Key Lighting Areas for Resident Communities


Proper lighting in HOA (Homeowners Association), condominiums, and apartment complexes is crucial for enhancing safety, security, and the overall living experience for residents. Following is a list key lighting areas to consider in these types of residential communities:

Pathways and Walkways

Ensure well-lit pathways, sidewalks, and walking areas to enhance safety, especially during nighttime. Adequate lighting helps prevent accidents, deters criminal activity, and promotes a sense of security.


Parking Lots Outdoor and Indoor

Ensuring adequate lighting in parking lots and garages will prevent accidents, deter vandalism, and improve residents’ peace of mind. Key to these lighting initiatives includes installing lights strategically to cover the entire parking lot or garage, minimizing dark areas where criminal activities could occur – at entrances, exits, pedestrian walkways, and areas around elevators and stairwells.Check out more options …
