Security Tips and Information

  • Don't leave notes on your mailbox or door
  • Use timers to maintain normal lighting while you are away
  • Install a peephole
  • Ensure that grass is cut while you are away
  • Never leave a spare key hidden outside. Most burglars are familiar with all of the normal hiding places
  • Have exterior lights illuminate all entrances
  • For vacation, have mail and newspaper delivery stopped or picked up by a neighbor
  • Keep shrubbery cut back far enough so your house and perimeter are visible from the street
  • Lock your doors even when you are home
  • If you valet your vehicle or are having it serviced, never leave your house key
  • Keep tools, ladders and trash cans locked away. 
  • Do not advertise big purchases by throwing the box outside for all to see
  • Do not put your home address on luggage tags
  • Never post to social media that you are away, and while away do not post vacation pictures

Remember, a security system should not be relied on all on its own
