So for instance you should also check whether the system is operating or functioning well for it to detect fire. While for those with none like me, we should inform our neighbors that we are taking a vacation trip for them to look after. (Literally look after in the sense of just for any emergency situation)
5. Check if all water source are properly secured for leakage
Furthermore, you must secure all faucets or other water source in your house to avoid leakage and worse minor floods. Once you forget to close all water sources and leakage starts to leak, your property might get wet and broke.

Without a well-designed security system, it would cause you property loss in the means of stealing. If you can, installing security camera would also help for you to guard your own property even your away. But I guess firstly assure a good relationship to your neighbors for them to watch over temporarily.
