Do remember to take some precautions before you leave. Thieves are good in detecting a house where owners are taking a vacation. If your home is obviously unoccupied, it attracts thieves.
Some tips to keep your home safe while you're away:
- Get somebody to house-sit. It may be your relatives, or maybe even just the househelp.
- Double check the locks.
- Check that your home security systems are working fine.
- Ask a trusted neighbor to check on your home's perimeter once in while.
- Set a timer for the lights so that the they automatically turn on at a certain time.
