A house or apartment left empty while its owners are traveling is a tempting target for criminals.

It is not a good idea to keep lights on at home throughout the entire vacation in an effort to make it look like someone is in the house. It is not ‘green behavior’. Plus, house lights blazing throughout the night might look a bit odd, CNN reported.

Instead, purchasing a light switch timer that can turn the lights on and off automatically according to a programmed schedule can be helpful; therefore criminals will notice lights flipping on and off, and will probably assume someone is doing the flipping.
