Like many people, I have been the unintentional victim of light pollution and trespass. Recently my neighbour fitted a 500 watt ‘Security’ floodlight at the back of his house. Badly angled (facing across the ground instead of down) it flooded light into my bedroom and garden, the nearby car park, and a 1/2 acre of adjacent countryside. In addition, it was sited beside his central heating exhaust vent, so that the PIR (passive infra-red) sensor was triggered every time the heating system ignited – in effect every 10 minutes. All night.
Most of the older (Pre led lighting fittings) available in the UK seem poorly designed, creating glare and light pollution, and wasting a lot of energy (and money) in the process.
Fortunately, my neighbour was receptive to the idea of using a low energy LED light fitting and use a separate GJD low voltage PIR and lighting controller.
So when it does come on he now uses a fraction of the energy he used to use, also he know’s when someone enters his garden by the GJD lighting controller.
