Home Security tips for Holidays


Holiday seasons are happy seasons. People wait all year for the holiday season such as Christmas. During this time houses are decorated beautifully with lights and decorations.

However home security during holidays are also very important. Home security protection is a must. There are some tips which you can follow in order to keep yourself secure:

  • Do not display your items in front of the windows in such a way that it is visible from the street. It is tempting for burglars to smash the window and steal the items.
  • Burglars look for occupancy opportunities like lights burning 24 hours, piled up newspapers or flyers hanging on a door knob. To avoid burglary, ask a neighbor to keep the front of your house clean and also to remove flyers or stacked paper.
  • Keeping spare keys is a good thing but do not keep them in places that is accessible to all such as flowerpots, under rocks or above door ledges. Giving the key to a trusted neighbor is advisable.
  • Keep your doors and windows always locked. Sliding doors or windows that are not locked can be seen from a distance. This will tempt the burglars to slide into the house and steal.
  • Do not write your family name on your mailbox or on your house. A smart burglar can call the directory assistance to get the phone number and call at home to confirm whether you are away or not.
  • Do not leave descriptive telephone messages saying that you are away. Burglars wait for this opportunity in order to ransack the house.
  • After buying expensive items for the house, do not leave the empty boxes in front of your house. Recycle or discard them straight away so that burglars do not come to know that you have bought expensive items.
  • Fortify the home by installing solid doors, heavy duty locks, door hinges, and install secondary security devices on all accessible sliding windows.
