What can you do to protect your home when you are on holiday?
Many of us try to get away during these cold Winter months, many seek the sunshine and warmth of elsewhere. Ensuring that our home is well secured will give you peace of mind so you can just enjoy your much-deserved trip away.
???? Use trusted people within your local area to keep an eye on your property from time to time, this might be a neighbor, friend, or family member. Ensure they are tending to your mailbox and potentially even mowing the lawn depending on how long you are away for.
? Technology helps us be able to remotely control things such as televisions and lights on and off at various times making it look like someone is home. Smart homes are the way of the future. Do not have funds to set this up? Have a look for lights that you can pre-set before you leave home to turn on and off at set intervals.
? Lock up your valuables. Put any valuable items both inside and outside the home away in a safe and hidden place to not attract unwanted attention.
? Install security cameras so you can keep an eye on your home remotely, but also acts as a visual deterrent for potential burglars as they can easily see your home is monitored in some way.
Planning the safety of your home when you are going on holiday is super important, taking time to think about these things just might make your trip away a little bit less stressful!
