4 Things You Must Do Before Going On Vacation

Traveling is an opportunity to see the world and experience life from a brand new perspective. At the same time, you want to make sure that everything at home is safe and sound. These four tips will help any globetrotter prepare for their journey in a practical and realistic way.

After all, according to ADT, nearly 66% of all burglaries are residential home break-ins. Taking these steps to burglar-proof your property will give you peace of mind during your vacation.

Avoid talking about specifics on social media

You know and trust everyone on your social media accounts, right? Even people who seem trustworthy may be out to get you. According to the EO Network, due to complex privacy settings, strangers and criminals may be able to see the things you post and share.

Talking about your travel plans openly on social media leaves you vulnerable to attack. People will know when you are out of the house; they can easily plan a break-in that could have been prevented by practicing some basic online privacy.

Install motion-activated cameras

These sensitive security devices are easy to install and can be routed directly to your smartphone or computer. They turn on when motion is detected and begin recording. You can closely monitor what is happening on your property even when you’re not at home. If a robbery does occur, you will have the crime on tape and can present this footage to the police.

Consider hiring a house sitter

Thieves staking out a neighborhood are sensitive to people’s comings and goings. When they see you leaving with your luggage, they are quick to attack. An empty house is a house just waiting to be broken in to. Frequent activity around a property deters burglars; a house sitter is a good deterrent.

Remember, over two-thirds of all burglaries are residential home break-ins. Hire a trusted friend or family member to spend prolonged periods of time at your property so that your home is still fully occupied.

Keep valuables in a safe

Don’t make yourself a target. Store your valuables in a safe that only you can access. There are many affordable models of , and they are available in many different sizes.

Think Carefully About Home Security

While home security is important to think about all year round, it’s especially important to take care of before a vacation. Many burglars are opportunistic; if they notice your home is empty and vulnerable, it will become a target.

Home security is often a matter of thinking creatively. Taking reasonable precautions before leaving on a family vacation can help ensure that you return home to an environment that is the same as you left it.
