Protecting your Home | Security Considerations.

The following are some considerations for protecting your home whether or not you lease a property, or you are the owner. There are some who watch for signs that a property has been left, or when people go on vacation.

1. If you are posting you vacation on social media sites, you might want to wait until you come home, or have someone staying in your property in your absence. Otherwise you might be alerting others that your property is vacant.

2. Review your home owner's insurance policy, and determine what is covered.

3. If you lease your property, make sure you have renters insurance to cover the contents.

4. Neighborhood watch programs are really important and if your neighborhood does not have one, you can establish one in your area. Also, let neighbors know if you are leaving. You can also call the Police or local law enforcement and let them know you are out of the area, and ask if they would patrol the area.

5. Motion-detector lights are an easy and inexpensive addition that turn on automatically when someone walks by.

6. Automatic timers controlling your lights are another easy and inexpensive addition.

7. If you have a key pad with for your garage, be sure to change the code on a regular basis. And it is probably best not to give it out to too many people!

8. Take an inventory of your possessions, and you can photograph them or video them. And store it in a place where you can easily access such as dropbox.

9. If you are going away for an extended time frame, be sure to turn turn off mail, newspapers (if you still receive any), and bottled water delivery.

Try to avoid signs that you are gone and your house is vacant.
