use with outbuildings, tool stores, etc.

Electronic options include CCTV observation systems or Video Entry Systems.
Alarms / Visitor Enunciator Systems
External doors will normally be linked into the building alarm system, however stand alone door alarm or visitor chime / enunciator devices are available.

Lights which incorporate a PIR (passive infra red sensor) are now readily available and easily affordable. These lights are normally off, thus preventing unnecessary light pollution, but switch on automatically when movement is detected within the sensor range.
