Keeping your home secure during the holidays

It’s the busiest travel time of the year which means many people are leaving home for the holidays.

The traditional safety tips like suspending your newspapers and mail or making it appear like your home remain very practical.

But it’s 2015 and that means securing your home, even when you’re not there is simpler than ever before.

With the holiday season in full gear, it’s the most dangerous time of the year for your home.

But in this day of advanced technology it sometimes takes just a swipe of your finger to have a full grip on your home.

Apps like Canary allow you to track everything going on even when you’re hundreds of miles away.

The app uses a device under 150 dollars that’s equipped with an HD camera with night-vision, motion sensors, and a microphone.

And if you’re looking to go the free route, you can download the alarm.com which connects you to your already existing home security system and provides real time alerts.

If you’re not a tech-savvy person there are other simple ways to protect your home during the holidays.

Don’t post on social media that you’re leaving town and secure spare keys.
