Keeping Your Home Secure During The Busy Holiday SeasonNovember 30th, 2015 | by Provision Home | in Security Advice News and Blog Articles
It’s the most wonderful time of the year – and also the most busy! The holiday season is full of activity, from visiting friends and relatives to heading out the door for shopping excursions, parades, and concerts. Your calendar is sure to be packed during the festive season, which can pose some problems when it comes to home security.
First off, you may be out of your house more frequently with such a steady burst of festive activities pulling you out the door. You need to ensure that your house is secure each and every time you leave. This includes checking locks, on both windows and doors, arming your security system, and knowing what to do in the event of a break-in while you are away.
Some people end up leaving their homes for an extended period of time over the holiday season. If you are spending the holidays out of town, consider beefing up your home security while you are away. Lights on timers can make it look like you are home when you are not, and having someone clear snow, pick up mail, and otherwise prevent things from building up outside the house helps make it look less like your home has been left unattended.
Finally, if you are hosting holiday parties or other open-door events, be aware of who is coming in and out of your home. Security cameras can help with this. You may be expecting holiday guests and want to leave your doors unlocked, but you should still have a way to keep track of comings and goings, and a way to prevent unwanted visitors from gaining access to your home.
