Protecting Your Home For The Fall Season
As much as it pains us to say it, summer is steadily drawing to a close. The passing of Labor Day weekend is always the harbinger of autumn, signaling the cold weather and warm clothes akin to the season.
During the holiday seasons, there are a lot of family visits and other expected holiday related vacations. For burglars, this means that there will be an increase in predictable home vacancies.
The installation of these sensors takes minutes and can prevent a lot of pain and money in the future. As a side note: these are great for anyone who owns multiple properties, as they give you the power to monitor your property’s temperature from far away.
Landscaping for Safety
Studies have actually shown that a clean well kept lawn can make a home looked more lived in and actually scare burglars away from your home. Protect yourself against this sort of problem with our freeze sensors.
Perfect for any home
in an area with cold winters, these sensors notify your security system if the temperature around them drops below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. For example, the cold weather can bring distress to
your pipes, causing them to burst and resulting in expensive repairs and property damage. While this is wonderful for airing out the house or simply enjoying the summer air, it can present a problem if forgotten once summer turns to autumn. While these threats aren’t always capable of posing a direct danger to you, they can be costly. Make sure to keep your lawn orderly in autumn so that your house doesn’t project an air of vacancy that might attract undesirable attention.
Rake your leaves, don’t leave pumpkins and other seasonal decorations out to the point of rotting and, if you’re headed for a vacation, have one of your neighbors collect your mail so it doesn’t build up.
Secure your Windows
In the summer, homeowners will often take storm screens and panels off of their exterior windows, leaving an easier medium for entrance into the home. Make sure that you take the time to affix the storm doors and windows back on to the exterior of your home. That’s never more true than in autumn, when negligible yard care becomes even more noticeable due to the accumulation of falling leaves. One of the last things that homeowners tend to consider when assembling a strong home security presence is threats that come from inside the home. This will prevent autumn storms from causing the glass to break, leaving a hazard for you and your family and a potential entrance for burglars.
While you’re doing this, you may want to consider installing door. Having a freeze alert go directly to your cell phone gives you ample time to assess the situation and react accordingly before you have a true emergency situation on your hands.
