property safe and leaves you with peace of mind when you cannot be there. Whether you choose to go with a simple light to illuminate a dark area on your property or a complex system that surrounds the perimeters, security lighting keeps accidents to a minimum all while deterring crime and improving the appearance and value of your home.
Picking a System
Security lighting comes in a variety of designs, is energy efficient and is reliable. There are many options including timers that will automatically turn your lights on, sensors which will activate when any motion is detected and lighting that illuminates from dusk till dawn.
Home security lighting includes but is not limited to:
Burglars fear lights. Their goal is to remain hidden and when a bright light suddenly appears on your property, their usual response is to run to remain undetected – hopefully without any of your things. You would be surprised how much difference the installation of one light could give your property. You can choose an outdoor motion light which is sure to surprisingly brighten any burglar's face or go with something more technological such as floodlights which fire up to 60 watts of light onto your property. They are energy-efficient, running off solar power, and can protect for up to 8 hours straight.
Cameras Deter Crime
Research has proven that the visibility of cameras alone reduces crime. It demonstrates that your home is being protected. When scouting out a neighborhood burglars will often be deterred by the sight of a camera and continue on to the next place. Homeowners who invest in a home security system are 40% less likely to be a victim of burglary.

Having security cameras installed will also lower your insurance premium. Most insurance companies offer discounts for clients who have video security systems. You could save up to 20% in insurance costs by installing a security camera. The savings will help cover the cost of the system and combined with the peace of mind you will have, it will more than pay for itself.
Having smoke detectors installed on every level of your home is essential to your safety. Often times fires start in basements and garages. It's important to remember these places. There are also hard-wired smoke alarms which offer strobe lights and vibrating devices for those who have hearing impairments. Battery operated smoke detectors are a decade-old technology and need to be updated. Local ordinances require homes to have hard wired smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms. Your smoke alarms will be hard wired into your household wiring. Your alarms can also be connected so that they all alert at the same time in the instance of danger, giving its occupants valuable extra time to escape harm.

What You Can Do to Prevent a Fire:
Have an Electrical Inspection: There is nothing better than having a professional electrician check out your system to ensure that everything is safe.
Use GFCI receptacles: GFCI's are specifically designed to detect any leakage in electricity and will shut down power to your receptacle to ensure your safety.
Do a visual inspection: Take the time to walk around your home and check that all electrical outlets and light switches are free of broken parts and cracks. If so, have them replaced or repaired immediately. It is also important to be sure to check for outlets and switches that may be hot to the touch as this also likely represents an electrical problem.
Check your power cords: Check all of your extension cords and power cords for signs of wear and fraying and immediately replace.
Are your outlets overloaded? Check that your outlets are not overloaded with too many power cords. The typical household outlet is rated to carry 15-20 amps of power. Overloading outlets can present both shock and fire hazards.
