There are some burglars who can get through just about any security system. Crime movies aside, thieves have the opportunity to analyze security systems and find their weaknesses. Security providers have to consider a property's potential weaknesses and find a way to keep criminals out. Burglars have the advantage in this situation. However, you can fight back by having a security system that gives you early identification of a threat and layered protection that slows entry.
The first thing you can do is identify threats quickly. Sensors, surveillance cameras and other property monitoring devices can go a long way toward discovering a burglar and alerting authorities. However, that is not enough. You also have to make sure you can slow down the thief to such an extent that authorities can arrive at your property. This is where layered protection comes into play.
It isn't enough to just have a good lock on your front door. If you have high fences that can't be climbed, make sure you have a quality gate. You should also have good locks on windows, put valuables in a safe and keep doors going into rooms where valuables are stored locked when you are out of the house.
A good locksmith can help you get the layered protection you need without sacrificing convenience and disrupting your life too much.
