Today, the lifestyle of having multiple residences, or simply travelling frequently for business or pleasure is becoming increasingly common. Even if travelling to hotels on the company time, home may have to be wherever you hang your hat, even if you’re heart is not in it, if only for a while. While on the road, most people are tired and worn out, and not thinking about home security at their own home, let alone making their temporary home a safe haven. It’s relatively easy to make your temporary home a fortress with just a few easy measure like those found below for top, temporary home security!

The door alarm door jamb. This simple device looks exactly like a door jamb, but works like a door alarm. It can be shockingly easy to open up a hotel room door by simply inserting a metal rod under the door in the space between the heavy door and the floor. Anyone who has seen this done online will surely be worried and ready to take an extra measure of protection. This can be especially important for those travelling alone who are likely to be tired and in a deep sleep. The way this door jamb works is that it is touch sensitive, so that if it is moved or if the door is opened into it a loud alarm sounds alerting you of the criminal’s presence, and alerting the criminal that he’s been caught.

Security Safes. Today most hotel rooms come with a safe, but most people don’t bother using it. They are afraid they will forget their belongings or that it’s not actually secure. It is, however, easier to use a security safe in the moment than notice your missing belongings like credit cards and jewelry later. If worried that the room safes aren’t safe enough, a great alternative can be to travel with a small travel safe. Many travel safes can come in the appearance of a can of shaving cream or other trick exterior, making it impossible to detect that your belongings are inside.

Luggage Locks. While going through air security it’s likely you’ll lose your lock, but when travelling on the ground it’s always a good idea to have your luggage securely closed and locked. Even when lying around the hotel room it can be victim to revision by hotel employees. Remember that any hotel personnel could potentially have access to your room, so ask yourself if you would really trust all of them with your valuable belongings.

Wi-Fi Care. A new kind of home security threat that many people forget to worry about is Wi-Fi safety. When at a hotel with an open internet connection, anyone could be watching as you enter important data like bank account and credit card information. Stay safe by limiting the amount of personal information and transactions completed on the hotel’s open Wi-Fi connection.
