Have you ever just wanted to dive into your pool on a hot summer night to cool off? Of course you have, but doing so in the dark can be dangerous. You need to see where you are going and what you are doing.
Outdoor security lights are not just about warding off burglars and trespassers. Of paramount concern is your physical safety and avoiding accidents as well. Use your lights outside to illuminate pools, hot tubs and the surrounding areas so you can see clearly and avoid unnecessary injuries.
It is easy to trip on a rock and end up doing a swan dive into a pool. Whether it is the summer and the pool is full or winter and it is empty, that is a serious injury waiting to happen. During times when the pool is empty, place a reflective tarp over it that can be seen clearly in the lights.
Proper exterior lighting around pools is always important, especially if you enter the house through your backyard.
If you have a gazebo or pool house these need to be lit too. These are good places for a burglar to hide and are important parts of your home security.
