It’s no secret that burglars love to strike when a home is unprotected. So how do you keep your family and property safe when you’re away on vacation, a business trip, or attending a family emergency?
Here are a handful of tips you can use to keep your house safe and secure even when you’re not in it:
Plan ahead with a written guide
If you find yourself trying to secure your house at the last minute, there’s a good chance you’ll overlook a few key details. Create a written checklist that reminds you to lock doors, secure windows, turn on alarms, etc. That way, you’ll know you’ve handled the details and won’t have to worry that you overlooked something.
Get the neighbors involved
Find a neighbor you can trust, and let them know how long you’ll be gone. They can keep an eye on your property, and especially for thieves dressed up like repair men and delivery personnel.
Don’t let your house look empty
Just because you aren’t at home doesn’t mean your house has to look unoccupied. Use automatic timers for lights, televisions, and even stereo speakers to give the impression that someone is around. Most burglars won’t look close enough to tell the difference.
Configure your alarm system
A great alarm system is your first line of defense against burglary, and our state-of-the-art security equipment has numerous settings that you can use to keep your home safe while you’re away.
