The Christmas Holiday season is upon us and so is the rise in Holiday crimes. Christmas is the time of year that families come together to enjoy celebrating the holiday and exchanging gifts. The tradition of putting up Christmas decorations and lights has been a way for families to come together each year. The department stores around the country enjoy the huge increase in sales as families participate in buying gifts for friends and loved ones. Airports also experience a huge increase in the amount of travelers going on vacation or going home for the Christmas Holidays. With the Christmas holidays upon us, the concern for becoming a crime victim during this special time is also a major concern. The following Christmas holiday home security safety tips are intended to help you enjoy your Christmas holiday season without the fear of becoming a victim. While all of these home security tips are intended to make you less likely to become a burglary victim, having an ADT Security Miamisystem installed is the best way to avoid becoming a victim.
Top Home Security Safety TipsHome Security Tip: While we all want to display our beautiful Christmas trees which we spend time an effort to meticulously decorate, it can also be a way of alerting burglars. Christmas trees should not be placed in front of a window that can be clearly looked into by a burglar. By placing your Christmas where it is clearly visible to anyone from the street, you are basically leaving yourself wide open for a burglary. Burglars know that where there's a christmas tree, there's plenty of wrapped gifts. Having an ADT Security alarm system obviously makes it easier to avoid having to be concerned about where to put your Christmas tree.
Home Security Tip: If you plan on going out of town, there are several things to consider. First, make sure that you install inexpensive timers for your lights to indicate that the home is not unoccupied for a long period of time. Next, make sure you have a friend or relative come by and pick up your mail and newspapers. A stack of newspapers or mail bulging out of your mailbox is a clear indication that you are on vacation. ADT Security Miami alarm systems can be integrated to turn lights in your home on and off at preset days and times.
Home Security Tip: If you are planning on going out of town, make sure that you leave a key with a friend or neighbor. Never ever leave a key under the front door mat or in a flower pot next to the main entry door. During this time of year, burglars look for things like this for easy entry. Leaving a hide away key is one of the things that burglars look for during this time of year. ADT Security Miami alarm systems can also be integrated with door locks at your front door that can be opened with a wireless key or code. This makes it possible for you to not have to leave a key with anyone.
Home Security Tip: Another way of becoming a high risk for becoming a home burglary victim is by giving burglars east access. Many time we want to decorate our home during the Christmas season by installing lights outside our home but forget those lights need power. What most of us do in this case is the most logical thing we can think of, which is to leave a window or door open to allow us to run an extension cord. This means that we are intentionally leaving access wide open for a burglar to come in. Burglars know that outdoor christmas lights means doors and windows are being left wide open. And what's worse is that most homeowners will simply go to work and leave these extension cords going thru the unlocked doors and windows. While it can be a bit costly, the solution is to have a licensed electrician install outdoor electric outlets that you can plug into externally. Having an ADT Security system gives peace of mind knowing that if a door or window is opened, an alarm condition will occur.
These are just a few things to consider during this Christmas holiday season to not become a victim. While all of these home security tips are a great way to help prevent burglars from entering your home, this does not replace the benefit of having an ADT Home Security system.
