Lock your garage
It might sound weird, but security experts recommend packing for a trip, inside the garage, to avoid prying eyes. In addition, they also advise unpacking expensive purchases like electronics and furnishings inside the garage, so that no one knows what you’ve recently purchased. One other thing: keep the garage door locked at all times, even when you’re at home.
Speaking of locking things up, here are 7 Items You’ll Regret Locking Away in a Safe Deposit Box.
Use random light timers
Another way to ward off potential intruders is to put timers on the indoor lights and sunset/sunrise timers on the outdoor ones. To prevent thieves from identifying a pattern, the timers have to be completely random.
This doesn’t mean you have to leave the lights on night and day, because this can also be seen as a sign that you’re not at home. Therefore, a good idea would be to set motion-activated lights in the backyard or near the garage to stop burglars from targeting your home.
