Ways to Make Your Home Look Occupied While Vacationing

Leaving your home noticeably empty when you go on vacation makes it an easy target for burglars. Making your home look like it’s occupied, however, can help keep burglars away. Here are some ideas to implement before traveling:

  • Use timers for lights radios or televisions since homes with light and noise are less attractive to burglars. Buy timers that allow you to program them for different times each day.
  • Stop mail & newspaper deliveries while you are gone.
  • Mow your lawn and trim hedges before you go. If you will be gone for an extended period of time, arrange for someone to do it in your absence.
  • Park a car in your driveway.
  • Keep blinds and curtains closed to obstruct anyone from clearly seeing that no one is inside.
