The fall and winter months are the perfect time to install outdoor lighting and showcase your home to look its best at night. There are many advantages to a professional outdoor lighting system. Here are three reasons why you should invest in an outdoor lighting system:

Safety & Security

Outdoor lights provide you with safety by lighting walkways so people can navigate them easily and illuminate danger areas such as stairs, drop-offs, pools, etc.

Motion detecting lights can also be installed so a dark yard can be lit up brightly when someone walks through your yard. This helps with keeping away trespassers.

Décor & Curb Appeal

Having decorative lighting gives you the ability to showcase and highlight specific areas of your landscape. By installing lights around landscape in various spots, you pull the eye to these areas and display them attractively. It also allows your house to appear warm and inviting as it sits quietly on your property.

Functionality & Fun

With proper lighting, you can use yard after the sun goes down. Flood lights provide a large amount of general light to brighten a patio area or a portion of the yard and lights attached to deck posts illuminate areas for dining or conversations.

Certain types of decorative lighting also allows you to choose the color of lights you want. This allows you to light up your house blue for the Royals or red for the Chiefs!

Control with Your Smartphone

Certain brands, such as Luxor ZD, let you control your house lights from your phone. Luxor offers both zoning and dimming capabilities that provides you with limitless design possibilities. Some of their main features include: you can create up to 250 independently adjustable lighting groups, compatible only with any FX LED fixture or device with zoning, dimming, or color capabilities, and it uses event-based scheduling, which allows a single group of lights to change dimming percentages throughout the night.
