The Best Home Security Tips (From Real Life Ex-Burglars)

Lighten Up

If you’re going on a business trip or vacation, a dark and empty house is going to alert intruders you aren’t there. 

Set up some kind of automatic lighting system so the lights go on and off periodically. This will make it look like there’s someone at home. You can buy inexpensive lighting timers and set them to come on in the evening. A burglar won’t know the house is empty.
