Outdoor Security Light Frequently Asked Questions

How do motion sensor outdoor lights work?

Whenever motion is detected outside your home, typically by heat signature, the outdoor light will illuminate. These sensors can pick up heat from people, pets, or cars.

Do motion sensor outdoor lights work during daylight?

Most outdoor lights are made with photocell technology to avoid illuminating the outdoor light during daylight. This saves the lifespan of light and energy.

What lightbulb is best for outdoor lights?

It depends on the light. Most outdoor lights come with the best lightbulb to use. But if you would like to replace the bulbs, consider replacing with (LED) lights to produce the same intense light with only a fraction of the power usage.

A brand new kitchen can effortlessly blend comfort, beauty and convenience, and it can help to create the perfect sanctuary where the family can congregate … any time of the day! Here are our top 5 reasons to renovate your kitchen.

Electrician working on cables in a construction building. If you need to do a pre-purchase electrical inspection, contact Allyn White now!

Before buying a property, it is essential that we carry out pre-purchase electrical inspections. Regular electrical inspections will help ensure your home or business is electrically safe protecting your family or your staff. We offer comprehensive electrical inspections for any sized house or building.

Why should I get an electrical inspection?

There are several reasons why you should have regular electrical inspections. The most important reason, of course, is safety. Without regular thorough electrical inspections, the first sign that there is something wrong is when there is a major problem, like a fire or an electrical accident.

By having regular electrical inspections, you can reduce the chances of major electrical faults.

Man, an electrical technician working in a switchboard with fuses. Installation and connection of electrical equipment. Professional with tools in hand.

In Australia, up to 40 per cent of all residential fires can be attributed to some form of electrical failure or fault. Whilst some of these may be prevented through more careful practices, such as not leaving a mobile phone to charde near flammable materials, others can be directly attributed to overloaded electrical circuits, faulty electrical appliances, and deteriorated wiring.

As your home ages and the demands on electrical systems increase, so too does the importance of remaining vigilant to signs of wiring degradation. Even homes built in the 1990s will not have been wired to cope with the electrical demands of modern technology, which may be beyond their capacity.

Why should you rewire a house?
