Now that the COVID19 restrictions are lifting, many of us are booking holidays and jetting off to beautiful locations. Yet, due to the excitement of going away, many people forget about the important details that may not be at the forefront of their mind, like home protection.
However, thanks to our digital world, there are now a plethora of devices and gadgets available to help protect your home from burglars while you’re going away on a relaxing holiday.
But, which ones are the most important? In this blog, we run through some essential home protection measures that you should consider before going on your well-deserved break.
One of the most popular security measures is video doorbells. For those that don’t know, a video doorbell, as their name suggests, is essentially a video camera incorporated into your standard doorbell. It connects to your home WIFI network and notifies the homeowner’s smartphone when their doorbell is rung, and detects any motion outside of their front door.
There is no wonder why these are so popular, as they provide safety and convenience for the homeowner. If this is something you are considering, we definitely recommend implementing one.

A smart door lock is a device that is typically operated through a smartphone or app by using WIFI or bluetooth, making it a keyless lock. Although they are on the pricier side, they are a good investment if you are concerned about the trustworthiness of keys or don’t trust yourself with said keys - especially when you are trying to unwind on a beach somewhere.
Alternatively, here at Delta Home Protection, we offer a Keyholding and Alarm Response service so we can take care of them, whilst answering any potential intruder alarm activations - attending yourself can be dangerous.

Using smart lights or timed lights is a great way to make your home seem occupied when you are away. You can control them with an app on your smartphone, eliminating the need for traditional wall switches, which evidently can scare off any potential intruders, not to mention saving on electricity!
Although this does appear to make your home look like someone is in it, if a burglar is watching your home intently, they may clock onto this handy service.
To take extra measures, utilise a security officer to protect your most personal assets when on holiday, a perfect all-around solution. They will be monitoring your home in the flesh, to make sure there is no suspicious behaviour taking place.

The final service we are covering is professional security patrols. Suppose you feel like a security officer may be overkill. Why not invest in a practical and cost-effective alternative to a full team security presence in and around your home.
