The simplest form of a lantern, and most likely the first, is the candle lantern. A candle is placed in a metal box with glass sides and an open top. We all know of the kerosene lantern, also referred to as a hurricane lantern. This type lantern was commonly used from the 19th century into the middle of the 20th century. This lantern, or a version of, is still used by campers and other outdoorsmen. The kerosene lantern is ruggedly built for portability. The metal chimney and side tubes supports the glass globe and enhance the draft of air reaching the flame. Horse drawn carriages, railroad cars and ships were other early uses of the kerosene lantern.
The good news is that the styles today are much more varied than they were in the days of David Copperfield. While old world styles are still very popular, modern designs have taken significant creative leaps, accommodating every home and garden scenario.
Conversely, if you are lighting a large area, you may consider a street lantern, with two or more individual fixtures for broad lighting and maximum security. You can easily convert your outdoor post lamp into a motion-detector light that will alert you to visitors, both welcomed and unwelcomed.
The well lights are functional and beautiful - they are placed on the ground or under it so that they cannot be seen, but provide lighting you need to highlight trees or statues in your garden. The path lights might also be a good idea if you have a large yard, but they do not work for smaller ones. If you have a pond, do not miss to add special underwater pond lights to it - the landscape will become whimsical as if it has come out of a fairy tale.
Since the most common use for outdoor lighting systems is to increase the level of safety around the home, adding lighting to the front of your home can help visitors and vehicles move safely. Lighting at the front of your home can be combined with porch lighting to create a relaxing outdoor climate. When planning the security of your outdoor lantern lighting systems, you can consider infra-red devices which will turn on lights upon sensing a physical presence. This is a viable method for deterring intruders, particularly when combined with a video recording system. This method will offer a higher degree of safety without incurring additional charges for electricity consumption that is associated with having outdoor lights on at all hours of the night. Combing security measures with general garden lighting is a great way to create an inviting space in your garden with the protection you and your family deserves.
