How Solar Security Lights can Improve Your Home’s Safety

Posted in: , | October 16, 2019

When planning outdoor lighting solutions for your home, make safety a top priority. You don’t want your family or guests to feel uneasy when they’re walking to and from their car at night.

A solar security light provides visibility for people who often trip and stumble over obstacles at night. These fixtures also grant an area of safety with their brightness and motion-sensing technology. When you install a solar security light on your property, you can rest easy at night knowing that you will be able to see any dangers coming your way.  Learn more about the benefits of solar powered security lighting below.

Benefits of Solar Powered Security Lights

Shines Brightly Through The Night

The appeal of any security light stems from its ability to provide clear visibility through the night. When shopping for a solar security light, brightness and operating time are key deciding factors.

Gama Sonic recommends a brightness of 700-1300 lumens for a solar security floodlight. But a bright solar light won’t be effective if it stops running after only a few hours. Depending on the fixture, our solar security lights can run up to 12 hours on a fully charged battery. Solar lights that operate on motion sensing technology will turn on for 60-second intervals up to 150 times each night.

Solar security lights will deter late-night critters and teenagers from breaking curfew. You can finally enjoy a quiet, peaceful night of relaxation.

Easy to Install and Maintain

Installing a solar security light is easy. Find an area that receives plenty of sunlight during the day, and secure the fixture. An electrical light would force you to deal with the hassle of digging and trenching to hide wires. You will most likely have to hire someone else to properly install an electrical light. Solar security lights will save you time and money due to its simple installation capabilities.

These solar-powered fixtures can be implemented in more creative places. You don’t have to deal with limits that come with existing wiring. The lights can be installed in areas where electrical wires can’t go or would be unsafe, like on an off-grid cabin or close to a body of water.

A solar security light requires little maintenance. Your only concern is ensuring that the fixture receives plenty of sunlight. Dust, pollen, and snow will accumulate on the solar panel through the seasons. Wipe off these materials as needed. A solar light will operate year-round with its easy installation and maintenance.

Weather Resistant and Resilient

A solar security light contains crucial features like a solid frame and quality construction. The Gama Sonic GS-201 and GS-101 solar security lights feature a sturdy resin finish that won’t rust and an IP65 weather rating. These lights will operate through the seasons, no matter the weather. Poor-quality lights may fail you when you need them most due to regular wear. Gama Sonic’s solar security lights won’t let you down in that regard.

Motion Sensors Deter Home Invaders

The key function of a solar security light is to protect your home from unwanted guests. Having a light with a motion sensor will help decrease your risk of a home invasion. In a dimly-lit neighborhood, a midnight thief will be confident in their endeavors. When they approach your home and solar security light, they will be caught off guard by the sudden spotlight.

With a wide range of detection and coverage area, a Gama Sonic solar security light will make any home invader think twice. When this wrongdoer knows that you can see them coming, they will leave your property.
