The majority of home burglaries happen when nobody is at home. Criminals, in general, are interested in your belongings, not in causing you personal harm. They know they stand a better chance of not being caught that way, too. So, it stands to reason that your vacation home provides even more opportunity than your permanent home if you are only there on an occasional weekend or a week here and there.
You may not have as many belongings at your vacation home – no high-end jewelry, fewer electronics, no cash lying around, and so forth. However, if you have roll-up shutters on your vacation home, you are less likely to end up with a vandalized home or a squatter using your utilities. Many people think of roll-up shutters in terms of protecting their property from the elements, but they are also quite good at deterring a would-be burglar or other unsavory individual. With motorized roll-up shutters, you’ll just need moments to close up and secure your home and open it again when you return.
If you are active on social media and share about your vacations, you might also want to consider having roll-up shutters for your home so when you are at your vacation home, you won’t have your permanent home broken into. Think it won’t happen because you only share with friends? Guess again, as being robbed by someone you know happens more often than you might think.
