Landscape Lighting for Winter? It’s a Smart Idea.

Stay Safe While Your Indiana Home Remains Brightly Lit

Landscape Lighting for Winter? It’s a Smart Idea.

Pulling up to your home after a long day at work can feel like you’re entering a haunted house in the dead of winter. The nights get darker earlier, last longer, and are altogether colder and less inviting. Who wants to arrive home to stumbling in the driveway and possibly slipping in the pitch-black darkness?

With landscape lighting on your property, you can completely light up your surroundings and ensure safety for everyone.

Read on to learn how adding outdoor lighting control can improve the convenience, security and curb appeal of your Fort Wayne, Indiana home.

Light the Way to Your Front Door

If you’re coming home after dark, the walk from the car to the house can be tricky, especially as snow and ice start covering the pathways. Now as you arrive home, your lighting control system’s motion sensors can tell when your car pulls into the driveway. The outdoor lights will then turn on for you as you gather your things out of the car.

No need to fumble for your keys or use your phone as a flashlight! Not only will your driveway light up, but you can have a bright walkway to your door, ensuring you can clearly see your way safely inside.

A Safer Home with Smart Lighting

Not only can you keep yourself from wandering in the dark, but you can also maintain your property’s safety. Dark, unoccupied-looking homes are a burglar’s prime targets, but smart lighting can help keep thieves at bay. Having landscape lighting on your property means there will be nowhere for thieves to hide as they case your property.

By linking your home’s automation system with your lighting, the system can turn the lights on and off using a preset schedule designed to mimic regular use. This means that if a thief is casing your neighborhood looking for unoccupied homes, they’ll assume you’re inside because the lights are on. They’ll move on to easier targets, leaving your home untouched.

Bump Up Your Curb Appeal

Along with its practical features, landscape lighting also helps your home stand out from the other neighborhood houses. Depending on the hour of the day, or throughout each sunset’s interval, your lighting can automatically shift to accentuate every beautiful angle and architecture of your home.

Especially in January after the Christmas lights are gone, evenings are usually dark and gloomy. But your home can banish the gloom with tasteful outdoor lighting. 

You can choose between floodlights, spotlights and wall sconces, and we can help you place everything in proper spots to give your home the perfectly lit look. 

Landscape lighting control is ideal for your safety but also for the added luxury and charm your Fort Wayne home deserves!  Give us a call today at (260) 724-2276 or fill out our contact form below to learn more about this smart outdoor technology.  We’d love to hear from you!
