Holidays Safety :Security risks to your property during the Christmas holiday: Important Security Tips to keep your property safe
SECURITY is something all Propery-owners like residential complex, shopping center, or warehouse should be aware of, especially during the festive season. While Christmas is near, EaglesFord Security Services has brought you some top tips for keeping your property safe for the month of December and januray and rest of the year.
Whether you’re spending the festive season elsewhere, or you’re concerned about being burgled overnight, there’s every reason for home-owners to take precautions with their security during the Christmas season. While you may be looking to recover after the busy Christmas Day celebrations, the threat of burglars entering your home still exists. And, should the worst happen, this could definitely put a dampener on your good mood. So, what are the risks, and what should you do to maximise home security?
Make your house less attractive
Whether you’re going on a getaway, or you’re just leaving your house vacant for a matter of hours, using deterrents to stop thieves from breaking in could be a very good idea.
Alarms which will draw attention to intruders can be off-putting for thieves.
What’s more, CCTV cameras fixed to the exterior of your home could serve as a deterrent.
Move your gifts
Leaving presents under the tree may make your house feel festive, but it could be a huge risk to your home security.
While they may be wrapped in seasonal paper, burglars could easily undo your hard work, and see what’s inside.
As they’re presents, it’s likely that they’ll be brand new and potentially expensive too, making them very attractive for burglars.
Think about your rubbish
As with your presents under the tree, leaving the boxes which the products came in by your outdoor bins could serve as a huge advertisement to potential thieves.
From bicycles to laptops, branded cardboard boxes could make a huge nod to what lies indoors.
Watch your social media footprint
While it can be tempting to let your family and friends get a glimpse of your Christmas holiday, be wary about who else may see your updates online.
Publicising that you’re taking a trip on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, could mean that potential intruders are aware about when your house is likely to be empty – so keep an eye on what you’re actually sharing in public.
Keep your keys away from entrances
While a locked door may seem like enough to stop trespassers from stepping into your home, it’s important that you take additional steps to lower the risk of being burgled.
Keys which are close to letter boxes can sometimes be accessed by intruders via long sticks, so make sure you keep them out of sight.
