Burglars at Work while You are on Vacation!

That’s awesome!  You deserved it.  You worked hard for it!  And the last thing you need is to come home to a house that has been robbed!  So now that vacation season is coming, we at Rendin Alarm Company want to dispense our annual advice! There are many things, which you can do to protect your home while you are away.  This way you can enjoy your vacation without worrying about your home.  Here are some ways you can help protect your home while you are away.

Pack your vehicle the night before you leave when it is dark out to avoid “advertising” that you will be away.
Avoid that one neighbor who asks loudly from across the street “HEY! Y’all going away? Have fun!”

Have a neighbor grab your mail and newspapers, etc.
A pile-up is a tell-tale sign you are away.

Put your lights on a timer.
Create the appearance your home is occupied.

Double Check that all windows and doors (on every floor) are locked.  Make sure your garage is locked as well.
Make it a challenge for goodness sake!

Make sure the perimeter of your home is well lit.
This way the neighbors can report anything suspicious they may see.

Hire someone to mow your lawn while you are away.
A freshly cut lawn indicates you are around.

Keep a car in your driveway.
Again – looks are deceiving!
