Alarm, Cameras and motion-activated Lights will help keep burglars away, because burglars are apparently using new excuses when the police stop them for casing neighborhoods while looking for a "Weak" home; one that's vulnerable... Burglars are ALWAYS looking for the easier score than the harder one, so residents must ALWAYS be prepared to play it safe by tightening up their home, making it MORE secure.
