Use LED Lighting to Cost-Effectively Improve Security at Your Commercial Property

Safety and Security are Dependent on Proper Lighting

Lighting is a key factor in promoting security at your commercial property. Poor lighting can put the safety of your employees, customers, and assets at risk. LED lighting is a proven-successful, cost-effective solution for minor to significant security problems at commercial, industrial, and multi-family residential properties.

Security lighting has a variety of applications, depending on the nature of the business and where it's located. Business owners may implement a lighting strategy to accomplish any or all of the following:

To accomplish these goals, it may be necessary to increase the light level in some areas and add lighting where there previously was none. While some security measures may be cost-prohibitive, LED lighting is a cost-effective solution that no business owner or property manager should ignore.

LED Lighting is the Affordable Solution for Protecting People and Property

While there are costs associated with retrofitting or replacing fluorescent, HID, and other types of lighting with LED lighting, the overall savings are impossible to ignore. LED lighting can cut energy bills by more than 80% - a huge savings for any business.

LED bulbs used for security purposes may last up to four times longer than conventional bulbs, with lifespans of between 50,000 to 100,000 hours. Obviously, this saves money on bulb replacement, but there is a hidden savings which is even more beneficial. The labor cost to replace commercial lighting can really add up! Changing one bulb often requires the use of a lift and an experienced technician. By using LED security lighting, your company can cut both your energy costs and bulb replacement costs to a fraction of what you used to pay.

Another attractive feature of LED security lighting is the ability to turn lights on and off using motion activated sensors. This extends bulb life and cuts energy costs.

You may also save on your business insurance premiums. Many insurance companies offer discounts to businesses that use proper security lighting.

Use Security Lighting to Attract and Use Security Lighting to Repel

Security lighting serves a twofold business purpose: attracting customers while repelling those with nefarious intentions or whose actions may negatively impact your business operations.

It's important that customers feel safe when they patronize a business, so parking lots, parking garages, and entryways must be well lit. Failure to provide adequate security lighting may mean losing business, and could be a business liability if someone were to suffer injury. Lighting that attracts customers can have a direct influence on your company’s bottom line.

Lighting may also act as a deterrent. Police agree, persons intent on nefarious activity seek out the cover of darkness and are repelled when an area is well lit. In certain applications, motion sensors are excellent for managing costs, delivering bright lights only when you need them. Few things will scare away a burglar faster than a bright spotlight suddenly shining directly over their head.

There are other forms of negative activity that may be deterred with LED lighting. Some businesses have problems with loitering or "camping," which is when groups of people congregate illegally near a commercial building. While many deterrents may fail to remedy this situation, bright lighting has been proven effective in cities all over America.
