How To Avoid Burglars’ Tricks This Halloween
It’s about that time of the year again when strangers roam from house to house in search of free loot. Although most are seeking out the sugary kind of treats, some have intentions to trick you out of your valuables. Be prepared this frightful season—read on to find out how to avoid burglars’ tricks this Halloween.
Secure Your Corridors
What better day to be a burglar than Halloween? It’s a night of hidden identities and general chaos in the streets. With all these distractions going on, sneaking into a stranger’s home to make off with valuables can be almost too easy.
It may be traditional for trick-or-treaters to knock on your front door, which is why burglars will be looking at other means of entry. Be sure to keep all of your doors and windows locked. For extra security, you can view a live stream of your home’s exterior with an inTouch system from SEi.
Bump in the Night
After the festivities have died down and you’re off to bed, a few stragglers may still be wandering the streets. With a home security system, you won’t have to worry about bumps in the night, such as locks being picked in silence. If someone enters your home, the alarm will be triggered and the 24/7 UL-listed Monitoring Center will contact you and the proper authorities immediately.
