the consumer. Not only does outdoor lighting directly effect a
homeowner's safety and security, but it has a direct impact on curb appeal and
resale value as well. Exterior lighting must be practical as well as
attractive. Lighting designers must blend wattage requirements with
aesthetics to create a functional lighting plan. Too little illumination
can lead to safety hazards such as trips and falls by visitors, as well as
unwelcome visits by burglars. Too much wattage can leave a home with a
garish glare unpleasing to the eye and damaging to home values.

other environmental variables can be extremely detrimental to exterior
lighting fixtures. Quality outdoor lighting manufacturers use superior
