We operate our business in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (as well as Maryland) and we are often reminded how lucky we are as most people vacation where we live and work!
Myrtle Beach is an amazing place to live and a great place to raise a family. The Grand Strand is growing, expanding and that means more businesses are opening up and more people are moving here. We’ve been very busy helping many local home owners and new business owners with their security needs in the last few years installing cameras, panels, and more and there’s no end in sight! (Yes, we’re smiling!)
Sometimes, though, even we get tired of working hard all the time. Dare I say we get tired of the beach, the putt-putt and ‘gasp’, the tourists?! Eventually everyone needs a break, right? When we do get a break here at Strand Security, there’s ONE thing we do not worry about.
We at Strand Security do not worry about leaving our home or our business while we are on vacation.
Why? Be cause we know the signs thieves and burglars are looking for so we take measures to make it look like we are around and we have the best security systems installed, of course (did you expect us to not mention that?)
Here are 7 ways to protect your home while you go on vacation or ‘7 ways to deter a burglar from breaking into your home while you are on vacation!’
Doing all or some of these things will not 100% guarantee that your house will not be broken into. They will, however, make the chances of that happening much lower.
Smart burglars – and yes, there are some smart and sophisticated burglars and thieves out there – will avoid confrontation. They do not want to come to your home while you are home. They do not want to break down a door, they’d rather find one unlocked. They do not want an alarm set off. They’d much rather burglarize a home without a system.
Don’t make it so easy for someone to enter your home while you are away! Deter everyone and secure your home.
The last thing I want to mention is that with an active alarm system and monitoring company, you’d know INSTANTLY if something is going on in your home, whereas you wouldn’t know for days or even weeks if your home was vandalized without such a system.
Let us know if we can help you make your vacation just a little bit better with added peace of mind!
