Here are some some tips to secure your home before embarking on your wonderful vacation:

Make Your Home Look Lived In

  • Be sure to make arrangements to hold delivery of your mail, newspapers and magazines This is the number 1 clue for burglars that you are not home.

  • Ask a close neighbor to park in your driveway for the night to make it look like someone is home.

  • Install timers on the lights inside your house. You can purchase these timers at home improvement stores and set them to turn on and off randomly

  • Make arrangements to have your lawn maintained while you are on vacation

  • Put motion detectors on your outside lights which turns the lights on when something is inside the sensor’s range.

Law Enforcement Tips

  • Join a neighborhood watch group and have some of the members on the lookout while you are gone.

  • Keep your valuables in a safety deposit box at the bank.

  • Never leave an extra or emergency key outside because burglars can always find them. The best solution is to give a key to someone you trust.

  • Install an alarm system. Houses without alarms are 3 times more likely to be burglarized.

Tips from Property Management Experts

  • To save money and avoid electrical problems, unplug everything except refrigerator/freezer and timers.

  • Disengage your garage door opener as some burglars are clever enough to get the code

  • In addition to the doors, also lock all windows

  • Install an automatic thermostat to regulate the temperature and save you money while you are away.
