Carefully selected outdoor luminaires can reduce energy use, improve lighting quality, and provide a sense of security for homeowners. This Snapshot shows how changes to the outdoor entry lighting improved the appearance and security of a row house in a historic neighborhood in Albany, New York. Lighting objectives in this installation included eliminating dark areas on the entry stoop, making it easier to see the lock at night, reducing glare, providing light at dusk without leaving lights on all day, and reducing energy use.
