Dusk to Dawn Security Lights

Community Preservation has an ongoing working relationship with our Utilities Department with regards to security lighting throughout the City.

Increased Lighting

Law Enforcement officials agree that increased lighting can help deter crime and improve safety. That's why Anaheim Public Utilities offers its customers an energy-efficient choice for safety-outdoor Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights with photo-sensors.


The photo-sensor enables the lights to come on automatically at dusk and shut off automatically at dawn. By using LED lights, participants will conserve energy and reduce energy costs compared to other types of lighting. In fact, LED lights can over 80% less energy than standard incandescent bulbs*.


This program can benefit:
  • All single-family Anaheim residents
  • Low-income Anaheim residents
  • Multi-family complexes located in Anaheim
  • All Anaheim businesses (large or small)


If you are interested in obtaining 'Dusk to Dawn' security lights, please feel free to contact the Community Preservation Office at 714-765-5158.

Note: *Comparison is based on 300-watt standard incandescent bulb, which gives similar level of light output to a 26-Watt LED light.
