The ‘Tip of the Week’- is on interior lighting. It is important that where a house is vacant that an impression is generated to would-be intruders that it is in fact occupied. This can be achieved by using plug in timers connected to table lamps or other lights, a radio or music centre to create the normal sounds in the house.
