It's hard to believe that once again we are ready to launch into the Christmas and holiday period. Where has 2017 gone? It just flew by. But before you dive into holiday fever, buying presents, making holiday plans and sorting the Christmas or New Year feasts, this is the perfect time to look at your home security needs and to make any necessary security updates you may require.
Here are some precautions that you may need to take before you plan any holidays.
Be Careful Who You Communicate Your Plans to
A little extra vigilance will help keep your property and belongings safer while you are gone and will keep you from obsessing about security once you're on the road to fun and adventure. Make sure you do not share your holiday plans on social media as it can make your house an easy target for the potential burglars.
Double Check Everything Before You Leave Your Home
Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year and our minds are preoccupied with various thoughts like "If I am not missing anything" or "If I will reach airport on time". But with all these thoughts going in your mind, it's easy to forget to double check your home before you head off for holidays. Make sure you double check all the locks in your house and leave no loopholes behind.
Keep Your Christmas Decorations and Gifts Safe
Don't put Christmas trees and decorations near windows as this can invite potential burglars to your home. If you have bought lavish presents for Christmas, make sure you keep them out of sight. Also, dispose of all the packaging for the new items as you do not wish to advertise your valuables to thieves. Make sure to keep Christmas trees and decorations at the safest place as they can catch fire easily.
Install Security Cameras
Before you leave your home alone, make sure you install 24/7 monitored security and CCTV security system in your home. This will provide you peace of mind if your home experiences any security breach as our 24/7 control room will be notified which in turn can use the CCTV system for video confirmation of any incident before they dispatch the patrol car to your home to investigate further.
