Besides LOCKIN, here are some additional tips to keep your home safe:

#1 Don’t post on social media that you’re away

We all love to share about our activities on social media, but it’s best to keep a low profile.

If you post on social media that you're on a holiday, this might attract burglars. Remember, bad guys are always lurking on the internet!

Those Instagrammable pictures can wait til you get home, ok!

#2 Leave the light on or play music radio when you’re away

When nobody’s home, turn the lights or radio on to give the impression that there are people in the house.

#3 Tell your neighbours & police to keep an eye on your house

It’s always a good idea to notify someone trustworthy when you’re away so that they can look after your house. They can be your trusted neighbours, friends, close relatives or neighbourhood police.

#4 Close your curtains so valuable items are out of sight

Don’t leave your valuable items such as your TV, computers or cameras exposed, especially where thieves can see them. Seems petty, but many of us are guilty of doing this.

So, make sure to not only lock your windows but also close the curtains.

#5 Install home security system

If you have extra money, install security alarm and CCTV to keep thieves away. Make sure that they work properly and inspect them regularly.

Now that you’re all set, we wish you Gong Xi Fa Cai and have a safe journey!
