Summer is here and it is the time of year that we all look forward to a holiday. Whether you are heading on a camping trip in the woods or are jetting off to a tropical island, you will be leaving your house vacant for the duration of the holiday.
Unfortunately, your well-earned holiday is an invitation to burglars who will want to get into your home. So, before you go, think about the following ways that you can improve the security of your home and make it a lot less appealing to a burglar.
Even though you are looking forward to your holiday, do not put anything on social media announcing that you will be away. This will be something that a burglar will be able to read and know the dates they will be able to access your empty home.
An alarm system like those installed by CCTV Manchester based company Red Dam is a great way to protect your home and they act as a great deterrent to thieves as they are much less likely to attempt to break into a house with a visible alarm system and cameras.
Get a friend or neighbour to come into your home every day whilst you are away to collect post and generally make it look lived in. If you vary the times that they come a burglar won’t be able to work out their routine either.
