Keep your home safe this holiday season

Heading out to see family and friends this holiday season? For many, this is the best part of the holiday season. Before you rush out the door, make sure your home is secured.

  • close: This may seem like an obvious safety rule, but sometimes the most obvious rules are the ones we forget to follow. Don’t assume your doors and windows are closed and locked. Double check them! If you don’t already have stops on your doors, you may want to consider investing in some.
  • Avoid posting your whereabouts on social media: I’m sure you’ve seen posts from friends and relatives on vacation. Some people post everything on Facebook – even if it’s just a picture of lunch. It’s natural to want to post a photo or two on Facebook or Twitter to share your holiday fun, but wait until after you’re back to post your photos.
  • Put the lights on a timer, smart plug, or app: If you have outdoor holiday lights, put them on an automatic timer when you’re out of town. You can set the timer so that the lights come on at a certain hour each night, making it feel like you’re home. You might also consider setting some of your interior lights on timers as well.
  • Don’t hide the key: having a spare house key is a must. However, it is necessary to be careful about where this key is stored. Don’t leave it in a fake rock or put it under a doormat. Criminals know all the good hiding places. Instead, leave a key with a trusted friend or neighbor, that way you’ll have access to it when needed.
  • Ask someone to pick up your mail, or hold off your mail: There is another benefit of having friendly neighbors. They can receive your mail and newspapers. Stacking newspapers on your doorstep could be a sign that says, “Hey everyone, I’m not home.” You can also easily pause mail delivery easily on the US Postal Service website.
  • Hide any Christmas gifts: Of course, you want to keep gifts out of the eyes of children, but you also want to make sure that gifts are hidden from a potential thief. Placing beautifully wrapped presents under the Christmas tree looks great, but it’s also an open invitation for a thief. Try to keep your Christmas tree, with presents underneath, away from windows or other places with a view.

The holiday season is a joyful time of the year. Don’t let criminals spoil it.
