Tips

Before you leave on vacation:
Make sure Houston Home Security has your vacation plans on file as well as the names of those people with access to your home while you are away. Call 832-427-1502, email us at , or mail us a brief letter.

  • Get a trusted friend or relative to house sit, or make sure your neighbors know your plans.

  • Have a neighbor pick up your newspapers and mail for you, or stop service during the time you are away.

  • Leave a car parked in the driveway, or ask a neighbor to park there.

  • Use timers to turn lights on and off at certain times, altering lighting patterns.

  • Arrange to have your lawn mowed.

  • Replace any burned-out lights in your yard. Consider upgrading outdoor light fixtures with devices that have built-in motion detectors, which turn on the lights whenever anyone walks past.

  • An unoccupied home--or one that appears to be unoccupied--is an appealing target to a burglar. You can alleviate some worries and make your time away from home more enjoyable if you take a few moments to safeguard your home.

Commercial Safety Tips:

  • Check batteries in smoke detectors and flashlights on January 1st.

  • Always ask for identification: verify service personnel; fake uniforms are easy to rent or steal.

  • Keep your valuables and important papers in a home safe.

  • 65% of nonresidential burglaries occur during the nighttime. Here are a few of the things Houston Home Security can help you do to safeguard your business when you're not there:

  • Install window locks that cannot be reached and unlocked after breaking the glass.

  • Install motion detectors to sense movement inside the building.

  • Install entry protecting alarms to detect the breaking of windows and the opening of doors.

  • Install point protectors (such as pressure-switch mats) to detect when someone enters a
    restricted area, such as by a cash register.

  • Install a deadbolt lock/latch in each exterior door.

Making the switch to Houston Home Security
Most systems are compatible with Houston Home Security. If you'd like to switch, we'll send a qualified technician to your home or business to take care of you. It's that easy.
