GLENVIEW, IL (OCTOBER 2013) -- ALSTE Electric, servicing Chicago's northern suburbs for 37 years, urges the public to think about light safety around their homes as daylight grows shorter. A variety of security lighting is available that may deter would-be burglars and predators as night falls earlier. ALSTE Electric is offering free lighting safety assessments the entire month of November.

Statistics show peaks in crime rates at the end of October and early November, which may be associated to Daylight Saving Time, which is Sunday, November 3, 2013. ALSTE Electric recommends evaluating internal and external lighting around the house such as security and safety motion lights, electronic timing controlled lights, and landscape, yard and driveway lighting.

"You want to make sure there is sufficient lighting around your property to feel safe and secure when you are home at night or when family and friends arrive," says Maureen Edelman, president of Glenview-based ALSTE Electric. "Most people think about exterior lighting for aesthetic effect, but it offers so much more."

From deterring wildlife to illuminating the walk or driveway, and even providing safety when away from the home, lighting offers of security. "We are urging residents to call us for a free assessment before it's too dark too late," states Edelman. "We want to make sure our clients feel their homes are safe and secure all year long, when at home or away on vacation."
