Home Emergency Security Lighting

Whether it's a power blackout or protection from criminals, emergency security lighting is a great way to protect your home and family. It's always a good idea to prepare for emergencies, especially when your home is left in the dark during a power failure or when your family's safety is threatened.

There are so many different emergency security lights available, it can be overwhelming to figure out what's best. One of the easiest ways to sort through them all is to ask your local electrician for help, at least, if they do install home emergency security lighting. Until then, you can do a little research by starting with the information below.

LED Blackout Power Failure Security Wall Lights for Interior

If you take a stroll around the inside of any commercial building, you'll see emergency lighting on the walls or ceilings. Emergency power failure security lights are available for homes too, though many homeowners aren't aware of them.

These emergency security lights are required by OSHA and the National Fire Protection Agency for occupant safety during commercial building power failures or service blackouts. You just can't see your way to the exit when you are inside in the dark, so these lights only work when the main power goes out. There are several different options available in blackout security wall lights for your home too.

Hardwired LED Emergency Security Lights

Some LED emergency security lights have self-contained batteries. This allows them to operate apart from the main power system of your home. The types that are hardwired can detect when the main power goes downs and then turn on right away, the rechargeable emergency security lights are not. There are no ugly dangling power cords with the hardwired type. These emergency interior lights are only for emergency use. They can operate for hours at a time, a great option if your power goes out for a while.

Motion Detector Security Lights With Alarms

Loud alarm sirens, flashing bright lights, and motion activated security lighting are great to beef up your home security. You can get motion detector security lights with alarms that are made for indoor or outdoor use. Many styles can be tied into your home's existing security system or smart home automation system as well. There's nothing like a loud emergency siren warning blasting in the face of a thief to scare them away.
