You will irritate neighbours and lessen the surprise lighting effect if people walking by, or children playing in the street, frequently trigger the sensors. Rear Garden ProtectionFor the exterior of your
home external lighting is definitely a good investment. The rear of the house is not seen by passing traffic affording a burglar more time to try to gain entry to your home. If you have a secluded rear garden, you should always make sure that you use motion detected lights. If you have a very large garden you can always connect an alarm to the lights. This way if someone was to move through your garden, the lights would sound the alarm. Burglars
do not like alarms and they will normally leave the area the instant they hear an alarm sounding. To avoid false alarms generated by neighbours cats adjust the detector sensitivity to only react to a large object. Garage and Carport LightsIf you own a garage, you should always consider installing an automatic garage opener and garage lighting. Once the doors are activated they can also automatically turn on the garage or drive lights. This will prevent anyone hiding inside or near to your garage and planning to surprise you when you exit the car.
