Thinking of getting the family out of the house for the long weekend?
Below is a suggested check list to secure your home while you are away:

  • Ensure that your pets are cared for and consider getting a house sitter
  • Turn off your geyser and any taps leading to your washing machine and dish washer
  • Cut back any bushes around your windows and doors making it less easier for burglars to hide
  • Empty out the trash and do the dishes
  • Set automatic timers for lights and radio to mimic your normal home routine
