Your bags are packed, your tickets have been printed off, your passport is alongside them and you are fully ready to go travelling. You can jet away and escape from reality for the duration of your getaway, but what about the safety of your home whilst you are away? Looking after your home while travelling is easy with the following tips…
There are lots of gadgets available on the market which can be used whilst you are away to ensure it looks like someone is in your property. Light switch timers are a fantastic idea, allowing lamps to turn on and off at the pre-set time each day. Doorbells have evolved significantly over the years, with Ring offering doorbells that come complete with video capability and two way microphones, allowing you to speak to the caller through the app, wherever you are in the world.
Investing in a home alarm system that sets as soon as you leave your property will give you total reassurance. However you can go the extra mile by installing a home CCTV system that enables you to keep an eye on your property via an app whilst away. Sim’s Life has highlighted some fantastic ideas on how to secure your home whilst you are away.
It’s hard to keep up with the maintenance of your home whilst away, especially when lawns can easily become overgrown and look unkempt. In this case, if you plan on taking several months out for travelling, installing fake grass maybe an option as zero maintenance is required. Give someone you trust a spare key in order for them to keep regular checks on your home and tidy away post from your front door.
Ask someone you trust implicitly to move into your home and look after it whilst you are away. This is especially handy if you have pets, as they can remain in your home and be looked after whilst you are away without any added stress of being in kennels.
