Now is the time to create a home safety plan to keep the holidays happy and carefree. The end of daylight saving time at the beginning of November brings an earlier nightfall. To keep your home bright and cheerful, use a sensor to switch outdoor lighting on and off. Add more lighting around trees, walkways and near entrances to create a festive and inviting ambience.
For peace of mind indoors, keep your windows and doors locked and secure. If you get into the holiday spirit early and purchase gifts, keep them in a secure area away from windows where they can be seen. If you’re traveling for the holidays, don’t forget to set your alarm so that your home is exactly as you left it when you return.
