When it comes to security lighting for crime prevention, Helping Hands Electric should be your contactor of choice. In past years, many businesses and families would install big, bright, glare-creating globe lights, or randomly-placed flood lights to prevent criminals from sneaking up on them at night. Numerous studies have shown, however, that just over-lighting a backyard or side of a house does little to deter, and may actually help criminals find easier access to these places. The key to successful security lighting is strategically placing and aiming the flood lights or spot lights where they will startle and at least temporarily blind an intruder, while also alerting you, your neighbors and passersby to their activity. Our Helping Hands Electric electricians have been designing and installing security lighting setups for homes and businesses in the area for many years, so we know how to evaluate where and how to install a successful crime prevention lighting scheme.
