The holidays are known for time spent with the family. Whether you are out of town or in your home for the holidays you will want to make sure you are taking the proper precautions when it comes to keeping your home safe. AMP Security Company can help you in protecting your home whether you are in it or on the road. Below are some home safety tips you need to follow in order to keep your holidays safe and joyful.


Prepare for your Departure

If you are going to be traveling during the holiday season you will want to make sure you are taking the necessary precautions in preparing your home for your absence. Make sure all your windows and doors are securely locked. If possible, put your lights on a timer to make it seem like someone is home. Have a trusted friend or neighbor keep an eye on your house and collect any packages or mail that may arrive while you are away. A home security system provided by AMP Security Company can protect all of your valuables while you are away with 24/7 monitoring of your home.


Holiday Decorations

Nothing is worse than having an unexpected fire due to the improper use of your holiday decorations. Make sure you use your outlets correctly when you are plugging in those Christmas lights. Keep any flammable objects away from your fireplace, furnace, or space heater. Make sure your tree is securely placed and in an area that is far enough away from causing any damage if it were to fall.



As the gifts pile up under the tree you will want to make sure you are keeping them away from the public eye. Prying eyes can easily see the gifts you have been accruing in the past few weeks. When throwing out any boxes that your gifts may have come in, make sure you are doing so immediately and within the confines of a trash bin. You don’t want a potential burglar to see that you just received a new TV or Gaming System.
