Getting away is perfect for relaxing, but in order to relax, you have to have confidence that your home is safe while you are away. By taking some simple steps, you can be more confident that everything will be well while you are away. 

Arm your security system

If you have a home security system, it can only help protect your home if it is armed and ready. Making sure it is operational and will do its job is important. 

Stop your mail

You can go to the postal service website and set up a temporary stop. Always start it a day or two early to make sure that it is actually working. 

Talk to your neighbors

If you are friendly with your neighbors at all, let them know you will be away and ask that they keep their eyes open for anything unusual. If you are not friendly with your neighbors, have a friend or family stop by while you are away to make sure things are okay. 

Don’t announce your plans

Don’t announce your plans on social media. You never know who might see your plans and take advantage of your absence. Share your pictures when you return, but not while you are away.
