3 Ways to Protect Your Home While on Vacation

At Secure Systems, we want to protect the properties of our Kern County home security customers no matter where they are — and of course, that protection should continue while you’re on vacation. Whether you’re headed for Lake Tahoe, Yosemite or somewhere further south, here are three ways you can partner with us to enjoy a more protected home while you’re away.

1. Don’t advertise vacations.

It’s tempting to share your out-of-town plans with friends on social media, but it’s much smarter to wait and post your vacation photos when you get home. By announcing your absence before it happens, you’re giving thieves and other criminals plenty of time to make plans to target your property. And even if your profiles are set to private, there’s always the chance that someone you know could be a culprit of criminal activity.

If you opt to start sharing while you’re away, that’s just as risky; criminals will know your house is empty, and this is the time to strike.  When it comes to advertising your vacation before it happens or while you’re on it, the risks outweigh the benefits.

2. Stay plugged in.

Vacation is a time to unplug from the stresses of daily life. When it comes to disconnecting from work and other responsibilities, that’s a good thing. But when it comes to your home security, it’s best to stay plugged in from wherever you are. Fortunately, Secure Systems makes that easy. Your home security mobile app can be accessed from your smartphone, tablet or laptop — whatever internet-connected device you bring along with you.

As our Kern County home security customer, you’ll receive an alert to your device if there’s an emergency, including a potential intrusion.

Meanwhile, our monitoring center is open 24/7 to respond to those emergencies and dispatch law enforcement if needed.

3. Think about enhancements.

Before you leave for vacation this summer, consider whether your home security could benefit from enhancements designed to fortify your property even more. From alarm window contacts to glass break detectors, we have extra home security devices that work with your system to provide additional protection while you’re away. Have questions about these enhancements? Give us a call.

By making sure your home is protected while you’re away, you can enjoy your getaway to its fullest. To discuss protecting your Kern County property with home security, call Secure Systems today.
