Outdoor wall lighting has the advantage of being located where it can be wired into standard house current or can have an extension cord easily run to it. Some outdoor wall lighting is battery or solar operated. Wall lighting is a little more stable than strings of light or lamps set up on a base that is independent of the house. It serves to light entryways, porch areas or outdoor stairs. In addition, outdoor lighting can be beautiful, adding that little extra touch to the outside of your home. Just incidentally, it can provide illumination for security cameras.
