Devils come out in the dark. Do you often tell such stories to your kids when they fight you about going to bed? It is true that fear and darkness walk hand in hand, and most criminal activities are planned in the dark.
A common psychology therefore persists when there is little or no lights the possibilities of getting identified and being caught is lessened. Well again this is not an absolute theory because criminal activities do take place under bright daylight. But the very idea of security lighting in its core works upon the counter-attack force against the dark and devil concept.
There are three elementary reasons of using security lighting:
Security lighting is not meant for just use in the domestic setup. Other than residential protection, the security lighting arrangements are in commercial places, industries, office buildings, different institutes and even in the defense setup.
Among the common types of security lighting, sodium vapor lights and floodlights are very popular.
Technology in progress
The technology working to devise security lighting has not confined its research just in floodlights or sodium vapor bulbs. Novel innovations are being thoroughly worked out for better quality of illumination and to make a society free of crime. What does this exactly mean?
In our above discussion we have kept the safety and security means to inhibit intrusions and external attacks. But the crime world is not confined only to these aspects. There are many such offences which you do to yourself, may be provocation works behind committing those. Again what has those crimes to do with the security lighting?
Not beating about the bush anymore, lets come to the exact point. Recently the blue outdoor lamp somewhat close to the mercury vapor lamp is being used as the security lamp. The illumination is bright but color detection has a magical illusion. Blue under blue light gets diluted. Therefore this security light can be widely used in those areas where drug injections are taken by the drug addicts. The blue light almost makes impossible for the injectors to penetrate the dose in their veins due to this color illusion.
Hats off to security lighting system not just for a safe goodnight sleep but also for creating such alertness to prevent the modern generation from committing such unwanted activities that may ruin their entire life.
