Is it ok to leave my porch light on all the time?


I want to leave my porch light on 24/7. I don't want to turn it off and on, so I don't indicate when I am home. But want it on for security reasons so it always seems like someone is home. Plus it's a nice light. My porch is covered, so it won't get wet. Is it safe? I know it sounds like a silly question, but I want to be sure.

    That's right. I don't think anyone would ever think that someone is always home by seeing the light always on. People would most probably guess the things Lisa has mentioned. To keep the light on for security reasons is not the right idea I believe.
