When it comes to protecting your home and your family, security lighting does a good job as a simple yet effective prevention measure against intrusions or other criminal activity on or to your property. It will definitely aid in the detection of intruders, to deter intruders, or in some cases simply to increase the feeling of safety. However, it does not offer any real protection if something really does happen. Lighting security is a deterrent and should be used as such. Only a surveillance security camera can assist you in seeking retribution against the offenders.
