Building of our new home is progressing nicely and I'm currently looking into what kind of streetlights I want to install on the side facade of our home (circled red): The main area I want to illuminate is the path right next to these inbetween the house and the parking area (there'll be a metal fence separating the the path and parking space). I suppose it wouldn't hurt to also illuminate the parking area but my cameras will be trained on the path. I'm not sure if I'll install a camera to watch our car, current car is 20 years old so... I will have mounting points for lighting (230VAC) and cameras (CAT6) in the following locations: Cameras will probably be Dahua Starlight 2MPs. I'm wondering how many Lumens of light I should install to get the best images from these. Because this is a purely residential area I don't want to cause any irritation by installing lights that are too bright or shine too wide (the block of houses labeled 20 might be bothered by glare from the lamp). I was thinking of something like this: 30W SMD Street Lamp With Photo Cell Sensor Grey Body Natural White Color Temperature 4000K Luminous flux 2400 lm (30W) Color Rendering Index CRI >70 Beam angle 120 ° These come in varies varieties: Beam angle 100 ° or 120 ° Color temperature 3000, 4000 or 6000K Lumens 2400 or 4000 Photo Sensor yes/no I'm not sure if all combinations are available but I was wondering if anyone could comment on the best beam angle, color temperature and amount of lumens for this application. I'm not sure if these lights will be on their own private electrical circuit group so I might need the built-in photo sensor to have them switch on automatically at night (I realize they won't switch on exactly at the same time if they have their own sensor but that doesn't bother me). I'm thinking (without the benefit of experience) that 3000K might be more pleasant for the neighbours and anyone passing there (including ourselves). I'm also thinking that 100° is probably wide enough. I really have no idea how many Lumens I should choose. Like I said I'm likely to install 2MP starlights and I'm guessing that those would provide a good image with the 2400lm lights, or not? Any ideas?
