Equip themselves with video surveillance systems
Equipping the home with a video surveillance system is essential to prevent the entry of burglars. However, a complete video surveillance system can be very expensive: among the cheapest and most effective solutions is certainly the use of video cameras to be placed inside the home, so that you can view images of your home in real time on your smartphone.

Loading luggage away from prying eyes
If you are leaving by car, it is useful to load all your luggage in covered places such as garages: that way, if some prowler wanders around the house and is studying your movements, he will not notice your imminent departure.

Avoid clues that reveal absence from home
As far as possible, you should leave clues to the effect that there are people in the house, such as emptying the mailbox, not keeping the doormat up or not leaving the grass in the garden untended. Obviously, in this case you should enlist the support of neighbours or trusted people who can perform these routine actions for you.

Taking out home insurance
Protecting yourself with insurance allows you to start off more peacefully in the event of theft in your home, while also limiting the economic and emotional impact of breakdowns or damage to the structure. Some policies also provide for the possibility of sending experts into the home in the event of an emergency.

Limit the use of social
It sounds strange, but social networks can also help criminals. Posting too many photos or too many videos from holiday spots and making this content available to everyone is a risk: criminals could also access your social networks, observing your movements and devising a plan to break into your home based on the information gathered online.
