If you travel for a living, you need to make sure that your home is protected against burglary. You might not realize this, but burglars often canvass neighborhoods looking for homes that are empty. If you're not home very often, your home might become an easy target. The first thing you need to do is install a home security system. A security system will make your home less appealing to burglars, especially if you place security stickers and placards around your property.
