Home Security Tips

As you plan all the fun of your next summer vacation, consider planning your home security strategy while you are away. The summer months are popular for holidays and, sadly, home burglaries. So enjoy these tips to protect your home while you’re away.

Make the House Look Full

Burglars look for a home with signs that no one has been there in a while, making it a safer choice to intrude. Some easy ways to make your home look lived in and deterred robbers. Set a timer before you leave to illuminate interior and exterior lights to give the illusion that you are home. Additionally, put a system to deal with your mail and newspapers. An overflowing mailbox or a driveway full of a week’s worth of newspapers is a pretty good tell that you are away. You can stop your newspaper and mail deliveries or have your neighbor take them in until you get back. Another significant step is keeping up with your 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 may be excited, but hold off on telling everyone you know. Only trust a selected few. If people don’t need to know, then they shouldn’t. While on your travels, wait to post your pictures. When you say you’re away, it is an excellent tip to any of your online followers that your house is empty.

Increase Your Home Security Measures

As you get closer to your departure date, look at your trees. Cut down any branches intruders can use to get into your home. Call your home security company and alert them of your plans. Secure your valuables in a safe deposit box and possibly move the box to a second location. Take in any spare keys that usually sit outside because robbers are familiar with the usual hiding places. As you leave, double-check all entry doors and windows. Set your alarm before you go and confirm that you can use any connected apps.
