Security light / automatic lights

spaceage security systems

There are different kinds of security lights that can be used depending on the situations. To attract the attention of the passer-by, revolving lights are adequate.

Security lights get switched on whenever it detects an intruder within its field of view. Such systems may be based on PIR or Photosensitive sensors. A PIR may be connected to normal lights to make security lights (requires technical knowledge). Security lights are very useful to scare the intruders specially if these lights are employed in the compound or on the roof tops. When the lights are switched ON, the intruder feels that he has been detected and the owner is trying to confirm this. Normally this will deter the intruder for making any further attempt.

For safety and security of homes and offices specially when there is no one in the house automatic/timer based lights are very helpful. Such lights are automatically switched on after a predefined time. Normally, it is feasible to program these lights to switch ON or OFF at any particular time. However, if the house is going to be alone for a long time then a thief can see that the lights are switched on or off at the time same time every day (provided he is keeping a vigil over days). This may arise his suspicion and such a light may not be useful in such situations.

The advanced versions of security lights allow for setting up daily on/off a times for up to one week. This implies that you can vary a time for each day of a week when the lights can be switched on or off. With such an arrangement a person who is observing from outside the house will be under an impression that someone is in the house. Some of the advanced versions can switch on or off multiple electrical items e.g. it can switch on a TV as well as a light in room at night.

Another version switches the Lights ON and OFF at random.

The Telephone activated lights will switch ON/OFF by ringing the telephone in a particular sequence. Such lights allow that the owner can switch ON/OFF lights from a remote location using telephone lines. Such lights are not easily available in the market.
