Keep your home safe even when you are away from home

Keep your home safe even when you are away from home

Follow these steps and you’re sure to enhance your home security and enjoy your time away from home!

 

Don’t announce you’re going away. Never mention on social media or other online platforms that you’re going away. Don’t leave a note on your door stating your absence. Criminals may take this as an opportunity to break in.

 

Create the illusion that someone is at home. Arrange for a neighbour to leave a car in your driveway during your absence. Ask for your mail to be picked up so that it doesn’t pile up at your front door. Consider getting the lawn mowed while you’re away.

 

Disconnecting the power to some of your electronics, like your desktop computer, coffee pot and television can save you money while you're gone and eliminate the worry that you've accidentally left them on by mistake.

Set up indoor and outdoor lighting. Use a timer for your indoor lights. As a result, they turn on automatically at night, making it seem that you’re at home. Also, outdoor lights equipped with motion sensors may discourage burglars from coming too close. HSS Automation also offers an interactive lighting control module that can allow you to give the appearance that you're home even when you're not!

Get a Wi-Fi Doorbell Camera from HSS Automation. With the Wi-Fi Doorbell Camera, you can see if someone is at your door, even if you’re not there. Would-be intruders will often ring the doorbell to make sure no one is home. As soon as they press the doorbell, you’ll be notified on your smartphone. You’ll then be able to speak directly with the would-be intruder through the built-in speaker and make them think someone is home!
