Safety and security are two fundamental applications for exterior lighting in Durham. They are comparable in nature, so the same lighting fixtures can often accomplish similar purposes. For instance, security lighting helps reduce the risk of theft and vandalism. Safety lighting protects business owners and their visitors from injuries caused by trips and falls in places that are not well lit. If your business has an outdoor area, landscape lighting is one of the most significant improvements that you can make to it. At Burnett Electrical Contracting, LLC., we offer complete landscape lighting design solutions to add beauty and security to any business.

Our dedicated team of professionals provides outstanding customer service and superior craftsmanship. You will find the quality and expertise you have been searching for when it comes to custom landscape lighting.


Yard lights used for security lighting are available for purchase from various electric or home improvement companies. They are usually mounted on tall posts to brighten large areas. They can also be installed on taller buildings. The lamp choices are commonly high-intensity discharge fixtures, and may be either metal halide or high-pressure sodium bulbs. The metal halide bulbs emit a soft blue or white light while the HPS bulbs will emit a yellow to orange light. Features and highlights include:

  • Security and safety
  • Ambiance and beauty
  • Motion-activated floodlights
  • Added value

When used together, landscaping and security lighting can increase the protection, charm, ambiance, appeal, and value of your business. Our experts are available to help you shine the spotlight on the path to more beautiful surroundings.

Firmly fixing security lighting at notable heights will deter tampering. They can also be guarded by a metal mesh cage or plastic guards. While spotlights are useful, floodlights are more popular in Durham because they illuminate a larger area. Some areas that should be illuminated are fenced-in yards, the areas closest to the house and driveways.

When installing and directing exterior lights, make sure that they properly illuminate the property. However, it is important that they do not shine through the windows of neighboring homes or businesses. Initial adjustments can be made during the day, but fine-tuning should be done after dark. If used with security cameras, lights should be placed and adjusted to prevent excessive shadows and glare.
