Include Home Security Into your Travel Plans
With warmer weather, comes the desire to travel. But before you pack up and head out, make sure you aren’t neglecting security of the home that you’re leaving behind.
Here are a few tips that can help protect your home while you are away.
Limit sharing of your travel plans.
Sharing your travel plans is exciting but keep your traveling plans off social media. With millions of people on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, you never know who you are inviting into your unoccupied home. Avoid sharing your location and posting pictures until you return home.
Prevent burglars from choosing your home.
Burglars prefer to break in to homes that are unoccupied. One way to protect your belongings is to make it appear as though you are home. ADT Pulse Automation is the most effective way to make burglars believe you are home. You can control lights, televisions, and doors all with just a click of a button. An enhanced ADT home security system, complete with surveillance cameras, allows you the power to see what’s going on in your home while you are away. You can also receive alerts straight to your cell phone, tablet or computer.
Statistics show that the only homes secured by an ADT alarm system that are successfully burglarized are simply because the homeowner left the security system unarmed. Get in the habit of arming your home security system before you leave for vacation.
Deny easy access to your belongings.
It takes less than 60 seconds for a burglar to gain access to your home through the front door.
