Whether visiting family, going on a booze cruise or pulling an all-nighter last minute shopping at your local Walmart, many people are away from their homes for long periods of time during the holiday season. It is important to remember these security tips and to take extra precautions to protect your home, your family and most importantly, your Holiday Gifts!
Leave the Christmas Lights On
Not only are Christmas Lights festive and fun, they are bright, very bright. They will illuminate anyone who is sneaking around your house. Burglars are more likely to stay away from bright glowing lights when looking for a house to break into. Even when traveling, make sure your outdoor lights are still on at night. You can purchase a simple timer from any hardware or department store to save on energy as well!
Lock Your Back Doors
In the rush of the holidays with kids, food, presents, and endless bags of stuff, we tend to always be running late. We also tend to be in a bit of a rush trying to make it to Grandma’s house on time, no one wants Grandma angry. In the midst of all this, sometimes we forget to lock the garage, or a backdoor. All a thief has to do is to go in the backyard, walk through the back door of the garage, and into the side door of the house and boom, he’s inside. Make sure you are locking all of your doors and entryways from the outside the night before you plan on leaving. Double check in the morning, before the rush of loading the car begins.
