10 Holiday Home Security Tips to Keep Things Merry and Safe…

November 17, 2023

As the holiday season approaches, it's crucial to double check the security of your home. Here are 10 recommended home security changes and practices to consider:

  1. Smart Security System Integration: Invest in a modern smart security system that integrates with your smartphone. This allows you to monitor your home remotely, receive alerts, and even control aspects of your security system on the go.
  2. Outdoor Lighting: Upgrade outdoor lighting to motion-activated LED lights. Well-lit exteriors can deter potential intruders and provide better visibility for security cameras.
  3. Visible Security Measures: Make sure your security measures are visible. Display security system signs and stickers, as a visible deterrent can discourage burglars.
  4. Secure Doors and Windows: Reinforce entry points. Install deadbolt locks, upgrade doors to solid cores, and consider installing security film on windows to make them more resistant to break-ins. Don’t forget to double check all your locks before leaving on holiday trips.
  5. Smart Doorbell Camera: Install a smart doorbell camera that allows you to see and communicate with visitors even when you're away. Some models also have motion detection capabilities. Communicating directly with visitors, even remotely, can give criminals pause as to whether or not anyone is presently home.
  6. Package Delivery Solutions: With the increase in online shopping and related front porch theft during the holidays, consider using package delivery lockboxes or smart lock systems to secure deliveries and prevent package theft. Some services, like the US Postal Service, can delay mail delivery during a specified date range.
  7. Timed Interior Lighting: Create the illusion of an occupied home by using smart plugs or timers to control interior lights. This can help deter burglars who may be watching for signs of an empty house.
  8. Neighbor Communication: Foster a sense of community by communicating with neighbors about holiday travel plans. They can keep an eye on your property, and you can return the favor when they're away.
  9. Social Media Caution: Be mindful of what you share on social media. Avoid broadcasting travel plans or the fact that your home will be vacant. This information could be exploited by potential burglars.
  10. Emergency Contact Information: Update your emergency contact information with your security system provider, ensuring they can reach you or someone you trust in case of an alert or emergency.

By implementing these security measures, you can enjoy the holiday season with a greater peace of mind, knowing that your home is well-protected.
