Don't advertize you're gone in email, facebook, twitter or any of the other social media, period.
I also turn my propane off at the tank. If you have natural gas it would be wise to turn it off at the meter. I live in earthquake country. No need for your house filling up with gas and the light timer possibly igniting it.
