Secure Your Home for Vacation

Our homes are both an asset and a form of protection for our other assets.  They have both a real (property) and a personal (nostalgic) value.  Securing our homes is often more difficult than it should be, especially when we go on vacation!  We want to make sure that our house can be converted into a fortress for our belongings, a safe haven for any family members staying behind, and a refuge for us to return to.  To do this, we need to understand security, and all of the controls that we can use to secure our home.  This guide aims to be that course of action in the form of advice and a checklist.
