It was about a month ago that we fell back – turning our clocks back one hour.
For many of us that means getting up and going to work in daylight – something that may not have been happening only days before. But it may also mean that at the end of your work day, you’re leaving your place of business in the dark.
There are many reasons for having good lighting in the evening when you or your employees are headed to the parking lot in the dark – not the least of which is safety. If you’re an employer, you certainly want your staff to feel safe coming and going from your place of business.
The time change serves as a great reminder to think about your business outdoor security lighting.
If your office outdoor lighting is controlled by an on/off switch in your office, it may be time to think about an upgrade to an automatic system.
This could be as simple as a timer that you adjust manually on a seasonal basis. And there are more advanced options that can allow you to set the outdoor lighting based on how light or dark it is. You can set your outdoor security light so it’s on only when you want it to be, and the brightness can even be adjusted to be brighter when someone steps in front of it. The same controls will keep the lights off during daylight.
If you’re not sure what your exterior lights can do, we will be happy to examine them and upgrade your system if needed.
