Dusk to Dawn Light
Security lights are outdoor light fixtures for use on your property to enhance the safety and security of your home, outbuildings and/or premises. They are available to any Tipmont member for continuous year-round service at locations readily accessible for maintenance purposes (by the sole discretion of Tipmont).
About Security Lights
Tipmont security lighting is photocell-controlled. They turn on automatically in the dark and turn off automatically when light is no longer necessary. Generally speaking, this is from dusk to dawn; however, lighting may activate at other times depending on levels of darkness.
Tipmont offers two security light services: metered and unmetered. The flat monthly rate is per light and includes costs for lighting equipment and electrical operation maintenance. All new installations of Tipmont security lighting use LED bulbs.
The installation time varies on lights installed for Unmetered Ornamental Services. Upon that request, engineers must meet with members to determine costs, and installation is scheduled only after payment.
Per Tipmont policy, we install lights for Unmetered Standard Services within five (5) business days of a request. If Unmetered Standard Service lights cannot be placed on a Tipmont meter or transformer pole, there may be an additional installation charge.
To order a Tipmont security light, call 800-726-3953 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.
