It’s a new year already in the air and that means it’s time for a family vacation. This winter vacation is not only the perfect opportunity to relax and spend time with the people you love, but also a good time for thieves to raise some money. Many people leave their homes and go on vacation in winter and leave their homes or apartments completely defenseless against various thieves and criminals. That is why many houses are robbed every winter. I think it would be a disaster to come home from a perfect vacation in all your good mood and find your house robbed. That is why in this article we will try to give you some recommendations and tips on how to make your home and property safe when you are out of town.
The first and easiest advice to follow will be: try to hide the fact that you are going on vacation. You should know that malefactors also use the latest gadgets and social networks, and they will certainly try to monitor the activities of their potential victims. Social network like Facebook or Twitter is a place where the victim will surely tell all of his friends that they are leaving the city. The happiest thieves even find information about when their target comes home. The best post or tweet will look like this: “To Hawaii! BRB on January 17th, let’s celebrate!” Or something like that. People are still not really careful on the internet and on various social networks. Foursquare may be the best for thieves because if you’ve checked in in Hawaii you’re 100% out of LA or NY. These web resources provide many pointers for thieves on how to plan their attack.
You should also be very careful with wireless locks and various wireless smart home systems. Most wireless locks have security holes and malefactors could try to use them. It would be cool if you managed to install an alarm system at home that is sure to give you the chance to stay higher. If you live on the first floor or in a cottage, you should make sure that all valuable and expensive things are moved away from the windows and are not visible from the outside. It would be even better to remove all luxury and other expensive items out of sight.
You should also consider building a video surveillance system at home. It is not very expensive, but a fairly effective measure. Just try to avoid wireless web cameras, they are vulnerable and your neighbor can install a Versatile wifi jammer that will surely block your efforts. These wireless devices are easier to install, but they are certainly less reliable. The Wi-Fi protocol is also quite vulnerable to various hacks.
We should also mention that there are many different devices that will help you protect your home. For example, we can mention a FakeTV. It is a small gadget the size of a coffee cup. It is equipped with 12 bright LED lamps and is used to imitate the work of a 27-inch TV. You can put it near the window and simply set a timer so the device knows when to turn it on and off. Anyone looking at your house from the outside will surely notice that a television is working there and its timing will make the evildoers think you are at home.
