What are Security Lights?

Security lights will ensure that your home in Oakhill is protected by light, even on the darkest of nights!! You can control them via a switch but most of them are powered on by movement when a PIR (Passive Infra-Red)  is triggered, PIRs detect movement. Or, you can have them triggered via a Photocell, a Photocell detects light levels and are usually triggered at Dusk and go off at Dawn (hence why they're commonly called a 'Dawn to Dusk' sensor).

I will only fit lights and accessories that come with quality guaranteed, I am sure you'll agree that you most certainly do get what you pay for these days! So, with this in mind, I am going to start with a quote by the famous philosopher (amongst other things), John Ruskin… the security lighting I install rings true with this quote:


“It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”

― John Ruskin


This is not only true in terms of who you get to do any work for you, from plumbing, building and yes electrics, but to any kind of product you buy. This is why I only install items that meet that standard and threshold.

Security Lighting: The BIG 3! 

There are generally 3 brands of security lighting that I install in and around Oakhill, however there are other good brands and lights that I have not tried, these would include lights from Timeguard, Knightsbridge to name a couple, however! If you come to me and ask for a new Security Light I will recommend these three brands: 

Steinel Security Lighting

Spotlight with motion detector and fully swivels, 50,000 hours life (about 30 years!) and comes with wireless connection via the Steinel App too to name just a few features! This is a premium quality light, no expense has been spared and there are lots of different options to choose from.

Security Lighting by Steinel - these security lights are of the premium variety but then so is the price tag, they do offer a lovely light!

Collingwood Security Lighting

With a wide 120° beam angle and a unique 360° rotation, this 30W flicker-free floodlight is the ideal solution for outdoor use, lighting large areas, courtyards and entrances or for uplighting trees and buildings. With a market leading efficacy and contemporary black cast aluminium body, this colour switchable light is a versatile solution for your space. Choose the PIR sensor option for added security and reduction of energy bills in highly trafficked areas.

Collingwood are a top quality British brand of lighting and are well known for quality - they are outdoor lighting specialists

Ovia Pathfinder PIR Security Lighting 

“The Pathfinder is a new collection of high performance LED floodlights from Click Ovia. Fitted with a PIR (Passive Infra-Red) sensor that detects heat signatures from humans or creatures of the night.” That is the blurb from their website, however I would have to add that although it has no bells or whistles your local electrician is happy to offer this as an alternative to those more expensive brands... it's a robost and well made light and so it meets my minimum criteria for quality.


So, those are the three I will fit and guarantee, and why? Because, as Mr Ruskin states, when you pay too little you sometimes lose everything… and with the top two brands in particular, the Steinel and Collingwood lights you get 50,000 hours of lamp life and that works out to a staggering 30 hours of life when the lights are on an average of 4.5 hours per day. I think you’ll agree that that would work out to be quite a few of those halogen bulbs, not to mention all that wasted time and money replacing them.
