Upgrade your customers’ outdoor security lighting

Issue 6 2022 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection, Products, Smart Home Automation

With the soaring cost of living and the nights getting darker, it is so important to make sure your customers’ properties are protected against theft and crime. Motion detector-activated outdoor security lighting provides strong intruder deterrent solutions, protects properties from theft and provides reliable, high-quality visible lighting.

External security lighting is essential to deter intruders from entering or vandalising properties. Sufficient lighting ensures that intruders are reliably detected and clearly identified on CCTV. It is also used to illuminate dark spots around the property.

It is important to remember that in addition to having controlled security lighting in areas where crime is high, security lighting is also crucial in areas with low crime rates, as it is common for expensive homes and cars to be regular targets for theft and vandalism. With the cost of living on the rise and the festive season fast approaching, there are many more opportunistic burglars, so it is crucial to ensure your customers have sufficient and reliable security lighting.

• Security lighting provides a clear field of view around the external area of the property, making it easy to see people who may be trespassing.

• Security lighting makes it safe for people who are entering the property in the dark, as trip hazards are reduced.

• Smart timer functions can create an occupancy pattern, which will discourage burglars from targeting a property.

• Security lighting makes people feel much more comfortable going outside when it is dark or in the early hours of the morning.


Controlled security lighting is perfect for a wide range of sectors including residential, commercial and industrial. It is perfect for a variety of applications to illuminate the front of houses, driveways, roads, pathways, alleyways and car parks.

Lights can be set on and off via a timer, which is particularly helpful at deterring intruders as homes which are unoccupied, or not displaying lights, are more likely to be burgled. GJD’s security lighting products use energy-efficient technology so the customer can keep costs as low as possible. Another key feature is their programmable functions, so the installer and customer can easily program the controllers to function exactly how they need them to.

GJD’s security lighting systems will provide the end customer with an audible warning of potential intruders. Last, but not least, GJD’s security lighting controllers can control up to four zones with a single control unit. This can easily be expanded to extend lighting with additional expansion units.
