11 Things to Never Do When You Leave for Vacation

11) Leave the Door Unlocked

It sounds like a simple thing, who goes away and forgets to lock up? It’s more common than you might think. “Of course, I locked the door, I always lock the door. Did I lock the door?” Not a question you want to be asking yourself as your plane is taking off. Now you can purchase door locks that you can operate from your smart phone. This ensure’s your peace of mind when you leave the house. They aren’t cheap, but definitely a worthwhile investment considering most of what you hold dear is inside. A Wi-Fi enabled security system is also a good way to go. It allows you to see what’s going on around your home while you are away. If you are leaving a key for someone to check on your home, hide it in an uncommon place – not under the door mat!
