    Harder for someone to sneak around outside your house if there's a light on. They'd be more afraid of being seen.

      I think you're talking more about them being on in the middle of the day, I misunderstood. I interpreted your "always" concern as all night long for some reason.

      They can't work in pitch black any better than you or I, and a flashlight draws a lot of attention.  I don't buy the "fact" that some light always deters crime.  It makes more sense that criminals would work on the edges of a lighted area, because they need some light so see by, as well, and could use the shadows at the edge as cover.  Think about it a while.
