Going on Holiday? Security Measures To Keep Your Home Safe

When you leave your home, whether it is for a quick weekend getaway or an extended summer vacation, you should always take home security measures to keep your house and belongings as safe as you can.

One of the best ways to do this is to invest in a home security system. Research has shown that homes without such security are three times more likely to be broken into than homes equipped with a system.

At Frontline Security, a Calgary-based alarm company, we can provide customized home security systems to add to your protection and peace of mind, whether you are at home or away.

3 Ways A Home Security System Can Keep Your Vacant House Safe

A holiday is a chance to escape the day-to-day and relax. So it’s important to have your home properly prepared before you leave to avoid any unnecessary worry or, worse still, a message from home that someone has broken in.

Here are 4 ways that a customized home security system can help protect your home and belongings from any vandalism or potential burglaries.

  1. IP Surveillance Cameras

IP surveillance cameras are an important part of a home security system and play a key role in preventing crime and apprehending burglars.

These digital video cameras can send and receive information via a network or the internet, so you have access to the feed no matter where you are. Some of their incredible benefits include:

  • Remote accessibility
  • High image quality
  • Can be installed indoors and outdoors
  • Can be tailored to fit your home security needs

  1. Smart Home Technology

Smart home technology can be a useful tool for protecting your home while you are away on vacation.

This advanced home security technology allows you to keep an eye on your property from anywhere in the world by sending activity alerts straight to your web-enabled device including a smartphone or tablet.

In addition, smart home technology can also save you money on heating bills and prevent you from coming home to a chilly house -  with a press of a button, you can program your lights and central heating to turn on a few minutes before you get home

  1. Alarm System

Alarms are one of the best forms of home security. In fact studies have indicated that 83% of burglars will check to see if a home has an alarm system before breaking in and 60% of them would seek an alternative target if a home had such a security system.

Not only do home alarm systems immediately inform the police and warn homeowners of potential danger, hearing one is often enough to send a burglar running.

Additional Home Security Tips While You Are Away

Aside from investing in a comprehensive home security system, here are some simple and easy ways to keep your home safe while you are on holiday.


Alert your alarm company

If you already have a home security system, notify your alarm company before leaving. This is especially important if you are going on an extended vacation.

Make sure all the doors and windows are locked

Before you leave, ALWAYS remember to lock all your doors, windows and garage.

Schedule Regular Checkups

You may wish to leave your house keys with trustworthy friends or family members so that they can conduct regular checkups of your property while you are away.

Pay your bills before you leave

Remember to pay your bills in advance - especially your electricity bill - so that your alarm system and any electricity-reliant home security measures will work during your absence.
