In the week of October, when the clocks go back, you can expect household thefts to rise by five percent. Interior lighting can be a good deterrent for burglaries as it raises doubt as to whether anyone is home.  Safe low voltage outdoor lighting can be an even better deterrent!   You can very quickly install the 12v system and hook up wall lights, spotlights, floodlights and post lights....
