Spring Break Safety Tips
With Spring Break right around the corner, many people are excited to get away and enjoy their vacation. But before you go, it's important to consider one more thing: home security.
When you’re away from home on vacation, your house is vulnerable to porch pirates or, even worse – burglars. Consider installing a smart home security system to provide an added layer of protection for your property and help deter unauthorized people.

1. Yard Signs and Window Stickers
Let potential burglars know that your house is not going to be an easy target. With a Frontpoint security system, you’re getting top-rated, 24/7 professional monitoring. Yard signs and window stickers are your first line of defense, especially when you’re away for Spring Break. When a criminal is choosing a house to break into, they're less likely to break into the one that they know is protected by home security.
2. Security Cameras
Keep an eye on things going on inside and outside of your home at all times. Whether you’re traveling across the country to Europe or just visiting your local beach town, you’ll be able to check your Frontpoint app for your camera feed.

3. Security Sensors
When away for Spring Break, make sure your home has door and window sensors and motion sensors If you add glass break sensors as well, this will eliminate any possibility that a burglar could enter your home undetected by breaking a window in an area where you don't have motion sensors. When armed, these sensors will trigger your alarm system and notified not only you but your team of 24/7 monitoring professionals. Even if you're not home, Frontpoint has your back.
4. Wireless Light Control
