I've been thinking about upgrading our house lighting for burglary prevention. Right now we have some lights that come on with motion sensing at a few points outside. There is a timer on the front door lighting that even corrects for seasonal variations and day light savings time. Some LED lights go down our walkway. A light comes on in the upstairs bedroom for the 9pm to 12pm times. We also have an alarm system.
It occurred to me that when the shades are drawn all I might need is a decent power LED work light to shine on the shades for a room in a lower level. Here is one for about $35, Designers Edge L1306 108-LED Portable Bright LED Workshop Lighting, Green - Portable Work Lights - Amazon.com
Does this sound like a good idea attached to a mechanical timer on a wall socket? Or is there an even better one?
Any other thoughts on home security items that really work and are simple installations
