Love our home
Home is where our heart is J that’s show how precious is our home. Of course, home is where our loved ones and our loved things reside. All of these need protection all the time, but we are not going to be IN the house for 24 hours every 365 days in a year. Sometimes, we need to leave our home unattended. But if you are not at home most of the time, probably it is the high time you move to a hotel room ;p
Thus, let me share with you 5 possible ways for you to protect your home while you are away.
Guarded and Gated. Yes, it is quite a luxury to have your own security guard in front of your main entrance. But if you live in a community that have common security services, you will need to pay some fee to acquire those services specifically for your home. However, I do not think this fee is regulated so you might be paying too much for too little services. The possibility is there.
This might be a bigger investment than number 1 but it is very good option if you have the modal. You just need to ensure that you get the best product and services. We do not want blurred images from the CCTV, it is not helpful at all. As in one of the episodes of NCIS Season 8 (if I am not mistaken), they get double images from the CCTV tape as the tape was overwritten for several times , yeah…cost cutting that cut the purpose of the CCTV. One more thing, if you already have CCTV installed at your home, please just ignore the images of ‘not people’ captured during odd hours in your CCTV recording
3. Magical Illusion
You have to create an impression that your home is occupied while you are away. This can be achieved if you use timer to switch on your lamp (during the night) and switch off the lamp (during the day). But please do not leave your clothes hang out for days. This is the easiest way outsiders can know the home owner is away. However, if you do know something (mechanism or robot) that could hang out the clothes and take it away appropriately, just let me know yeah….. I prefer the one that can fold the clothes too ;P
4. Lock it Away
Please purchase a more secure padlock as usually the less secure (most probably the cheapest one) padlock can be hacked very easily. There is a little hole under the padlock that if you poke inside it, you could open the padlock without using any keys.
