How Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect YouHow Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect You: Budget

Low voltage landscape lighting is often a do-it-yourself project and there are many options to suit your budget.

Landscape lighting is also more affordable than ever coming in dozens of styles at a wide range of prices. Although it is tempting to purchase the cheaper incandescent lighting systems, in the long run the compact fluorescent options are better. Incandescent lamps will last for between 750 to 1000 hours.

Halogens will last for 3500 to 5000 hours. But fluorescent lamps will last for as much as 10,000 hours. Because low voltage fluorescent light fittings have a lower power consumption than incandescent or halogens this makes them more desirable. Fluorescent light fittings also last longer than any other light fitting because they do not get as hot.

How Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect YouHow Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect You: Solar Lighting

An alternative to low voltage lighting are solar lights. Solar landscape lighting stores energy captured during the day and then when it becomes dark enough, the outside lighting switches on automatically and stay on all night until they run out of battery power.

A very good point is that solar lighting dose not use any wiring or external power source Unfortunately the disadvantages of solar lighting is that they give out very low levels of lighting and this gets dimmer as the night goes on.

Now that we got that out of the way let us continue with some more tips.

How Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect YouHow Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect You: Installation

Low voltage landscape lighting is easy to install even if you’ve never done any electrical installations before. The easiest are prewired lighting systems. These are low voltage light fittings that come completely prewired and ready to install, with weather proof transformers, sealed connectors and pre-installed lamps. All you need to do is place each light fitting that is connected to a string of wire, where you want it, connect the transformer to the mains voltage and turn it on.

It’s that simple.
Separately wired low voltage light fittings and transformers should only be installed by persons that have the experience to do so. It is recommended that these installations should be carried out by a qualified electrician.
Remember that during the installation it is desirable to include a timer or a daylight sensor so that the lighting is automatically switched off during daylight hours.
Normally landscape lighting is added after the landscaping has been completed. With this in mind it would be a good idea to lay conduits or ducts into your garden. This would minimize any trench digging when it came time to run your low voltage wiring. Map out where you think you will want your light fittings and lay conduits or ducts to suit.

 

How Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect YouHow Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect You: Design

Once the layout of the landscape has been established, it is very important to plan the placement of your landscape lighting. Lighting can focus on aspects in your landscape which are special to you, such as garden art, a water feature, or an unusual planting.

Create a point of interest by highlighting a particular tree, shrub, or architectural aspect of you landscape with a flood light placed at ground level and focused upward. Combinations of light and shadow can create dramatic effects in complete contrast to the daylight scene.

Lighting around pools can create a nice mirroring effect off the water or create a tropical feel. Lighting can hide obvious landscape problems while accentuating positive features. Landscape lighting design is very similar to the design of the landscape itself. Most landscape architects will include a lighting scheme with their design.

How Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect You: Lighting For Your Landscape

Landscape lighting is a rising trend for most home owners wanting to illuminate their homes at night time. Landscape lighting is better described as painting with light and is about beautifying all that is natural or man made in a landscaped setting around the home.

Landscape lighting is no longer a luxury item for the average to up market neighborhood.

 

How Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect You: Should Be Used Subtly

 

Landscape lighting is most effective when used in limited, subtle ways. If designed correctly it can be an extension of your home décor and can extend the use of outdoor spaces to the home while providing safety, atmosphere and space definition.

It can also be most effective is hiding unwanted features such as trash cans or compost bins. Landscape lighting is used to bring trees and scrubs to life at night and extenuate features around your home that are not visible or obvious during the day time.

 

How Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect YouHow Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect You: Ways It Can Be Used

 

If used correctly low level lighting can be used to illuminate pathways and stairs for safety and security. Landscape lighting allows you to enjoy your garden and exterior amenities of your home even after the sun has set.

 

How Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect You: Security
Landscape lighting is one of the best security systems you can install. Landscape lighting can be used as a deterrent to residential crime. Correct proportions of landscape lighting surrounding your home, has been shown to minimize crimes by as much as fifty percent.

Landscape lighting has two great uses to aid in the security of your home. The lighting can intimidate possible intruders to avoid trespassing on to your property.

Should this fail, the illuminated areas will also make it possible for you or your neighbor’s to see any intruders as they trespass.

How Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect You: Safety
Typically low voltage lighting systems are used for landscape lighting around the home. The preferred light fittings used to create landscape lighting, are low voltage, weather resistant fixtures.

The low voltage used reduces the risk of electrocution if live wiring or terminals are touched.

Also if power supply transformers are used to reduce the voltage, then they also isolate the low voltage system from the mains voltage which increases safety.


How Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect YouHow Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect You: Not Just The Garden

Although landscape lighting brings your garden and exterior amenities to life at night time, facade or feature lighting to the exterior of your home should also be considered. If the landscaping has been done correctly it should compliment the house properly during the day.

Why not extend the landscape lighting to the exterior surfaces of the home as well. Narrow beamed lighting that highlights sharp features and wide angled flood lighting to pick up flat surfaces are preferred.

These two simple methods create pools of light and shadows that will transform a house that may be uninteresting during the day, and make it come to life at night.

How Safes Add Another Layer of Security to Homes and Businesses: There Is More In Store In The Sequel

We have covered a good amount of information in part 1 and this article will be a continuation of it. If you have not read part 1, I would recommend that you click here to read it and get all the information and augment what you have learned here. Don’t worry you can always come back because it will be brought up in another screen.

With that out of the way, lets go forward.

 

How Safes Add Another Layer of Security to Homes and BusinessesHow Safes Add Another Layer of Security to Homes and Businesses: Lets Make The Safe Not So Obvious Please

 

There are many companies that specialize in making safes inconspicuous so that the casual observer wouldn’t even realize it was in your home.

In fact, a dedicated professional can make them almost completely undetectable when combined with the efforts of a skilled carpenter and they can fit in amazing spaces if secrecy is of utmost importance for the safe keeping of your documents and information.

Even those who live and work along side you every day can be oblivious to the existence of the safe if that is your wish and you are willing to pay the price of having a hidden safe installed.

 

How Safes Add Another Layer of Security to Homes and Businesses: Yes There Are Other Types Of Safes

 

Other safes that offer security to your home and/or business (depending on what kind of business you are in, of course) are gun safes.

Quite frankly, in the world in which we live the idea of having guns out in the open and freely available to anyone who walks in the door is not only irresponsible but in some cases criminal.

It is wise, for those who own guns to have a gun safe in which to store those weapons, keep it locked, and store ammunition elsewhere.

Guns do not provide adequate defense for homes or business and this should be kept in mind when it comes to security.

In many cases each year those who attempt to use their guns for home security only manage to provide another weapon to the intruder rather than managing to secure their belongings or protect their families.

 

How Safes Add Another Layer of Security to Homes and BusinessesHow Safes Add Another Layer of Security to Homes and Businesses: Final Thoughts

 

Safes can provide great protection and security for homes and businesses when properly used and guarded. Safes offer little protection however if everyone and their brother knows the location and/or the combination to the safe. You should keep that information closely guarded in order to receive the maximum security that owning a safe can provide.

How Safes Add Another Layer of Security to Homes and Businesses: Safes Can Be A Good Investment In Your Security

We live in a day and age, sadly, when information is probably one of the most precious commodities on the planet.

More specifically, personal information, such as social security numbers and tax identification numbers are worth their weights in gold in some instances and should be highly guarded, prized, and valued.

This information in the wrong hands can lead to financial and personal nightmares the likes of which few are every truly prepared to experience.

 

How Safes Add Another Layer of Security to Homes and BusinessesHow Safes Add Another Layer of Security to Homes and Businesses: Be Aware Of Things Like Employee Turnovers

There are many businesses, particularly those that experience high and brief employee turnover rates that are often targeted specifically for the employee information more than the money that may be hidden away in the companies cash drawers or the merchandise that may be contained inside.

The information in the right hands is worth far more than the merchandise and much more difficult to trace when all is said and done.

How Safes Add Another Layer of Security to Homes and BusinessesHow Safes Add Another Layer of Security to Homes and Businesses: The Large Safe To The Rescue

Many companies that keep this information on their computer systems are also targeted. However, the targeting of this specific information is what is prompting many companies to closely safeguard this information, for the protection of present and past employees including current management.

One way in which they are doing this is by purchasing large safes in which to store the information. Many businesses are going one step further however and purchasing hidden safes that aren’t immediately recognizable for what they are. This adds yet another layer of protection and security to employees that may otherwise feel vulnerable to identity theft.

When it comes to security for homes rather than businesses safes provide a great way to protect not only important documents but also jewelry, letters, gold, virtually anything of value that will fit into the safe. Another great thing about safes in order to protect valuables in the home is that most safes are also virtually fire proof.

This means that the valuables held in the safe are likely to survive in the event that a fire ravages your home. Not only will a safe offer the security of “safe guarding” your possessions but also your piece of mind by allowing you to know that the important documents and information (including insurance papers) are kept safe from prying eyes and those with evil intentions.

What You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home Security Part 2

How Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect You

What You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home Security: There Is More In Store For You

Welcome back we had covered some basic things to help you to save money on home security costs. If you have not read part 1, I would encourage to click to read some of the tips and you can return here to read the information that will be provided below.

 

What You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home SecurityWhat You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home Security: Is A Basic Security System For You?

 

The answer is probably not. Basic systems only cover your doors and are supplemented by the use of a motion detector. This detector is usually mounted in the main hallway to catch a burglar crossing the center of the home.

If they come through a bedroom window and never pass by the motion detector, the alarm system will never sound. Imagine being home at the time this happens.

Basic security systems are best used as a deterrent to a break in and to notify the authorities  an alarm condition exist.

Adding perimeter protection such as window contacts or glass break detectors should be high on the list of upgrades. These types of upgrades not only activate the alarm system instantly but also will give you  piece of mind while you are home.

 

What You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home SecurityWhat You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home Security: Protect Your Financial Interest Not Just Your Home

Get all quotes in writing and make sure the quote is a binding quote. At a minimum the following should be included in your contract.

Length of contract and if / how it renews.  Does it renew automatically? What type of notice do you have to give to terminate the monitoring agreement

Will your fee increase and is there a limit on the increase. If at all possible lock in your monitoring fee for the entire contract otherwise you could see an increase every year. Don’t be afraid to walk away on this point alone.

Do you own the equipment or is it a lease? A lease means lower initial installation cost but high monitoring fees.

 

What You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home SecurityWhat You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home Security: Warranty
Most of the alarm equipment comes with it’s own warranty in addition to what is offered by your company. Specify the warranty for each item so that you aren’t charged if it fails.
Also specify how long the warranty on labor is. Expect to pay some labor cost for replacing under warranty items.

 

 

What You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home Security: Service Calls
Alarm technicians are usually well trained to diagnose and fix problems with your security system. Be prepared to pay in the neighborhood of $55 per hour. The fee can seem high when compared to your original installation cost but is not out of line. Think about how much you pay for your car or computer to be worked on.

How long is the response time to service your alarm system?
48 hours is a reasonable time.

Do they provide an installation certificate for your home owner’s insurance
Many insurance companies offer a discount for monitored home security systems.

 

What You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home Security: Final Thoughts

Don’t Wait Until You Have A Break-In To Get An Alarm System!

You can replace most things but you may never replace your sense of security in your own home.

How Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect You

What You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home Security: It Actually Has Become Easier

Monitoring your home security system has never been easier but there are several things you need to consider before committing yourself to a long term monitoring agreement with any alarm company.

What You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home SecurityWhat You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home Security: Money Is Actually In The Contract

Alarm companies don’t make the majority of their profit from selling security systems, it comes from accumulating a large base of alarm-monitoring contracts. In fact these monitoring contracts are so profitable that they are frequently bought and sold like mortgage notes.

What You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home Security: Unleash The Tips

What You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home Security Tip #1: Ask if they are an authorized alarm dealer or a represent a marketing company
Marketing companies have learned to flood a market with fantastic offers on security systems with the sole purpose of selling the contracts at a profit.

They often use any sub-contractor available, which can lead to poor customer service once the marketing company leaves town.

Once you find a reputable alarm company ask them to come out to your home and give you a quote. You’ll find that most will quote you a basic security system at a reasonable price.

These basic security systems generally include an control panel, keypad, motion detector, a couple of door contacts, inside siren, a yard sign and warning decals.

What You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home SecurityWhat You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home Security Tip #2: Make sure the equipment can be monitored by any alarm company not by just the one selling it to you

If they use proprietary security equipment,  you could be left in a bind should you become dissatisfied with their service for any reason.  Ademco, DSC,& Caddx are well known manufacturers and can be monitored by any one.

Some companies offer low a low installation charge of $99.00 or will give you a “FREE” security system. Many do so if you put a security sign in your yard for advertising purposes and commit to a long-term alarm-monitoring contract.

Since the installation charge doesn’t cover the true cost of the equipment and labor, you are charged a substantial monthly fee to recoup their investment. These “deals” or equipment leases aren’t necessarily bad but make it hard to evaluate the true cost to you over time.

The best way to evaluate your contract is to ask the salesman to give you a quote to purchase the security system outright and show the home alarm-monitoring fee separately. Most of the time you are better off buying the alarm system because your monitoring fee will be much less.

For example. Say for $99 your monitoring fee is $35 per month for 3 years
you total cost for monitoring your home alarm is $1359.00 Your fee
will remain $35 per month or even increase.

On the other hand say you pay  $599.00 installation and $20 dollars a month your total cost is $1319. Not only is your overall cost less but from year 3 on your will be saving $180 per year.  This savings would be better spent on upgrading your alarm system to include fire monitoring and added perimeter protection

 

How You Are Inviting Security Breeches to Your Home or BusinessWhat You Should Know In Order To Save Money On Home Security Tip #3  Don’t pay additional charges for medical or fire monitoring
It’s ok to pay for the equipment needed but some companies charge $2-$5 extra for these services.  These options are easily programmed into the alarm system and don’t require any additional effort to monitor.

How Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect You

How You Are Inviting Security Breeches to Your Home or Business : Don’t Expose Your Business To Security Risk

Security is one of the most important things in life in the world of today.

Not only do we seek to protect our families but also (as business owners) our employees from unnecessary disruptions in daily lives and exposures to risk.

For this reason it is important that we eliminate potential security risks in order to protect all whom we hold near and dear.

How You Are Inviting Security Breeches to Your Home or BusinessHow You Are Inviting Security Breeches to Your Home or Business: Obtain A Proper Security System

A proper security system for our homes and businesses is often a good start.

There are many reasons why this is important and several reasons in which this could work for the overall good of the family and the working environment.

First of all, in a family situation there need to be individual alarm codes that are changed on a regular basis (preferably whenever a teen changes boy/girlfriends or has a falling out with best friends in order to insure maximum safety).

In a business setting key-cards work well in order to insure that each employee has an identifying and unique code.

Many instances of misconduct, theft, and property damage done to businesses each year is the result of disgruntled employees rather than outsiders.

How You Are Inviting Security Breeches to Your Home or BusinessHow You Are Inviting Security Breeches to Your Home or Business: Minimize The Darkness

Another thing that homes and businesses need to keep in mind is that a dark building or home is an invitation to those who would invade.

Darkness is the friend of those who would like to enter unseen and unnoticed.

Make a practice of leaving some sort of lights on in the interior of the home or business in order to allow passersby to see inside.

If this is a habit policeman driving by will be more likely to notice that it is out of the ordinary for the lights to be off as well as having lights on allows them to see inside for potential prowlers or misconduct.

 

How You Are Inviting Security Breeches to Your Home or Business: Don’t Obstruct Your View

Do not allow shrubbery or small trees to obstruct the view of the windows from the road. This is where intruders prefer to make their entrances.

If nosey neighbors and prying eyes have a clear line of sight to these windows it is less likely that intruders will find them to be attractive points of entry.

This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have bushes or small trees near your home just keep them adequately trimmed so that they are not blocking the windows or other potential entry points to your home or business.

 

How You Are Inviting Security Breeches to Your Home or BusinessHow You Are Inviting Security Breeches to Your Home or Business: You Might Be Giving The Intruders Ammunition

Do not allow tools to be left lying around that offer intruders the means by which to invade your home or business.

Ladders and pry bars should never be left out in the open as they will imply invitation to those who may not have otherwise noticed your property as a potential target.

Most home invasions are matters of opportunity more than anything else.

Do not provide them with the perfect opportunity.

 

How You Are Inviting Security Breeches to Your Home or BusinessHow You Are Inviting Security Breeches to Your Home or Business: Increase Your Lighting To Your Location

Lighting is another deterrent for potential intruders. Install plenty of lighting around the exterior of your home or business.

Motion sensor lighting is an excellent choice for this as it isn’t always on but will draw attention when it comes on.

Solar lighting just below the windows surrounding your home or business also provides some added degree of security without incurring additional electricity bills.

 

How You Are Inviting Security Breeches to Your Home or Business: Bells And Whistles Included

For businesses that have an open front door policy in order for clients to walk in, install chimes or doorbells that allow staff to be aware that people have either entered the building or left the building.

The chimes usually alert the staff and encourage eye contact as well as the ability to identify those who would attack and/or invade.

It also makes staff more aware of if or when those who entered have left (minimizing the risk of locking intruders in the building unaware).

 

How You Are Inviting Security Breeches to Your Home or Business: Final Thoughts

Little things make a big difference when it comes to security for your home or business.

Take some or all of the steps mentioned above and apply them to your home and business.

They will not only make your family, employees, and property safer but will in many cases help them feel more secure as well.

Extra Security for Homes and Businesses With Exterior Lighting

How Low Voltage Landscape Lighting Can Help Protect You

Extra Security for Homes and Businesses With Exterior Lighting: Considering Protecting Your Home and Business

We all want to keep our homes and businesses safe and well protected. There are many ways in which this can be accomplished.

One, rather simple, method for assisting in this goal is often overlooked by the multitudes but is one of the most effective measures that can be taken in order to protect not only the property from intruders but also to protect those on the property from unnecessary injury due to an inability to see what is going on in the exterior after hours.

 

 Extra Security for Homes and Businesses With Exterior LightingExtra Security for Homes and Businesses With Exterior Lighting: Less Lighting, More Attention From Unwanted Guest

Seriously, poor lighting can make a home or business a much more attractive target than the house next door which has adequate exterior lighting.

Home intruders may on occasion not be the sharpest tools in the shed but those who are successful in this line of work are only successful because they do understand the laws of opportunity.

A dark shady area that is concealed from the view of others presents a far more attractive target to would be intruders than a well-lit and revealing access point into a home.

 Extra Security for Homes and Businesses With Exterior Lighting: What’s In Your Plan?

When designing the security plan for your home and business you really need to try and think like a criminal. If you were going to break into your home or business where would you try to gain entry?

Those are the areas that need to be well lit and offer little in the way of concealment opportunities for those that would attempt to make an uninvited entrance.

Do not build storage sheds near windows and doors. Instead, keep them away from these areas. Storage units provide concealment and shadow in areas where this should not be desired.

 Extra Security for Homes and Businesses With Exterior LightingExtra Security for Homes and Businesses With Exterior Lighting: Not All Security Is Simply From Invasion

 

You should also be concerned about the health and welfare of those who live and work in your home or business.

Having the area surrounding your home and business will not only reveal intruders but also obstacles, holes, and etc. that could pose risks of injury in addition to potential intruders.

You should also keep in mind that not all intruders have only possessions in mind when they make their grand entrance.

Making your home or business uninviting as a ‘pit stop’ for these criminal elements also makes it safer for your family, friends, coworkers, and employees.

You do not need to light up your home or business like a military installation in order to achieve the very security you seek.

 

 Extra Security for Homes and Businesses With Exterior Lighting: Motion Lights

 

Motion sensor lights that only light up the area in which motion is detected can prove basic enough protection in many cases without inviting the neighbors to complain about the never-ending daylight you manage to create.

 

 Extra Security for Homes and Businesses With Exterior Lighting Extra Security for Homes and Businesses With Exterior Lighting: Rope Lights

Rope lights provide low level and decorative lights but they also invite passersby to take a look at your property.

This in itself makes your property unattractive to intruders if there is any kind of regular traffic in your neighborhood or an active number of neighbors that walk dogs, star gaze, or engage in any other nocturnal activities.

 

 Extra Security for Homes and Businesses With Exterior Lighting: Decorative Lights
