Securing Your Naples or Fort Myers Home While You’re Away for the Summer

It’s that time of year again, many of our beloved snowbirds are heading north to spend their summer with family and friends. If you’re heading home for the summer, you quite likely have a long to-do list in preparation for your trip. With so much to consider, we’ve put together a few tips for securing your home while you’re away for any extended period.

Create the illusion that you’re home

This illusion is the best way to deter potential burglaries. There are many ways to achieve this illusion including:

  • tree-lighting-Old-Florida-home-NaplesMail Delivery. Suspend all mail/package delivery while you’re away. Don’t forget monthly subscriptions and newspapers.
  • Car in the Driveway. Leaving a car in the driveway is a great way to make burglars think twice. Asking a trusted neighbor to park in your driveway will create a more believable affect as the car will come and go at normal hours.
  • Timers. Adding timers to your indoor lights will allow you to set your lamps to come on at various times to give a natural appearance to the evenings and early mornings inside of your home.
  • Maintenance. Hire someone or a service to perform regular exterior maintenance on your home while away. Keeping the lawn maintained and the shrubbery trimmed will keep your home looking neat and occupied.
  • Outdoor Lighting. Outside lighting provides visibility of doors and windows from the street and neighboring homes, deterring would-be burglars from trying to enter through such a visible area.
  • Timers. Outside lights left on during the day can signal you are gone. It is the little things like this that burglars look for. Learn about Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples lighting control automation, it can control your interior and exterior lights. And best of all, it can be turned on and off from a laptop, allowing you to make changes and resets from across the country.

Security system

Having a security system is a great way to deter intruders. If alarms go off when windows are opened or doors are opened, intruders will usually leave immediately. Add security system signage to your lawn or front door to advertise that your home is secure to deter attempted burglaries before they even try.

Attentive neighbor or friend

Ask a trusted neighbor or friend to watch over your place and call you in the event there is an issue. Having your home checked over once a week to be sure issues from summer storms, attempted burglaries or power outages don’t occur is advised to avoid having small issues turn into large expensive disasters.

A house sitter

Hiring a house-sitter is a great way to keep your home occupied while you are gone. With someone inhabiting your home and keeping up with general every day cleaning and maintenance you can rest easy knowing any potential issues that could arise are being handled or communicated to you in real-time.

Increase Autumn Security and Safety on Your Estero Property with Outdoor Lighting

Unsavory characters are less likely to target a home that is well lit because they have fewer places to hide.

Unsavory characters are less likely to target a home that is well lit because they have fewer places to hide.

The Southwest Flordia summer swelter is finally breaking, and we are getting some of those milder temperatures that are the envy of many areas of the country. With nighttime temperatures in the 70s, it’s the perfect time to be in Estero. Though we are now spending more time outdoors than during the summer, you’ve probably already noticed how much more quickly the sun is setting. Days are getting shorter, and nights are already getting longer. With additional hours of darkness, you may be worried about security and safety on your property, and you have every reason to be. Unsavory characters are harder to spot in the dark, and it’s much easier to trip on an out of place tool or toy when your drive is shadowed. But all of these risks can be minimized by simply adding outdoor lighting.

It’s no secret that thieves and vandals avoid properties that are well illuminated and target those that are shadowed. Shadowed homes provide them plenty of places to lurk and not be seen. They can target your home and not be noticed, but outdoor lighting minimizes the shadowy places where those with ill intent can hide, making your property more secure and safer for you and your family, especially you are returning home after dark.

Illuminate your driveways and entryways to help prevent trips and falls.

Estero outdoor lighting also reveals dangers that shadows conceal. Maybe someone left a garden hose stretched across the driveway, or a child or grandchild left toys lying on the porch. If you are bringing a guest home, he/she won’t be aware of that particularly high first step to the front door. Without clear visibility, such trip hazards could cause your otherwise pleasant evening to end in an ER visit, but with Estero outdoor lighting, your pathways, driveway, and entryways can be illuminated, allowing you to see hazards before they create problems.

Most of us stopped being afraid of the dark many years ago. We recognize there are no monsters in the closet or underneath the bed, so nighttime isn’t that scary. However, kids do have some valid concerns. Darkness can conceal is existence of hazards, and because of this, Estero outdoor lighting is an important autumn addition to your home. For the best outdoor lighting in the southwest Florida area, call Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples. With years of experience, our specialists can design, install, and maintain a unique outdoor lighting system for your property, one that will protect you from the things that “go bump in the night” and one that will transform the look and ambiance of your property.

Safety is Beautiful: Outdoor Lighting for Your Southwest Home Security

Eliminating darkness on your property can make it more secure.

Eliminating darkness on your property can make it more secure.

It’s migration season. Birds that wintered over here in Naples are journeying back north. Of course, this happens with people too. Many who spend the winter in our area will be returning to their summer homes in the next few weeks. If you are headed back north soon, you are probably going through your checklist to be sure everything is ready for the months you will be away. Leaving your property for long periods of time can cause apprehension. You want your home to be safe and secure. Don’t forget that outdoor lighting is one of your best security measures, so be sure your system is in top shape before you leave.

 

A well-illuminated property is a crime deterrent. Such a home is at less risk of vandalism or breaking and entering. Unsavory characters prefer to strike homes that are shadowed and dark. In those environments, they are much less likely to be spotted. Not only is outdoor lighting striking and elegant, it can prompt someone with bad intentions to keep moving down the street. So contact Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples to schedule system maintenance. We will ensure your fixtures are in their optimal positions, wiring is reburied, any burned out bulbs are replaced, and your transformer is in good condition. With these routine adjustments, your property will shine. It will attract the attention you want, admiration from neighbors and friends, and not the kind you don’t from vandals and thieves.

 

Lighting Control Automation can give the appearance of being home when you are not.

To further increase the security your outdoor lighting system provides, consider adding Lighting Control Automation (LCA). While it is like a timer in many ways, it does so much more. LCA controls all of the electrical circuits on your property, including your interior lights and TV. Different zones are established, and they can be programmed to turn on and off on a schedule that mimics your normal routines. That way, the exterior of your home and your landscape is illuminated, and your interior lights come on and turn off as if you were home. Knowing it will be less apparent that you are away can give you peace of mind until you return to Naples again in the fall.

 

So if you are migrating soon, give Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Naples a call. Whether it is routine maintenance, installing Lighting Control Automation, or installing a new system, we can help you be sure your property is secure and ready for your departure. You can relax and enjoy your summer.
