Security Away From Home

  • Activate the motion detector or other alarm system, if you have one, when you leave home.
  • Ask a neighbor to tend the yard and watch your home when you are away.
  • Have a friend or neighbor park their vehicle on your driveway.
  • Install at least 2 light timers and set them to turn the lights on and off in a logical sequence when you are away for an extended time period.
  • Stop mail and newspaper deliveries or arrange for a neighbor or friend to pick them up when traveling away from home for a period of time.
