Parking lots serve their practical purpose, providing a safe place to park your car away from the flow of traffic on the streets. Well, ideally, a parking lot is a safe place to park and walk away from your vehicle, but poorly-lit parking lots struggle with this. Without adequate lighting to illuminate the entire perimeter of the lot, this can invite car thieves and other wrongdoers to break into your vehicle. Who wants their vehicle broken into when they’re paying to park somewhere in town? Obviously, no one wants that. Fortunately, LED parking lot lights can help increase the security of parking lots in a number of ways.

In the interest of making parking lots safer, let’s take a look at some of the things that outdoor LED parking lot lights can do.

People Are More Likely To Visit Your Lot

Have you ever walked out to your car at night in a dimly lit parking lot? It’s no fun. Many people find themselves glancing over their shoulders every couple of seconds, or end up walking a little bit faster than usual. Well, according to researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, there’s some science behind feeling unsafe in dark places – people perceive dark, glaring, uneven or otherwise poorly lit parking lots as less safe.

So, what that means is that your parking lot lighting could be scaring customers away, compromising your building’s security and even doing measurable damage to your business’ bottom line. By having a well-lit parking lot with the help of an outdoor LED light installation, people are more likely to feel safe and patronize your business.

Increase Security Camera Performance

Unless you have high-quality night vision cameras, most security cameras are pretty useless if the area they’re filming isn’t well-lit. Indeed, to pick up images properly, security cameras need uniform lighting. Typically, most security cameras are rated for very low and very high light levels but don’t perform very well with high contrast ranges. Proper lighting design is crucial to making sure that your security cameras perform their best.

Save Money And Stay Safe With Commercial Outdoor LED Lighting
