Prepare your home for your holiday
We’re on the eve of Christmas and New Year holidays, getting ready to pile into the car and head off on our annual getaway with family and friends.
However, it’s important not to advertise to the outside world that no-one is home.
For ultimate peace of mind, consult a security specialist before you and your family leave on your Christmas travels.
There are, however, some simple measures to consider.
Sensor lights help illuminate activity around a house at night. Make sure the lights are fitted with new globes before you head off on your travels.
Mow your lawn just before leaving, lock the garage and shed, and keep the second car, if you have one, in the driveway.
It’s a good idea to cancel your mail and newspaper deliveries while you are away. A clogged mail box and a front yard littered with daily papers is an obvious sign that no-one is home.
Get a friend or reliable neighbour to keep a watch on the place as well – it will help you enjoy your holiday more.
