There is no substitute for having a neighbor on your team, keeping an eye on things. They can sometimes help beyond imagination.

Put steel doors and wrought iron gates on all entry points, these are great for vacant and occupied security. Board up all windows with 3/4" plywood, 2x4s and thru bolts. Winterize the property. Remove the furnace and water heater.
I use an alarm company that installs units and moves them from address to address when vacancies occur. If you get a break in you will be notified and the police will be called. Usually they will not have time to steal all of the copper, cabinets, toilets and they will bug out.

When I use to work in the alarm installation business posting a sign stating a alarm system is on the premises can certainly help. Nothing is 100%.
Turning on lights can certainly help as well. However, if the place is being â€œcasedâ€ and the lights go on and off at the same time it may obvious no one is home.
