Make your house look lived in. Leave curtains and blinds as normal for daylight hours. Get Coastcom Security to put the bins out and a neighbour to randomly open and close the front gate and park a vehicle in the drive.
Use simple time switches to turn lamps and radios on and off. Use lamps with low energy/low heat globes. Do not overload power sockets, and make sure that all other appliances are turned off at the wall.
Arrange for a local gardener/handyman service to keep your lawn and nature strip mowed and do any general garden maintenance.
A Coastcom Security monitored alarm system gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your property is being guarded 24 hours/365 days a year. As your local home security experts, Coastcom Security can provide a world class protection package tailored to your needs.
Arrange for Australia Post to hold your mail and ask a friend or neighbour to remove local papers and letter box drops.
Let your neighbours know when you are away so that they can keep an eye on your property ensuring they are aware of any precautions you have taken to prevent false alarms.
