Alarm Thieves and Burglars – On the House

Alarm Thieves and Burglars

By on March 25, 2014

Do you have outdoor security lights at your house? If they’re on all night, they could be costing as much as $100 a year, not counting the cost of bulbs. Today, new security gadgets increase the ‘scare-the-crooks’ quotient while lowering the “cost- to-homeowners” quotient.

For example, electronic barking-dog alarms now come in many shapes and sizes, from hard-wired motion-sensor-controlled Doberman guard dogs to yappy little battery-controlled barkers that let you know an intruder might be around. They’re inexpensive and portable, making them great for travel.

Other low-cost alternatives are small battery-operated wedge alarms that sound 110 decibels when a door opens against it. Also, the cost of monitor systems has come way down.
