Sensors mobility: the lights will automatically turn on and will not have to leave the car.

In this type of garages is recommended to use fluorescent tubes, which can be placed in the ceiling or walls. It besides not consume in excess, will give proper light and more than enough. The best option is to place sensors mobility, that make the lights turn on automatically by sensing the vehicle, and that will prevent us having to turn the light out for ourselves.

In these cases the lighting should still receive more attention. As in the previous case, we can put on the roof tubes in the area where it will be parked our car, with sensors mobility, enough to light up when parking. We can supplement the light with a specific lighting in areas that are dedicated to other uses by placing light bulbs or bulbs. These places need not have sensors, because we can flip a switch and avoid unnecessary consumption. We must not forget that proper lighting can avoid unnecessary mishaps that can damage our car or ourselves.
