Tips to keep your home and family protected this Halloween

Happy Halloween
If you’re out and about this Halloween attending one of the many fun Halloween events in the Hartford area make sure you’re following these tips to keep your home and your family protected from scary witches and mischievous goblins.

  • Don’t post your Halloween plans on Facebook, Twitter, etc. – even if you’re planning on staying home. Twitter posts are for everyone to see (unless you set your tweets to be protected). No need for the world to know where exactly you are and what you are planning. It makes it really easy for burglars to get exact details about your whereabouts and to help themselves to your belongings while you are out.
  • Motion sensor lights are great to have. Not only do they help the trick-or-treaters find their way safely to your front door, they also help keep pranksters away.
  • If you are leaving the house to go to a halloween party or an event, and you have a home security system, make sure you activate it.
  • Keep pets inside. Many pets get frightened by unexpected noises and lots of people walking around and might run off.
