You should also consider your home security as you prepare for your summer road trip or beachy getaways. July and August are popular months for vacations and other security measures. Protect your home while you’re away to enjoy yourself with these tips.
Make It Look Like There are People Home
Burglars look for homes not being taken care of for accessible opportunities to rob. Take some easy steps to make your homes look lived-in while you are away. Set a timer for interior and exterior lights to make it appear like people are in the house. Additionally, nothing is a more significant tell than an overflowing mailbox or newspapers piled up at the end of the driveway. You can stop your newspaper and mail deliveries or have your neighbor take them in during your absence. Another step to take is to keep up with regular lawn care. Use a trusted neighbor or an affordable service to keep your home looking well taken care of while you are away.
Keep Your Plans a Secret
You never know what people are capable of, so don’t reveal your plans to just anyone. For example, don’t post your location while you are away. Even if you only allow your social media friends to view your posts, you never know what people are capable of even when you know them.
Secure Your Home
Before you leave, you should secure your home as much as possible. Cut down any branches burglars can use to get into your home. Alert your home security company by calling your representative. Secure your valuables in a safe deposit box and possibly in a second secure location. Take in any spare keys that usually sit outside. As you leave, double-check that all doors and windows are locked. Set your alarm before you go and confirm that you can use any connected apps.
