Tips To Keep Your Home Secure While You’re On Vacation

 

  1. Lock Up

Of course, the most important tip to protect your home is to double-check that every access point is closed and locked up. That includes downstairs and upstairs doors and windows. Residential Locksmith Perth companies like Perth Locksmiths WA provides a range of high-quality and affordable locks and more to give your home the protection it needs. You can also amp up security by installing a security alarm system for your front door.

 

  1. Ask a Friend or Neighbour to Keep an Eye on Your Home

Although it isn’t as commonplace these days, there are many benefits to befriending your neighbours. For one, you can ask them to keep a watchful eye on your home while you’re away and at the very least let them know that nobody will be home for a while.

  1. Use Your Appliances to Make it Look Like Your Home

Although it might cost you a little more in electricity bills, having the lights or TV on is a powerful deterrent for any criminals thinking of robbing your place. You can ask a trusted neighbour to turn appliances such as lights, the television or radio on at certain times or you can even set some of these things on a timer. Any sign that there may, in fact, be someone home will help keep burglars and intruders at bay.

 

  1. Have a Friend or Neighbour Collect Your Mail

Piles of mail stacking up is a clear sign that no one’s home. Having a friend or neighbour collect your mail can prevent this from happening. As an added bonus, your mail will also be secure and not get lost or weather damaged.

 

  1. Have a Neighbour Park on Your Driveway

If you are friendly enough with a neighbour, they may be willing to park their car in your driveway every once in a while. This is another tactic to make it look like there are people living in the house.

 

  1. Have Regular Check-Ups

Having someone you trust to stop by your home can really put your mind at ease. By giving a trusted friend or family member a spare key, you can request them to drop by to water your plants or just to double-check that you turned off the gas or didn’t leave your back door unlocked.
