Does your drive and walkway feel unsafe after dark? Proper outdoor lighting will not only make it easier and safer to walk up to your house, but it can also double as security lighting to help deter crime. 

Create a more secure environment with Apollo Home’s professional security lighting installation services. We proudly service Greater Cincinnati, Dayton, Ohio, and Northern Kentucky. 

Benefits of Security Lights at Your Home

Installing security lighting around the house has a lot of benefits that not all homeowners think about:

  • Deters Crime: Bright light acts as a natural crime deterrent to burglars and trespassers alike who operate in the shadows. 
  • Increases Visibility: Better lighting makes it easier to navigate potential walking hazards such as objects, curbs, and ice. It also makes it a lot easier to get the key in the lock.
  • Enhances Curb Appeal: Strategically placed security lights can add a touch of elegance to your home’s exterior. 
  • Gives Peace of Mind: Knowing your property is well-lit can give you a sense of security and allow you to relax and enjoy your evenings. 

Apollo Home’s Expert Security Lighting Installation Services

Our expert electricians are certified, insured, and have undergone extensive training. We know how to professionally install outdoor security lighting and make it look nice. 

More than just expert installation, we know how to help you design an excellent outdoor lighting layout. A good security lighting design takes many factors into consideration, such as the following:

Security Lighting Placement

Lighting should be placed high up so nothing can easily reach them and knock them out. The higher the light fixture, the brighter the bulb should be. Ideally, light fixtures are shining downward. 

A good lighting design uses more medium-bright lights rather than just a few very bright ones. Lights should be placed above garages, decks, patios, front doors, and walkways. In your yard, consider lights along pathways, water features (to keep people from falling in), tall trees, and around your perimeter. 

Our experts will help you design your residential security lighting to keep your home lit and safe without blinding your neighbors. 

Types of Security Lights

There are many different types of outdoor lighting to choose from, such as:

  • Motion Sensor Lights: These lights turn on whenever they sense a heat signature—either humans or nocturnal creatures like raccoons. The suddenness of a motion sensor light flooding on can deter criminals. 
  • Timer Lights: These lights can be scheduled to turn on and off at specific times. This helps you not to forget to turn your lights on or off, and it can help you pretend someone is home even when you are away. 
  • Photocell Dawn-to-Dusk Lights: These turn on whenever their photocell cannot sense enough outdoor light, which means every time the sun sets, it turns on. Because they are light-sensitive, they, in effect, automatically adjust for daylight saving time and other lighting changes, such as cloudy weather.
  • Floodlights: Floodlights shine a lot of light on a specific area. They can be combined with any of the three options above and are great for careful lighting that doesn’t shine light directly into your neighbor’s home. 
  • Pathway Lights: These can light up any pathway. They add a wonderful ambiance and make walking up to your home safer. 

We’ll help you choose which lights and where those lights should be placed for maximum efficiency. Enhance your home’s security and your peace of mind with our professional security lighting installation services in Greater Cincinnati, Dayton, Ohio, and Northern Kentucky.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
