Free tips on how to protect your home from theft while on vacation
The weather is warming up. Holidays are approaching. It is very important that they do not come out of your nose. So you have to make sure that you have left the house safe: from a possible flood, from a possible fire that you have in hand to control well before closing the door, but also from theft.
There are several ways to help.
First do not post on social media where you are
Do not reveal the location. A thief may be following you on social media. If I know you are far away it is easier to get into your house.
Leave the radio on
Most thieves knock on the door before entering. If they hear no sound from the other side, they will break down the door. A turned on TV or radio would certainly step in to enter, thinking there were people inside.
Park the car outside the house, if you have not taken it with you
So the thieves will think that there is movement in the house and that you are inside.
Delete any possible paper you no longer need
That if someone enters the house, they will check everything and valuable is not just money.
Put paper windows or close the curtains
Do not leave the field thief in your home. That if he sees that for certain hours or days no one is home, then he will enter quietly.
Create a security safe
Put ostensibly valuables in a box. From some fake watch that looks expensive, to fake money. Leave it in an easily accessible place. He put real money and valuables where even the most professional thief does not expect it. They will surely take the box they find first and leave with everything fake.
Put the house number on the front door and make it visible
Thieves are more likely to enter the house without visible addresses. In case of alarm, the Police themselves will find it difficult to find the address, so they can easily escape and leave.
Do not post house key pictures on social media
Some people do it unconsciously. The keys can be on the table while photographing his hand and watch or taking a selfie. But did you know that people can copy your key even by looking at it in pictures?
Make friends with neighbors
It is important to have some communication. So if they see anything suspicious when you are not at home they will at least have the kindness to call the Police.
