The Importance of Landscape Lighting for a Home

The chances that a home will be burglarized is about one in five, according to FBI crime reports. Home intrusions not only result in the loss of possessions but can post a danger to family members as well. In around 300,000 of the 1.6 million burglaries that occur in the United States each year, a member of the household is present when the intrusion occurs. Andy’s Sprinkler, Drainage, Lighting Services provides landscape lighting for the exterior of your home that can greatly improve the chances that burglars will bypass your home.

Criminal Minds

The National Institute of Justice commissioned a series of studies to ascertain how criminals choose their victims. When it came to home burglaries, the studies found that burglars typically make the decision to burglarize a home from the street. They look for homes that they can break into easily and quietly without being observed by neighbors. Well-lit areas make criminals feel vulnerable and exposed. An outdoor lighting system is not only a deterrent to burglars, but also enhances your ability to identify strangers outside of your home.
