I have a couple of motion lights outside but my two main lights (back door, front door) are dusk to dawn lights, they stay on all night.
I've added a couple motion light, side of the house, when you approach the house and an additional one in the back of the house. The back of the house one lights up with a nice 1000w bulb. That puts light though my rear sliding door so that it lets me know something or someone is in my yard.
