Big Rockpile, that is how we have treated our ranch house, which has no permanent residents and usually might be driven by twice a week. Leave the doors unlocked - no more kicked in door jamb trim / door hardware to be replaced. Our break ins are done by illegal aliens traveling up, looking for work. They are searching for valuables - they are looking for food / water / matches, simples needs. They don't trash the place at all, but have left the refrigerator door ajar and the exterior doors open.

Patterning your habits will occur - nearly everyone knows which cars belong where. When you move to country, maintain good relations with neighbors if possible - they will watch your place if you do the same for them.
