Here’s a great story about a burglar who was a professional revealing some of his secrets. He shared with authorities that a security system NEVER stopped him. He wasn’t afraid of them at all because he could get in and out of a house before the police arrived.

He went on to say that there were only two things that really made him think twice about burglarizing a home. One was Security Cameras around the home. If he saw security surveillance cameras outside the home he would think twice about going in. Burglars may not be the sharpest knives in the drawer but they’re not dumb either. They don’t want to get caught and chances are if he does burglarize a house and there’s video of it, the police have a 50% better chance of catching the bad guy.
The second thing that would stop him was a guard dog. A pit bull or Doberman would definitely change his mind about burglarizing a house.
