Security Lighting & Intrusion Detection Systems
Pole, street, and parking lot lights were never designed specifically for perimeter
security lighting camera systems or on-site security personnel. Rather, these lighting products were merely adapted to meet the need for “security lighting.” Often times, legacy pole-mounted systems deliver way too much light, creating a slew of potential problems including shadows where intruders can hide, blinding glare that renders security personnel ineffective, and the surrounding unlit areas even darker. This week’s discussion, research and identify better solutions to enhance targeted perimeter lighting tot with human eye.
