Keeping Property Safe: Motion Detectors/Outdoor Lighting

Roberts Electric outdoor lighting and motion detectors

Outdoor lighting helps keep homes and businesses safe

Many home and business owners these days are concerned about safety. We recommend motion detectors and enhanced use of outdoor lighting and timers as significant deterrents to crime and break-ins.

Motion Detectors

We install high-quality, infrared motion detectors that have a high degree of effectiveness and reliability. Pet owners can set sensitivity levels so their household animals do not set off the alarm. Motion detectors can be decorative; features can match outdoor decor and also be low voltage to save energy.

Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting can be both a decorative enhancement and a crime deterrent. Install a timer so that lights go on and off at appropriate times when you will be getting home late or be out of town for an extended period of time.

Historic Casa Madrona: Electrical Retrofit

Roberts Electric at Casa Madrona

The Roberts Electric team works on a complete electrical retrofit at Casa Madrona

Roberts Electric worked on a complete retrofit of historic Casa Madrona, perched above Sausalito with dramatic views of the Bay and San Francisco. Casa Madrona is on the National Register of Historic Places, so maintaining the building’s historical integrity is an important part of our job.

We installed recessed lighting, fire-alarm system wiring and datacommunications wiring throughout the facility, which includes the three-story main building, cabins, spa and restaurants with three kitchens. The Casa Madrona project is a complete retrofit that includes rewiring three kitchens and the spa, plus new phone lines throughout the facility

As with many projects in the Bay Area, Casa Madrona has important historical considerations. Built in 1885, this beautiful hotel has been restored and expanded several times and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. We worked closely with the owner, architect and contractor to make sure that we comply with the historical standards.
