6 Inform your neighbours of your holiday plans so that they can keep an eye on your property Every home in every neighbourhood is a target for burglary. Listed below are some simple tips to help you protect your family and home. Inform your neighbours of your holiday plans so that they can keep an eye on your property and be sure to provide them with emergency contact details. Consider hanging old clothes on the line to give the impression someone is home or not away for an extended period of time. Lower the telephone ringing volume so that it cannot be heard from outside your home and avoid leaving a recorded message indicating that you are away. Make sure you or your children don t reveal holiday plans to strangers or online at websites such as Facebook, Myspace, Twitter or Foursquare. Ensure your house has good exterior lighting; think about installing sensor lights at entry and exit points of the house, as light acts as a deterrent to thieves. If possible, time these outside lights to switch on automatically at night. If you are going away, leave a car in the driveway, if possible, or arrange for a neighbour to keep a car there and move it around from time to time. Consider installing a monitored alarm system. While some people place their faith in an unmonitored alarm in the hope that it will deter intruders, these are unfortunately often ignored by neighbours, especially if they frequently go off. If an alarm system is in place the following additional steps are recommended: Ensure your alarm is in working order and has been serviced within the last 12 months. Advise your security company that you are going away. If you are hiring a house sitter, make sure they know how to use your alarm. Ensure you have clear signage indicating that you have an alarm system to deter burglars.
