We place a great deal of importance on the safety of our customers. The installation and repair of a garage door, as well as providing other safety tips regarding home break-ins, are necessary to ensure the safety of everyone in the home. Thieves often break into homes through garage doors. To help you and your family be more protected, especially during the holidays – we’re sharing some helpful tips today.
When combined with an abundance of presents under the tree and more time spent away from home during the holidays, it’s a burglar’s paradise. With the holidays just around the corner, make sure to keep your home safe by following these holiday security tips.
Holiday Security Tips
Tip #1: Brighten Up Your Home
Burglars are apprehensive about homes that are brightly lit as they are trying to avoid detection at all costs. Installing motion detector lights outside your home at night will trigger them whenever someone approaches your home and may deter them from trying anything suspicious.
Tip #2: Don’t Announce Your Absence
Avoid announcing your holiday travel plans to your social media friends, family and followers. Burglars will use this to their advantage when scouring for their next potential target. Social media is their best friend in the days when everyone is oversharing. Wait until you’re back home to share what you did for the holidays.
Tip #3: No Remote Left Behind
It is never a good idea to leave your garage door opener remote in an unattended vehicle. In that case, all a criminal would have to do is break into your vehicle and activate the remote to gain unlawful entry into your home.
Tip #4: Be Discreet
If you place your opened boxes and packages in your trash and/or recycling containers and put them out on the curb, thieves are likely to know what Santa left under the tree this year.
