Security Lighting

The primary objective is to deter any property damage and protects people using the property.  Liability concerns encourage some businesses to install security lighting.  Bathing the area with 0.5 foot-candles is considered a minimal level for security lighting.  Though not the most aesthetically pleasing, place fixture at the highest possible mounting height for the best results.  If these lights will be on all the time, they will likely overpower any other landscape lighting.  Where the client plans to use security lighting only sporadically, install it with separate switching.
