Do You Leave A Light On When You Go Away On Holiday?

Many people ask if they should keep a light on when they go away on holiday. Police and security experts would all say yes, but which lights should you leave on.

Well it makes sence to make it look like you are home, so the simple answer is to set the lights you use every day on a timer so your home looks no different to how it would when your home.

Having your hallway lit with a small lamp may just be a tell-tale sign that your actually away.

We recommend setting two of your main lights to go on and off whilst your away to mimic your activities when your home.  and moving around the house.   This way you can have your downstairs lights go off when you normally head upstairs and program the bedroom to come on.

Having a seven day timer also means you can set them to go off later on weekends or different days of the week.
