You can't really be too careful these days nor can you be lax on guarding your home against robbers and thieves. One my relatives has been robbed of valuables like laptop, video camera, digital cameras and cell phones one night. An unidentified person sneaked inside their house and searched their cabinets for valuables. These are professionals thieves because they managed to come in and get out of the house without waking even a single person in that house.
The next day, they
were surprised to see the cabinet doors and drawers opened. It also
looked like somebody went through them. They found out later that most
of their valuable things are missing.
They should have installed a
driveway alarm or a wireless driveway alarm. The driveway alarms
nowadays work even in a much longer range. It will deter criminals
because it detects human or vehicle motion near any security-sensitive
location like driveways, business entrances, garages, and barns. It will
also report and alert you when it's happening.
When I buy my own
house, I will sure put a driveway alarm. I don't want to give these
criminals easy access to my house. I will also get a wireless doorbell,
it will make any house look elegant.
