Protecting your home is not an easy task even when you are around. Therefore, having to go away for a few days could be a nightmare for many homeowners. Below is a look at some simple tips that can help you to secure your property and valuables when away on vacation.

Tips for protecting my home

1.    Good Neighborliness

Good neighbors are a great deterrent to burglars. Your neighbor is likely to hear if someone tries to break into your home, or spot any suspicious people casing your house. As such, you should have a trusted neighbor watch over your home and have him/her inform you of any suspicious activity.

2.    Perimeter Checks

Sometimes, you may be in a hurry to leave such and in doing so, forget to lock a door orhome protection window. Unlocked doors and windows provide weak spots that criminals can use to gain easy access into your home. As such, it is important that you take time to conduct a perimeter sweep before leaving. Check that all entrances including doors, windows and gates are securely locked.

3.    House Keys

Many homeowners give out their spare keys to family members, friends and even neighbors. Anyone with keys has unlimited access to your home. As such, it is possible for such people to abuse the trust you bestow upon them, especially when you are away. For this reason, it is important to ensure that very few trusted people have a copy of your keys.

4.    Lighting

Installing adequate lighting is the other useful measure to ensure that your home is safe. Burglars usually lurk in the dark as they case their targets or wait to attack. Poor lighting makes it easier for them since they cannot be detected. On the other hand, interior lights give the impression that someone is at home. As such, installing light timers will ensure that your lights are switched on at preset intervals to help deter criminals.

5.    Home Security System

A comprehensive home security solution comprising of an alarm system and security cameras are essential in securing your home from a range of threats, including smoke and fire, and burglary.
