December 6, 2016

Our homes are our safe havens. Yet around the holidays, millions of people are often traveling or away from home for many hours.  Keep your haven safe with some of these tips that The Co-operative Insurance Company unearthed by talking with 25 former burglars


Most effective home security measures:

Motion activated security lights

Security cameras

Barking dogs

Security systems/alarms


Least effective home security measures:

Beware of dog signs

Noisy gravel driveways

Keeping lights on/lights on timers


Another thing to remember is to stop your mail deliveries if you will be gone for an extended period of time.  That’s a dead giveaway the house is unoccupied.

Enjoy the holidays and keep your home safe with these tips.
