Outdoor Security Lighting - NipperElectric

  • Light paths at night to prevent injuries from tripping or falling.
  • Light entrances and exits to deter attacks or break-ins.
  • Deter criminals from attempting break-ins in the first place. Well-lit homes or businesses aren’t targeted like buildings with dark areas and shadows.
  • Alert staff or family to break-ins or suspicious activity. Activated motion sensors give people time to call the police and/or find a place to stay safe.
  • Lower insurance premiums in some business and homeowner policies.

Outdoor Security Lighting Options

Many options are available when it comes to outdoor security lighting. Depending on your building, you may need different lighting in different places. Nipper Electric offers services for many different types of exterior security lighting including:

  • Flood lights
  • Motion sensor lights, including outdoor security-lights with cameras.
  • Security lights for homes.
  • Commercial security lighting.
  • Outdoor security lighting LED designs.
  • Solar security lights for exterior lighting.

Don’t be overwhelmed, we will help you through every stage of your home or business security lighting installation. To begin with here are a few main designs to choose from.

Motion Sensors

Old motion sensors triggered with the wag of the family dog’s tail. They were unreliable and annoying for many. Advanced technology turned motion sensors into practical, reliable alert systems. Today’s motion sensors use infrared or sonic technology to detect danger.

  • Infrared Sensors: Depend on electrical signals known as infrared sensors. Infrared is the scientific term for heated rays. Infrared sensors are either active or passive.
    • Active Infrared Sensors use a beam of light continually tied to another source. When the beam is interrupted, the light triggers.
    • Passive Infrared Sensors detect heat from person or animal as they pass. The light activates after it detects the heat. These are the most popular outdoor motion sensors used today.
  • Sonic Detectors: These sensors work on sound waves that don’t register to humans. Sonic sensors also are active or passive.
    • Active Sonic Detectors send out sound waves that bounce off other surfaces and return. When something disrupts the return of the sound waves, the light is triggered.
    • Passive Sonic Detectors wait for sounds to occur. When a sound is detected, the light is triggered.
  • Motion Sensor Cameras: These security cameras are available in sonic or infrared technology. The cameras activate the same way lights do and at the same time.

Many motion sensor lights and cameras come with settings. You can individually set your lights to meet your needs and even have a manual override, so you aren’t wasting time or energy. Nipper Electric can find the right equipment and the right setting for you.

Outdoor Security Light Bulb Options

Choosing the right light bulb is important to your security too. Today’s green technology creates many energy efficient options. Remember to choose a bulb that is not too bright. This may seem strange, but an overly bright light will actually add deep shadows where intruders can hide.
Light bulb options vary, but top choices are CFLs (Compact Fluorescent Lights), LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) and solar lights.

  • CFLs are long-lasting. However, they don’t become bright immediately. They also fail in cold climates and don’t work in some motion sensors.
  • LEDs are long lasting (up to 18 years), work in all weather and are very energy efficient. The initial installation and equipment is more expensive, but in the end they save consumers up to 75% on their bills.
  • Solar Lights are low cost. Solar technology has improved to practical use. Still, solar lights rely on solar energy. Photovoltaic panels used remotely on the roof absorb energy during the day. Installation costs more, but during use, you save a ton.

Trey Nipper and his team were a pleasure to work with. We did a whole house renovation and Nipper Electric rewired the whole house, installed about 100 LED can lights, kitchen and bath lighting, outdoor house lights, reworked our electric panel, and several other parts of the job. Trey was always available and he was helpful in the placement of all of our lights. They were reasonably priced and were easy to work with. We highly recommend Nipper Electric.read more

I come from a perspective of "things happen." And unfortunately something did. When I called Nipper, a he-said, she-said situation arose with my tenant that could have turned ugly. Nipper didn't go there. I was very pleased with the way they responded to my call. Now I could see how they handled an adverse situation. And I get be them very High marks! I have several rentals; and I will definitely used them again. Their pricing is very fair.read more

Reasonable price, quality work and exceptional customer service/relations! My wife and I were expecting a baby any day when we encountered an electrical issue in the nursery that we needed fixed as soon as possible. I called Nipper Electric and Trey Nipper called me back 10 minutes later. They were able to send out a technician who found and fixed the issue the same day. Given our busy schedule with baby planning, it was a relief to work with a company like Nipper who took care of our issue quickly. We will definitely be using Nipper Electric in the future. If you are in the search for an electrician, your search is over... just give Nipper Electric a call.read more

Nipper Electric is by far the best electrician company I have ever hired. Trey and his guys ROCK! They do such exemplary work every time. Last fall, they rewired practically our entire home and modernized our system in the walls, meters, lighting, ceiling fans, outlets, under-counter lighting. You name it; they do it. Such a class act and so professional, GRADE "A" WORK. I can't say enough about this organization and their crew. From start to finish, they dealt with all the inspections, went above and beyond the norm. We just had Nipper Electric back at our home yesterday with outside lighting, more indoor work, and, once again, their work is exceptional. My Mom hired them to rework her under-counter lighting that was put in by another "not-up-to-par" electrician less than a year ago. She was so unhappy with her only 9-month old under-counter lighting that she decided to hire Nipper Electric because of the great work they did for my brother and me. And she is so happy with her new under-counter lighting replacement by Nipper Electric. She only wishes my brother and I had found them before she had her kitchen lighting installed. She's so happy now! And my brother and I are again giving rave reviews to Nipper Electric. Thank you Trey, Zach and Jessie. We feel like you guys are friends now! Thanks, Nancy Y. Smithread more

I was extremely impressed with this company, beginning with the VP, Trey, who came to my home to assess my particular situation, which was to convert a Fiberstars fiberoptic pool light to an LED light. Trey is highly intelligent and willing to take the time to research the situation at hand and study the data I had managed to collect for this undertaking. The electricians, Zack and Jessie, who came to do the work were also highy professional, congenial, hard-working, and knowledgeable and completed the task iwith exceptional efficiency in spite of the fact that they had never done such a conversion before. I am delighted with the outcome and would highly recommend Nipper Electric for any of your electrical needs.read more

Trey and Zack installed a variety of lights all over our home. The installation included wall sconces, recessed ceiling lights, combo bathroom exhaust/light fans, and under counter kitchen led lights. Their work was very professionally done, without any setbacks. They cleaned up after the job was finished and left our house spotless. You can't go wrong with this company.read more
