Your business in Huddersfield is much more susceptible to a break in at night once everyone has packed up for the day. So, how this risk be minimised?
High quality outdoor security lighting can drastically reduce the risk of break ins during the night. Burglars are not going to target a well-lit premises with CCTV – it’s simply not worth the risk. By installing high quality security lighting you’ll even be improving your brands image – it shows you’re committed to safety, employee, and customer care.
Types of security lighting:
- Dawn to Dusk: Dawn to dusk security lights use photocell technology to identify the amount of light outside, thus turning on or off. Dawn to dusk security lights works great in tricking burglars into thinking the premises is occupied – as if someone is manually controlling the lighting.
- PIR: Lighting with a built in PIR sensor is activated by motion or heat. When activation occurs, an intense pool of light is emitted exposing the activator and the surrounding area.
- LED Floodlights: Floodlights are designed to effectively light large-scale areas. They can offer illumination up to 20 metres away from the source and are ideal for big commercial premises. The LED aspect means they’re energy efficient and won’t have a negative impact on your energy bills.

Using CCTV & security lighting together
Security lighting alone without CCTV isn’t as effective. When it comes to security lighting you need to cover all aspects – even considering the burglars perspective. If you install security lighting above or nearby an entry point without a CCTV camera pointing in the same direction, you could actually be doing the criminal a favour. Some burglars won’t be put off by lighting alone and may actually favour it – after all you’re making their lives easier! For optimal protection security lighting should always be installed in harmony with a CCTV system. Some manufacturers offer security cameras with built in LED lights allowing you to save on installation costs.
