They can also tell if a person using timer if their lights are coming about the same time every day. Movement activated lights give the impression that there are people roaming around a home. A wise burglar will not take the risk of trying to find out if someone is home or not.
Small Dog Security
Many robbers stated that big dogs do not bother them. However, the small dogs do help to prevent robberies. The reason being is once they sense an intruder’s presence they will continuously bark until they wake someone in the household up. For the most part, thieves just avoid them all together.
Closed circuit television cameras or CCTV cameras are good for deterring robbers because they can record an intruder’s image and store it to a hard drive far away from the person’s home. Thieves can take the storage data, discs or tapes from regular cameras or video equipment.
Burglar alarms still remain an effective deterrent against criminals. People should install them and have them set up to work with a WIFI network. This way they can monitor their property from their mobile devices. Many home invaders avoid alarms because they can be too much of a hassle to deal with.
Homeowners and renters can also do simple things like put deadbolts on their doors and bolts on their windows to keep burglars from coming into these primary entry points. People with garages should always keep them close as well since many thieves enter into a person’s home through this area.
