Spending time away from your house is a great way to feel energized and refreshed. Just a week on a tropical island, foreign soil or another invigorating out-of-town location can find you ready to take on new challenges, hopeful about your future. The one thing that can put a damper on the joy of getting away from home is the worry that your house will be tested and found to be less secure than you wished.

Actions that can lead to a more secure home

Remove this unnecessary worry by taking steps to secure your house well in advance of your departure. You could even ask a relative to test the security of your locks and other safety measures to validate that they hold. Below are specific actions that you can take to enjoy a more secure and a safer home.

Lock all doors and windows before you leave. Actually walk through your home and check each lock. Pull on door handles and pull up windows to ensure that the lock is secure. Make this a daily habit that you perform even if you only plan on being away from home for 30 minutes.

Turn on your house security alarm system. If you don’t have a security alarm system,consider getting one. To save money, you could buy a home security alarm system from a house goods store and install the system yourself. Just make sure that you have solid DIY skills and install the system the right way. For extra peace of mind, you could get a security system through a major provider. If you take this route, check out the service that allows you to see the exterior and interior of your house using a smartphone.

Additional ways to a more safe and secure home

More home security and safety steps include:

  • Ask a neighbor that you know and trust to pick up your newspapers, magazines and mail.
  • Place boxes for new products that you bought or ordered in the basement, attic, garage or another room at your house that cannot be peered into from outside.
  • Close window treatments, again, so people cannot see inside your home.
  • Install and turn on light timers.
  • Tell at least two relatives that you trust that you’re going to be away from home. Also, let these family members know where you are going and when you expect to return.
  • Park your vehicle on the street or in another area a week or two before you leave for an extended period. On other days, park your vehicle in your garage. This way, people won’t be able to use seeing or not seeing your vehicle as a way to know whether or not you are home.
  • Don’t announce that you’re going away on any social media or internet sites. Also, don’t leave messages in your email or voice mail that you’re going to be away.
  • Make sure that the stove, oven and other electrical products are turned off before you leave.
  • Take pets to the sitter. A barking dog or meowing cat could help to deter people who choose to steal. But, after a while these pets could signal that they are alone.
  • Ask a relative or friend to stop by your house once a day or once every other day.

Whether you’re going on vacation, a day trip or out of town to visit with family or friends, you should have the peace of mind that your house is secure while you’re away. After all, what’s the purpose of going away if you’re only going to stress about your house the entire time? By getting into the habit of taking home security actions, you could keep your home safe regardless of where you are. Good home safety habits can also protect your family at night.
