Three Best Home Security Tips For Travelers

MORRISVILLE, N.C. - Feb. 19, 2019 - PRLog -- You have packed your bags. The hotel reservations and airline tickets are printed. You are just about to -get ready and head out to that awesome holiday trip, business trip or the much-awaited weekend escape.

But in the chaos, did you stop and thought about smart home security system?

Irrespective of where you are going, your absence makes your house more liable to break-ins since burglars are continuously eyeing for an easy target. Don't let your home be on their target list.

Here are three tips to keep your house safe while you are off drinking cocktails in Hawaii.

Protect Your Home and Valuables

Before you leave make sure you locked every door. Secure the windows and doors, and put valuables away in safe storage, keep them out of sight. Turn on your home alarm system.

If you haven't installed a smart home security system, consider adding one before you go on a trip. This way, your household will be watched while you are away and your house is protected. Interactive home security systems ( ) even let you keep a check while away through your mobile phone or computer, giving you the ability to see camera footage, remotely turn on/off lights and arm/disarm your security system from afar. This can be a tremendously prized feature if you travel frequently or will be gone for a prolonged period.

Numerous home security systems give you the ability to unlock and lock doors remotely, which can be convenient if you ask a friend or neighbor to watch your house but don't want to give them a key.

Maintain External Appearances

Burglars are in search of easy targets, and a vacant home is just that. Discourage break-ins by crafting the impression that you never left. Some easy points comprise:

Put your smart lights ( ) on regulators so that it looks like somebody is home, even if you are not. Change the rooms and control of lights so as not to reveal patterns.

Ask your neighbors to collect your mail or packages or newspapers.

Keep your yard maintained. If you will be gone for a long time, have somebody cut your grass. If you will be away in the winter, employ someone to spade your snow, or at least ask a neighbor to leave a few footmarks daily.

Ask your neighbor to park their car in your garage or driveway.

Don't Publicize Trips on Social Networks

Be cautious about what you share on social media. Thieves have chosen homes based on social media status updates. By sharing that you are "off having fun on a Hawaiian cruise," or "climbing to see a waterfall in Hawaii," you are also circuitously publicizing that you are not home. This makes you a straightforward target.

While you might be enthusiastic to share your latest holiday trips with friends and family, err on the side of well-being and save the stories and photos for after your coming back.
