And I don't need my long driveway lit up like an airport runway, all night long, lol.I really don't see the necessity to light your house like a prison all night.
I live in a wooded area in the city. I can only see two neighbors. We all kept the outdoor lights to a minimum - dark keeps the ambience, keeps it natural. It's nice to be able to listen to night noises, the eyes adjust, view the sky, etc.
My previous neighbor moved out, the new neighbor believes in lotsa lights. Some lights are mounted line-of-sight, slzighty lighting our interior. And the glare means we can't see what's outside in our yard by looking out the window. I can only see his house and floods.
Ironically, in the 25 years I've been here, the only burglary happened to him. Like I said, it's wooded, the burglars appreciated the light, I'm sure.
I have several PIR floods, so I know when someone/something approaches, if I'm awake. It's usually a coyote. The next day, I review footage. Our dog also keeps listening for noises... My laser line, PIR floods, cameras, and dog provides more security/safety that lights, IMHO...
