Outdoor & Security Lighting

Let us help you create an outdoor security lighting system that meets all your needs. One of our professional electricians will visit your property to design a security lighting plan tailored to your requests. Lights can be installed on existing utility poles or on specially placed poles based on the necessary level of lighting.

Homeowners can benefit from a lighting security system that can detect and recognize movement in an otherwise overlooked and dark surroundings. Downward-directed and shielded security lighting of medium intensity provides the best vision for outdoor lighting. In addition to the position of the security lights, controlling the glare is a major consideration. This is crucial because Pennsylvania homeowners who can see the criminal can possibly provide authorities with descriptions, information, and other valuable clues.

How Motion Sensors Work

Motion detectors are small electronic eyes that detect infrared waves-heat waves that radiate from moving objects. When the detector senses an object moving across its field of view-especially warmer objects such as people, animals, and cars-it electronically turns on the lights. The light stays on anywhere from 1 to 20 minutes, depending on how you preset the timer. Then the detector automatically shuts the light off unless it continues to sense movement. A photocell deactivates the light during daylight hours.

Most motion detectors have a semicircular field of view of up to 240 degrees and a distance range, adjustable on most detectors, that extends to 70 ft. or more. The detector will react to the movement of your dog, an approaching person, a passing car, or sometimes even wind-blown leaves.

At Lehigh Valley Electric, Inc, we can install and maintain any security lighting system as well as motion sensors to protect your home.
