Put a Stop to Santa
This December, don’t just let reindeer stomp all over your roof and the big man slide right down your chimney. Turn that burglar alarm on and prepare to keep Santa out. Here are 5 tips to consider as we head into the holidays.
1.A?Don’t Tempt Reindeer
Start your Santa defense by picking up any extra carrots and apples from the lawn. Reindeer find these foods irresistible.
2. Give Santa a Sign
Place security signs on your lawn among the Christmas decorations. We also recommend adding decal stickers to front-facing windows. Any possible intruders will think twice when they see your home is protected by a state-of-the-art security system.
3.A?More Than Just Christmas Lights
Exterior lighting will ensure that Santa can’t hide in the shadows – and neither can a burglar. You can even set the lights on timers and install motion sensors so you’ll know exactly when any elves are sneaking around your yard.
4.A?Door & WindowA?Sensors
Santa doesn’t usually enter through the front door, but installing door and window sensors can be a smart idea just in case. They will keep you aware of anyone attempting to enter your home in the middle of the night. We recommend adding a window sensor to any first-floor entry point. 90% of convicted burglars said they would avoid homes with security systems. Your alarm will serve as a warning that thieves should stay away.
5. Don’t Forget The Chimney
There is no better way to catch Santa in the act. Install a motion detector inside your chimney. You’ll be alerted the moment anyone comes sliding down your smokestack.
