How To Look After Your Home, Even When You're Not There ♥

We prepare and prepare, but sometimes we forget one little thing that we didn’t do before leaving the house. And from that point on, while on your holidays and travels, that’s the only thing you can think about. But why does it have to be this way? You don’t need to worry about your home if you put in place some checks and balances, to manage your home affairs.


Watch your home anytime
Modern home security cameras are fantastic because you can link up with a cloud system. All your footage is stored on the cloud and you don’t need to store files worth many gigabytes on your hard drive. However, since you also manage your camera via an internet connection, you can view your home anytime and from anywhere. The V-Home from Vodafone is a small camera that you can place anywhere around the home. The best place to watch who comes and goes from your home is from the living window. The V-Home is a smart camera with multipurpose sensors. It can discern from a person and a fox. If it detects something harmful like a burglar, it will sound a siren. You will instantly be updated with what’s going on via SMS and email.

A friendly neighbour 
Not everyone gets along with their neighbours, but it's in your best interests to do so. One day you may need their help to look after your home while you’re away. However, you don’t want to make it seem as if you’re giving your neighbour full responsibility and or asking them to do chores. Just ask them kindly, to look around your home once in a while. Take packages on your behalf instead of having them left on the porch. If someone comes knocking on your door, ask them to intervene and ask who the person is and why they need to see you. Every now and again, your neighbor should peer through the windows to see if all is well inside your house.

Receiving your mail
A big fat wad of uncollected mail, trapped in your mailbox or letterbox is a dead giveaway to any would-be burglar. Rather than making it easy for them, utilize which can receive all your real-world mail. This virtual address, will not only receive your mail but open up it, scan it and send it directly to your email, at your wishes. They will dispose of the mail if you don’t need it. They have an in-house team that handles all mail, so your sensitive details will not be given to a third party.

A free stay
If you’re really worried about the safety of your home, why not let someone you trust, live in it while you’re gone? Give the keys to a close friend or family member, and allow them to use it as their home, just for the duration of your holiday. Crooks will back off from homes they see someone actively living in, around the holiday season. Let all your worries subside by using these tips to protect your home while you’re away. A CCTV camera which you can tune into anywhere, anytime is a great tool to have.
