Holidays are a time for the hard working to relax, unwind and get a change of scenery but they are also a period when criminals are on high alert for signs of easy prey and empty houses.
- A still, dark house with no movement during the day and no lights turned on at night alerts criminals that the home is unoccupied and an easy target. But don't go bananas and leave all the lights on. Just leave a few lights on in the rooms of the house that you would usually turn on in the evening. Purchase a timer at a hardware store, to set the lights to turn on and off at certain times.
