Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to safeguard your home during the holidays so you can enjoy this time with your friends and family.
Discourage Package Thieves
With the rise of online shopping, packages delivered to your home are a target for thieves. Consider having your goods delivered to your office, a neighbor or other point of delivery if you won't be home to receive them. If you do have packages delivered to your home, be sure the front door and walkway are visible to your neighbors, and that home security cameras provide a view of the front door.
