Security Lighting

Security lighting plays an important part in any site’s security regime. Good quality and well planned lighting will fulfil a number of roles:

  • lighting alone will provide a deterrence effect
  • lighting can increase the uncertainty and vulnerability of an intruder during an intrusion
  • lighting will enable detection and verification via CCTV
  • lighting will support a response force

CPNI have produced a guide on lighting, which covers advice on lighting types, levels and standards, see: Security Lighting Guidance for Security Managers
