security light
Security in lights

It's late at night and there's just a sliver of the moon to be seen, resulting in a very dark evening. You pull into the driveway and the family starts to unload and make their way to the house. Suddenly, you hear a sound, but it's too dark to see anything. What do you do? 

Do you quickly proceed into the house and lock the door behind you, still wondering what could have made that noise? Or, do you have everyone run back to the car and turn on the headlights while you check it out?

With a residential security light, you could have seen that your arrival scared your neighbor's cat as much as it scared you! It wasn't the trespasser, coyote or wild dog that you thought it was after all. Though you may not think of it often, the presence of light can provide a great deal of peace knowing that you can see what's going on around you. It is often said that having a security light could also prove as a deterrent to would-be intruders or vandals...especially if they think they could be seen or caught on video.

Do you have an area around your home that could use a little more light? If you are thinking about adding a security light at your home we can help. GreyStone has lighting technicians ready to help you. We provide many different styles of fixtures designed specifically for residential and yard security to decorative, flood and roadway lighting fixtures for businesses or neighborhoods.

If you are considering adding a security light for your home or business, here are five simple things to consider:

  1. Safety - to avoid trips, falls or surprise attacks, well-lit walkways ensure that you can navigate safely in and around your home.
  2. Security - illuminating a dark yard or entrance way could deter a would-be criminal from trespassing onto your property.
  3. Comfort - adding light to your extended living areas, such as a back yard, could make your patio or deck more inviting and comfortable. 
  4. Decor - the use of decorative lighting could highlight those special areas of your yard that you are most proud of.
  5. Curb Appeal - a nicely lit home appears warm and inviting, versus dark and drab, thus enhancing the appeal within your neighborhood. 

 For more information on lights or pricing or to have a lighting technician contact you, please complete our Lighting Contact Form

Here comes storm season
iMap_new front 2013
Over the last year and a half, we have provided many of you a resource which provides information about upcoming storms within your area. The response to the Touchstone Energy Weather Connection app has been overwhelmingly positive. 

We would love to hear your stories and how this app has helped you! Many of you have experienced a storm over the last year and we would like to know how you were alerted and how the app helped you. Were you cooking when the alert sounded telling you to take cover? Did you receive an alert about an area where a family member lives, allowing you the time to notify them so they could take cover? What's your story? 

If you are new to eConnect, you may be asking "What are you talking about?" Because you are a GreyStone member, we would like to give you a FREE premium life-saving weather app for use with your iPhone or Droid! It's just another member benefit brought to you by GreyStone Power.

With the Touchstone Energy Weather Connection App, severe weather will never catch you off guard and can alert you to potentially dangerous and life threatening weather conditions.

In addition, you can receive audible alerts for up to five different custom locations to ensure the safety of family, friends and assets. The text and audio text-to-speech reading of the watches and warnings for drivers and the visually impaired add to its features.

The Weather Connection app is free on iTunes and Google Play; however, to unlock the premium Weather Connection package (valued at $9.99, but free for you) which features the audible alerts, watches and warning map layers and social media streams, you will need to input your GreyStone co-op code after you have downloaded the app.
Simply email [email protected] with your mailing address or call 770-370-2273 (if leaving a message, be sure to leave your mailing address and contact number, speaking slowly and clearly) so that we can mail the code card to you.
No smartphone? No problem! Visit and check out the full-featured live radar system to track weather, detailed forecasts and lightning strikes, and watch storm chasers. You can even see the severe weather outlook in your area or anywhere in the U.S.
