Security lighting is a highly effective preventative measure that you can take for home or workplace security. This may include outdoor motion lights or other such lighting for burglary deterrence and night time security purposes.
Once security lighting is installed, you will be rewarded with a sense of safety.
Intruders, no matter their intention, do not like lights on at night. It will expose them and will most certainly deter them.
UNC Charlotte’s Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology conducted a study of over 400 incarcerated burglars to uncover what motivates them and if there were any specific deterrents that they encountered. One of the most commonly mentioned deterrents was a lack of hiding spots available on well-lit properties.
