Security lighting is essential for every home. Even if you live in a gated community, security lighting helps to ensure your family and guests are less likely to experience a fall and injury. For most homeowners, security lighting is also a deterrent against burglary, home invasion and vandalism. Criminals are less inclined to target a well lit home, because they and their vehicles are more likely to be identified. The types of lighting used for security are generally brighter than the standard outdoor lighting. It is strategically placed in the areas most likely to be targeted for entrance, and/or injury of a family member outdoors. Typical areas where security lighting is installed includes entrances, areas monitored by security cameras, outside garages and other potential entrance points such as gates and lower floor windows.

Security lighting can experience issues, and some are more common than others. If you are having problems the following are likely some of them:
Security Lights Will Not Go Off
Motion sensor lights are designed to turn on when the sensor detects movement and turns off after the specific amount of time you select. Sometimes, the motion sensor lights stay on, typically after a power outage or a power surge.
If the security lights are plugged into an exterior outlet, unplug them and allow them to reset. If you are unable to unplug them, turn off the breaker serving the lights for a few minutes, then turn the breaker back on. In addition, check for trigger objects in the vicinity, such as a flag, ornamental windmill or other moving objects that may be triggering the light to stay on.
Security Lights Will Not Turn On
One common cause for security lights not turning on is light striking the sensor from another source, such as a street light. Cover the sensor with your hand and the light should turn on. If this works, try to identify the source of the light striking the sensor, and change the direction of the light, or the position of the sensor if possible. Mister Sparky licensed electricians provide the electrical services you require.
Flickering lights may be due to a variety of causes. The first step is to ensure the bulb is firmly screwed in. Bulbs can loosen over time due to the expansion and contraction of heat. Otherwise, try replacing the bulb. If replacing the bulb does not stop flickering lights, the problem is likely to be an electrical issue.
