In my work, I often see many homes and businesses overlook the importance of outdoor lighting, which not only affects the aesthetics and comfort of outdoor areas, but also poses a threat to the safety of homes and businesses.

Therefore, I would like to emphasize the importance of outdoor lighting and share some of my experiences and suggestions from my practice.

First, outdoor lighting can improve the safety of homes and businesses. At night, the environment around homes and businesses is often dark, which makes it an easy target for unscrupulous criminals.

Installing outdoor lighting can effectively illuminate the surroundings and allow lawbreakers to hide, thus reducing the occurrence of crime. In addition, a reasonable outdoor lighting design can also improve the safety of walking at night and prevent people from falling or colliding in the dark.

Secondly, outdoor lighting can also enhance the beauty and comfort of homes and businesses. A reasonable lighting design can create different atmospheres, such as romantic, warm, elegant and so on.

Moreover, outdoor lighting can also create more entertainment and leisure spaces for homes and businesses, such as decks, gardens, outdoor restaurants, etc., making people’s time outdoors more enjoyable and comfortable.

Next, I will introduce you to some basic methods and considerations for installing outdoor lighting.
