New Year’s Eve is fast approaching and for many Atlanta families, that means a night out on the town celebrating. Whether they attend a party or head to dinner with friends is their choice. However, regardless of how they choose to ring in January 1, residents should do their best to ensure their home is protected while they’re away.
One of the simplest and most effective ways to do that is to fool burglars into thinking you are inside your residence. It’s important to keep in mind that the majority of robberies occur during the day when family members are at work or school. That means before going anywhere this December 31, you should try to make it look like you are home.
There are many ways to do this. You can keep the television going, play music if you have outside speakers or leave a light on when you leave. But, if you select for the third option, it’s wise to install compact fluorescent bulbs because not only do they last longer, they are also more environmentally friendly.
Finally, remember that one of the best defenses against unwanted intruders is a high-quality and working residential burglar alarm. Not only do top of-the-line systems connect you to a nearby call center right away if it is activated, but many of them come equipped with technology that allow you to monitor your home even when you aren’t there.
If you aren’t the owner of an alarm monitoring system, then don’t wait another minute to safeguard your home.
