DIY Home Security
Is home security system worth to pay such big amount? I think it’s a little costly that includes the installation charges & monthly charges etc. isn’t it cheaper to get good locks & precautions?
Do you guys have it at your home?

a thug who REALLY wants in will get in. crew-served automatic weapons, guard dogs, and razor wire can cut the number down some. you can't do that.

the drughead who wants a quick score of something they can hock will usually rattle knobs, or climb into an obscured open window, or pull on car handles at 2 AM to see if anything is unlocked. it takes a second for you to fix any of those issues.

in between is the pro thief who, if they see something blingy in the window, will take the risk and break in. an alarm will scare some of them off. a loud angry-sounding dog will also have that effect.


sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?

Once again another useless spammer pretends to offer advice. And how appropriate that it's on Halloween. Is it also a full moon?
