Mark and Secure Entries: Deadbolts and Lighting

  • Electronic Deadbolt LockThe holidays are a prime time for burglaries, so update your locks with electronic deadbolt systems. If you install a deadbolt entry set with a numeric keypad, you won't have to worry about leaving keys for your guests.
  • Mark entries with path lights for added peace of mind.

Clear the Air: Air Purifiers

Place air purifiers in guest rooms and common areas to remove allergens (especially pet dander), and prevent the spread of cold and flu germs. Choose an air purifier with a true HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter for maximum effectiveness.
