Taking a vacation from the Central Coast this upcoming summer? To ensure a stress-free time away from home, it’s important to take steps to ensure that your home remains safe and secure while you’re gone. At Sentinel Security Solutions, we understand the importance of peace of mind, which is why we’ve put together these essential tips for protecting your home.

Lock All Doors and Windows

It may seem obvious, but making sure all doors and windows are securely locked is the first line of defense against intruders. Double-check each entry point, including garage doors and windows, before you leave. Taking these simple precautions can significantly reduce the risk of unauthorized access to your home while you’re away.

Tell Trusted Neighbors or Friends You’re Leaving

Let a neighbor or trusted friend know about your travel plans. Ask them to keep an eye on your property and report any suspicious activity. Having someone look out for your home can provide additional peace of mind, knowing that there’s an extra layer of vigilance while you’re away.

Set Lights on Smart Timers

Use smart z-wave lighting to control indoor and outdoor lights with timers. Program lights to turn on and off at different times to create the appearance that someone is home. This simple trick can deter potential burglars.

While these are the basics to securing your home while away, there are long-term solutions you can take to further secure your home. Consider investing in advanced security systems to provide continuous protection and peace of mind for your property, even when you’re not there.
