With Holidays Comes Increased Threat Of Home Burglaries | C & S Lock & Security
Many police and sheriff’s departments around the nation are warning homeowners to take proactive steps to protect their homes from burglary this holiday season.
An unfortunate outcome of the holidays is that thieves prey on homes banking on high dollar Christmas gifts to steal and empty homes with families on vacation.
To best protect your home from burglary it is most recommended to be prepared. Most importantly make sure your home is outfitted with modern door locks that are in working order. You may also want to consider installing a video surveillance system to track activity at your home.
Also it is important to keep track of your valuables so that if something is stolen you will be aware of the loss immediately. The longer it takes to realize that a burglary has taken place the less of a chance there is of recovering the items.
During the evenings and nights make sure to keep your home properly lit with indoor and outdoor lighting. If you do leave for a vacation make sure to set a timer for indoor lights and have a motion detector installed on outdoor lights.
Furthermore if you do leave your home for the holidays make sure to place your most valuable items in a home safe or strongbox to ensure access control.
