Stop Mail/Paper Delivery
One of the biggest attention getters for burglars is papers laying on the porch or mail collecting in the mailbox. Stopping your service is the best way to prevent that from happening. If you don’t want to stop your delivery service, have your neighbor or a family member collect your mail/paper for you.
Set Timers for Your Lights and Home Security System
If you have a home security system, set timers so that your lights will go on and off according to your normal schedule. This can also be accomplished without a home security system. All you have to do is purchase timers that can be used on individual lights and set to the appropriate time.
