Have you ever walked into your home and found the TV going,
the radio on with no one home and yet you wondered if anyone was there?
If your Alarm Clock Radio is programmed to turn on every day while you are
there, why not have it do the same thing every day while you are away, perhaps
even in the evening as well as in the morning. Having an alarm clock radio
turn on like this is just one way that you can give the impression that
someone is home. In addition to home alarms there are other general home
security actions you can take to protect your possessions from burglary
as well as damage from water and other environmental issues. We cover some
of the things you need
to do to protect your home and your families to ensure
that you are secure. Common sense items can make a huge difference.
Check back often as we will be updating these pages. We cover some of
the steps you should take if you are planning to go away for the weekend
as well as for several months. There is a checklist
that you can follow that will help to ensure that your home is looked after while you are
away in addition to the alarm system that you may have. It is important
to ensure that your home not only looks like it is lived in, but that
it is also checked often to avoid serious water damage or other damage
that might occur from a broken water pipe or window. These are just a
couple examples of what you need to consider before leaving on your vacation
in addition to leaving your alarm clock on while you are away.
In the mean time there is lots of good information on our main page which
you may find helpful. There is also information about setting up neighbourhood
watch programs as well. Consumers can read about how to make your doors and
windows more secure and why you should have an inventory of all of your homes
contents in case there is a fire or some other catastrophe that destroys all
of your belongings. If you have a claim can you serious remember all of the
stuff you have collected over the years. Most of us cannot, so having even
a video inventory would be a huge help.
If you plan to leave your home unoccupied
for any length of time, you should
really confirm with your insurance company regarding how often you should have
someone visit your home in addition to any alarm monitoring you have in place.
Som request daily visits while others are good with once per week. This really
depends on previous claims, type of house and potential for claims. Visit our
tips pages for additional information.
