The holiday season in New Orleans is a magical time, filled with celebrations, family gatherings, and festive decorations. But it’s also a time when home security becomes more crucial than ever. At ABC Fire & Burglar Alarm, we’re committed to helping you enjoy a safe and worry-free holiday season. Here are our top holiday security tips to protect your home and loved ones.

1. Be Smart About Holiday Lighting

  • Use Timers: Automated timers for lights can create the illusion that someone is home, deterring potential burglars.
  • Check for Safety: Ensure all lights are in good condition and turn them off when you’re not home or asleep to prevent fire hazards.

2. Protect Your Deliveries

  • Track Packages: Use tracking options to know when your packages are arriving.
  • Secure Delivery Options: Consider a secure parcel drop box or arrange for deliveries when someone is home.

3. Travel Wisely

  • Alert ABC Fire & Burglar Alarm: Let us know if you’ll be away, so we can keep an extra eye on your property.
  • Social Media Savvy: Avoid advertising your absence on social media, as it can be an open invitation to burglars.

4. Home Automation for Added Security

  • Smart Locks and Alarms: Utilize smart home technology to monitor and control your home remotely.
  • Security Cameras: Consider installing security cameras that you can access from your phone, providing real-time surveillance.

5. Embrace Community Vigilance

  • Neighborhood Watch: Work with your neighbors to keep an eye on each other’s homes.
  • Report Suspicious Activity: Encourage prompt reporting of any unusual activity in the area.

6. Secure Decorations and Gifts

  • Hide Gifts: Keep gifts away from windows to avoid tempting potential thieves.
  • Secure Outdoor Decor: Make sure outdoor decorations are firmly secured to prevent theft and damage.

7. Regular Maintenance Checks
