Outdoor LED Lighting
Outdoor LED lighting is recommended for all outdoor purposes because:

It is superior for energy conservation.
It outlasts all other types of lighting.
Outdoor Security Lighting
A well-lit home or business is much safer than a building without adequate outdoor lighting. Security lighting in Northern VA greatly decreases the odds of criminal activity and is typically brighter than the average porch light. Well-placed security lights emphasize entrances, exits, and other potential entry points, helping to prevent accidents and property damage. These lights can also aid in the footage quality of on-site security cameras.
Troubleshooting Security Lighting
The lights won’t turn off. Motion sensors trigger lighting to turn on when they detect movement and shut off after a pre-set amount of time in the absence of movement. It is common for power surges to cause the lighting to turn on and stay on.
Security lights don’t turn on at all. When lights do not turn on at all, one potential cause is lighting from another source striking the motion sensor. This is also a potential cause for lighting with a dusk-to-dawn feature.
Flickering security lights. If the problem is occurring in only one light, check the bulb and try to tighten it. If the flickering continues, try replacing the bulb. However, if multiple light bulbs are flickering in a single light fixture or multiple light fixtures are flickering, the issue will likely be an electrical one.
Outdoor Lighting Ideas and Tips
The best advice on general lighting is not to overdo it. Bright lighting is the purpose of the general post light, overhead lighting, and security lighting. The goal of ambient lighting is to provide soft, welcoming illumination.
Remember, when it comes to deck lighting for steps and stairs or when using path lights, stagger them from left to right to provide slightly overlapping light without dark spaces in between. Lighted steps and paths with adequate walking space ensure your guests’ safety and help prevent falls and injury.
