What to do in your home before vacation
As summer approaches, many of you are planning to have a getaway. With all the packing and scheduling, it is easy to forget tho safely secure your home. Here are a few ideas you probably didn't think of for your planned departure.
- Make sure your home feels lived in. Let the neighbors know you'll be gone. Buy a few timers to turn the lights on in the evening and off again later to give the home a feeling of someone is inside.
- Consider installing a security camera. The cost of these has come way down. They are easy to set up and some even record motion and you can speak through them and even hit a siren on some models.
- Remember to remove all the trash from inside the home so you don't return to a big stink.
