Are LED High Bay Lights as Good as Outdoor Security Lights?

High bays are great for indoor lighting, but there are far better choices for outdoor security lighting, like flood lights, wall packs and parking light fixtures.

What Are The Benefits of LED Security Lights?

They are powerful, high quality light sources that can be attached to motion sensors and provide instantaneous brightness. They require very little, if any, maintenance and use significantly less energy than halogen and metal halide light sources.

Are LED Security Lights Better Than Halogen Lights?

Halogen bulbs aren’t particularly bright considering the amount of energy they consume. A 500 Watt halogen light source can easily be replaced by 100W-150W LED. They also have a very short lifespan when compared to LED.

Why Are My LED Security Lights Flashing?

There are several reasons why LED lights flash, the most common is a faulty driver. Fortunately, this is not a common problem and most of our fixtures allow for driver swap outs in the field.

Can You Use Flood Lights for Security Lights?

Can You Use Wall Packs as Security Lights?

Yes, they are the preferred light choice next to a building, mounted on the exterior wall. There are three types - forward throw (for wall pack flood), full cutoff and semi cutoff, so make sure you get the right type for your needs. We carry all three, so call us and we can help.

What Wattage LED Security Light Is Equal to 500 Watts?

80 to 100 Watts should be all you need to replace 500 Watts halogen (500 Watts is a typical halogen wattage and not a common metal halide wattage). For 400 Watts metal halide, 100 to 150 Watts would be a good range to provide more lighting than what the metal halide delivers.

How Do LEDs Compare to Mercury Security Lights?

Mercury is a very old technology. The light quality is poor, and everything appears green. CRI on mercury vapor is 22 whereas LED starts at 70. They are also very inefficient when compared to LEDs. So upgrading mercury lights to LEDs is good.

What Are the Types of Security Lighting?

There are 4 main types:

Wall packs for lighting up areas next to buildings;
Parking lot lights that are pole mounted and provide light to large parking spaces;
Flood lights that are wall, pole or perimeter mounted providing pin point lighting or large area flood lighting;
High mast lights mounted on tall poles providing large areas of light coverage.

Should I Install New Fixtures or Retrofit?

You can do either, but a good reason to retrofit is you have fixtures that you want to keep for aesthetic purposes or the fixtures themselves would be expensive to replace. Otherwise, new fixtures would be a good choice.
