Commissionaires’ Tips to Keep Your Home Safe While You’re Away

Travelers ask us how they can keep their home safe while they’re away over the holidays. Burglars look for an easy target. Show them that you aren’t one by making it look like someone’s home. Use a timer for both indoor and outdoor lights, have someone shovel your driveway, and leave a radio on for noise. Avoid broadcasting that you’ll be away on Facebook; or other social media – burglars aren’t above looking you up online.

Keep in mind that many standard home insurance plans don’t cover damage that happens in an unmonitored house. Commissionaires offers Homewatch: regularly scheduled, home monitoring services. We also provide a house visit schedule that’s required by your insurance company.
