Increase Autumn Security and Safety on Your Estero Property with Outdoor Lighting

Unsavory characters are less likely to target a home that is well lit because they have fewer places to hide.

Unsavory characters are less likely to target a home that is well lit because they have fewer places to hide.

The Southwest Flordia summer swelter is finally breaking, and we are getting some of those milder temperatures that are the envy of many areas of the country. With nighttime temperatures in the 70s, it’s the perfect time to be in Estero. Though we are now spending more time outdoors than during the summer, you’ve probably already noticed how much more quickly the sun is setting. Days are getting shorter, and nights are already getting longer. With additional hours of darkness, you may be worried about security and safety on your property, and you have every reason to be. Unsavory characters are harder to spot in the dark, and it’s much easier to trip on an out of place tool or toy when your drive is shadowed. But all of these risks can be minimized by simply adding outdoor lighting.

It’s no secret that thieves and vandals avoid properties that are well illuminated and target those that are shadowed. Shadowed homes provide them plenty of places to lurk and not be seen. They can target your home and not be noticed, but outdoor lighting minimizes the shadowy places where those with ill intent can hide, making your property more secure and safer for you and your family, especially you are returning home after dark.

Illuminate your driveways and entryways to help prevent trips and falls.

Estero outdoor lighting also reveals dangers that shadows conceal. Maybe someone left a garden hose stretched across the driveway, or a child or grandchild left toys lying on the porch. If you are bringing a guest home, he/she won’t be aware of that particularly high first step to the front door. Without clear visibility, such trip hazards could cause your otherwise pleasant evening to end in an ER visit, but with Estero outdoor lighting, your pathways, driveway, and entryways can be illuminated, allowing you to see hazards before they create problems.

Most of us stopped being afraid of the dark many years ago. We recognize there are no monsters in the closet or underneath the bed, so nighttime isn’t that scary. However, kids do have some valid concerns. Darkness can conceal is existence of hazards, and because of this, Estero outdoor lighting is an important autumn addition to your home. For the best outdoor lighting in the southwest Florida area, call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples. With years of experience, our specialists can design, install, and maintain a unique outdoor lighting system for your property, one that will protect you from the things that “go bump in the night” and one that will transform the look and ambiance of your property.

Safety is Beautiful: Outdoor Lighting for Your Southwest Home Security

Eliminating darkness on your property can make it more secure.

Eliminating darkness on your property can make it more secure.

It’s migration season. Birds that wintered over here in Naples are journeying back north. Of course, this happens with people too. Many who spend the winter in our area will be returning to their summer homes in the next few weeks. If you are headed back north soon, you are probably going through your checklist to be sure everything is ready for the months you will be away. Leaving your property for long periods of time can cause apprehension. You want your home to be safe and secure. Don’t forget that outdoor lighting is one of your best security measures, so be sure your system is in top shape before you leave.

 

A well-illuminated property is a crime deterrent. Such a home is at less risk of vandalism or breaking and entering. Unsavory characters prefer to strike homes that are shadowed and dark. In those environments, they are much less likely to be spotted. Not only is outdoor lighting striking and elegant, it can prompt someone with bad intentions to keep moving down the street. So contact Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples to schedule system maintenance. We will ensure your fixtures are in their optimal positions, wiring is reburied, any burned out bulbs are replaced, and your transformer is in good condition. With these routine adjustments, your property will shine. It will attract the attention you want, admiration from neighbors and friends, and not the kind you don’t from vandals and thieves.

 

Lighting Control Automation can give the appearance of being home when you are not.

Lighting Control Automation can give the appearance of being home when you are not.

To further increase the security your outdoor lighting system provides, consider adding Lighting Control Automation (LCA). While it is like a timer in many ways, it does so much more. LCA controls all of the electrical circuits on your property, including your interior lights and TV. Different zones are established, and they can be programmed to turn on and off on a schedule that mimics your normal routines. That way, the exterior of your home and your landscape is illuminated, and your interior lights come on and turn off as if you were home. Knowing it will be less apparent that you are away can give you peace of mind until you return to Naples again in the fall.

 

So if you are migrating soon, give Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples a call. Whether it is routine maintenance, installing Lighting Control Automation, or installing a new system, we can help you be sure your property is secure and ready for your departure. You can relax and enjoy your summer.

Why Should Southwest Florida Homeowners Choose Outdoor Lighting?

Outdoor Lighting Perspectives architectural lighting accentuates Naples home

Outdoor lighting influences aesthetics, functionality, and safety.

No matter how you look at it, outdoor lighting is an investment – an investment of energy and money. Even with the best outdoor lighting company, you will have to cope with some chaos at your home during installation, and all quality products cost money. So why is outdoor lighting such a good choice for homeowners? And why do so many choose to add it? The answer is simple really. The effects of outdoor lighting dramatically change your property. No other home improvement can have such a profound impact on how you, your family, and your guests experience your home. Outdoor lighting elevates a home, makes it stand out from the others that surround it, and brings notice you will need when it comes time to sell. But why does outdoor lighting have such an impact on a home? It comes down to three areas of influence – aesthetics, functionality, and safety.

 

Aesthetics – There is no denying how much more beautiful a property appears at night under strategically placed lighting. In that warm glow, textures seem more vivid, architectural features stand out, and the entire property radiates elegance and mystery. Areas of shadow contrast with bright pools of light, bringing emphasis to the most detailed areas of your home. Beautiful outdoor lighting draws you to a property and causes you to see all its best features. Such light effects mood, brings calm, and transforms the atmosphere.

Outdoor lighting increases safety around your home.

Functionality – It’s hard to do stuff in the dark, even if you are simply sitting on the deck for drinks and conversation. Outdoor lighting extends the hours you can utilize your outdoor spaces. It gives you romantic nights in the lanai and energetic evenings by the pool. No longer will darkness chase you into the house. Rather, you will be able to take advantage of the milder evening temperature, linger, and relax.

 

Safety – An illuminated property is a safe property. Outdoor lighting helps prevent injuries that could occur as a result of night time trips and falls over steps, stones, and misplaced objects. Light can also reveal the presence of encroaching wildlife, such as snakes or spiders. In addition to revealing hazards, outdoor lighting deters criminal activity. It is much more challenging for a thief or vandal to break into a home that is lit because there are fewer places to hide. If given the choice between a well lit or a dark home, criminals will choose the dark one.

 

So why should you add outdoor lighting to your home? Because it improves not just your home but Kurt Shearer Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naplesalso your life in that home. Don’t wait any longer. Take advantage of all these benefit, and start that process by calling Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples today.
