In France, nearly 500,000 burglaries are recorded each year. This situation is worrying, especially if you have to leave your house or apartment to go on vacation. This is the perfect time for offenders to operate because they know the home is unoccupied. So to avoid unpleasant surprises, it is essential to take preventive measures in order to anticipate burglaries that could occur in your absence. Generally, some people simulate their presence at home while others ask those around them to watch the house. However, there are several effective tricks that can complement these to permanently discourage thieves. Strengthen your home locks The doors and windows of your home are the main targets of burglars. To commit their offences, dishonest people obviously opt for breaking and entering. To deter them, reinforce the locks of all the doors of your home facing the outside by installing non-pickable locks. For the entrance, for example, replace your lock and its cylinder with a model from the Fichet brand , a brand known for the solidity of its equipment. Also call a locksmith for emergency repairs in the event of a slammed door before you leave. Besides, if this happens to you and you are stuck outside, do not leave your landing or porch. Indeed, if your door closes without being locked and your keys are inside the home, it is not safe, because thieves will use stratagems to open a slammed door and leave with the loot. Contact a locksmith specialist in emergency repairs who will do everything to solve your lock problem in record time. At the same time, this professional will be able to examine the condition of your doors and determine the ideal solution to guarantee the protection of your home and your property. Don't forget to have your windows and shutters checked by the craftsman. If you used to, avoid leaving your key under the flowerpot . Thieves can spot your ride and simply get in while you're away, without having to force it. Finally, if you don't want to lose your keys during your stay, remember to entrust them to someone you trust. The latter may even make unannounced visits to see if everything is in order. Protect your home with an alarm The alarm is a very effective way to protect your home against break-in attempts. You have the choice between classic devices and connected models . These are recommended in case you have to be away for a long time. There are also remote monitoring solutions such as home automation, to benefit from comfort and security . Thus, you can opt for a motorized wifi camera with an alarm. This surveillance device allows you to scan all corners of a room thanks to a horizontal and vertical rotation system. Using the built-in alarm and door opening sensor provided with purchase, this device will deter any intruder attempting to break into your home. Use a safe If you have valuable items that you want to preserve, using a safe hidden behind a piece of furniture or a painting is also an effective tip. This alternative comes in addition to the installation of an alarm system. In the absence of a safe, it is also possible to hide your valuables in ventilation systems, at the level of wall decorations or in your children's rooms. These unusual places turn out to be ideal hiding places to keep your valuables.
