A back yard patio door or a garage side entry door can be inviting areas for those looking to gain illegal entry into your home at night. Installing a motion sensing spot light is a great first step in deterring illegal trespassing on your property.
When selecting a location to install the motion spot light, select a location that will have an unobstructed view of the area you wish to cover. Selecting the proper motion sensor is also crucial when considering installation of a motion spot light. Select a motion sensor that has built-in surge protection, “motion sensitivity” adjustment and a “time on” adjustment.
Also, remember to always install the motion sensor below the fixture spot bulbs to avoid the heat from the bulbs triggering the sensor. A properly installed motion spot light can help give you “peace of mind” knowing that your home will be less inviting to those looking to break-in.
