The purpose of a vacation is to relax and enjoy yourself without having
to worry about what is going on anywhere else. You can do this with the
help of the knowledgeable team from Armstrong Lock & Security Products,
Inc. Continue on to find out how to keep your home safe while you are
Communicate With Neighbors
One helpful tactic for
keeping your home safe when you are away is pretending that the home is still currently being
lived in. Burglars and other criminals tend to be less likely to target
a house if they think someone is home; thus it helps to create the illusion
that you are inside. Have your neighbors retrieve your mail or come over
and turn the lights on and off once in a while to support this illusion.
Lock Your Home
In addition to deterring criminals from wanting to break into your home,
it also helps to make it as difficult as possible for them to do so. When
you are away for long periods of time it is a good idea to add several
layers of security. Consider making use of a high security locks and/or
secondary locks on doors and windows. These investments can help add another
layer of security your home while you are away.
Store Your Valuables
It is typically wise to put away your valuable possessions before you leave
for your vacation. This will make your home a less appealing target for
burglars, and it will preserve your belongings in the event of a break
in. Fire rated or record safes are helpful in this scenario in that they
offer you a secure place to store your belongings, not to mention they
are great to use on a regular basis, giving you piece of mind while you
are at work or running errands.
