Your home is one of your most valuable possessions! Keep it safe all year long by installing a home security and monitoring systems as well as following these tips!
- Get to Know Your Neighbors
Take the time to meet your neighbors, and get to know them. Encourage them to watch out for any suspicious activity when you’re not home. There is power in numbers!
- Buildup of Mail
If you plan on leaving town, ask a neighbor to pick up your mail and flyers for you! Many times thieves will leave a flyer on a door to see if it will get picked up within the day. If not ask the post office to hold the mail for you until your return, to avoid any packages sitting out for long periods of time.
Have a big ticket item such as a brand new TV? Dispose of the cardboard quickly. Leaving it out gives a thief insight of what you own!
- Social Media
If you are taking a vacation keep it off of social media! Vacation is exciting, but stay away from showcasing your absence from your home on social media, you never know who is watching!
- Check out Smart Home Security Systems
Smart Home security systems are more affordable than ever and help offer peace of mind while at work, running errands or even traveling. Many of them require little to no wires and run by WiFi, all you need to do is download an app and you can see who’s at your doorstep whether its a package getting delivered, a friend visiting or an unwanted guest!
