For many people, arriving home after dark can be an uncomfortable feeling. If you find yourself concerned about dark or recessed areas on your property, a few motion sensor lights can make a world of difference. Outdoor security lights provide valuable peace of mind by scaring away potential intruders and illuminating walkways to help you avoid trips and falls.

Where Should you Install Security Lights?

Security lights can be installed anywhere you want to deter unwanted activity or provide additional lighting. A few recommended areas include driveways, porches and near windows with ground access. Most often, outdoor floodlights are mounted to a surface or wall box in eaves, under soffits, above doorways or garages and on exterior walls. Most security lights feature movable heads, which enable them to be adjusted to accommodate a variety of mounting positions.

Security Light Options

At Batteries Plus Bulbs, we have a wide range of outdoor security lights to fit a variety of different needs and budgets. The Mr Beams Battery Powered LED Security Light is a versatile option, perfect for any situation. It’s affordable, easy to install and, best of all, it’s battery powered, meaning it can be used in places where electricity isn’t available. The light features two adjustable heads that are motion sensor activated from 30 feet, with a 20-second auto shutoff.

The Nuvo LED Security Light offers a slightly more advanced option. This motion-activated dual head LED security lamp generates 1900 lumens to light up your yard or driveway. It’s also long-lasting, designed to provide an impressive 50,000 average rated hours of use. Plus, it comes with a 5-year limited manufacturer’s warranty. Unlike the Mr Beams option above, however, the Nuvo needs to be hardwired, so be sure to have it professionally installed.

Ward off intruders while recording footage with the Geeni SENTRY Wi-Fi Floodlight and Security Camera. It combines a motion activated floodlight with a 1080p video camera. The light is motion activated and comes with a 100 decibel alarm to frighten intruders away. Additionally, you can use your home Wi-Fi to remotely access real-time and stored footage using your hub or an easy-to-use app on your phone. You can even set it to send alerts to your phone when movement is detected on your property.

Batteries Plus Bulbs offers a number of outdoor security lights perfect for both homes and businesses. If you have additional questions, stop into any Batteries Plus Bulbs location. Our associates will be happy to help you find the best motion sensor light for outdoors.
