Our travel plans might be restricted at the moment, but one day we will be free to travel abroad for a sunny beach holiday, and by then we will all be very much ready for it! But before we start packing in anticipation of two weeks in the sun, you will want to make sure your home is protected against burglaries and thieves while you’re away.
Tell a friend or neighbour
Let your most trusted friend or neighbour know your plans, how long you will be gone, give them a spare key so they can periodically check your property, pick up piles of post, turn some lights on, or turn others off, and make the house look occupied.
Notify the alarm company
If you have an alarm or security system that sends an alert to a provider, inform them that you will be away, as well as letting them know that your neighbour/friend will be checking your home and will have the security code, just in case they accidentally set it off.
Refrain from Posting on Social Media
In this day and age, is it really a holiday if you don’t post about it on social media? But you would be much better to wait until you get home to start posting your most Instagrammable holiday pics. They might be meant to show your friends what a great time you are having, but they can also inform others that you aren’t at home.
By following steps, your mind will be more at ease and you will enjoy your holiday a little bit more. If you’re looking for biometric home security devices in the UK, visit our website today.
