DIY Security Perception

How does DIY “Security Perception”  enhance your security plan? 

    • What is security perception? Think “Perception is Reality” in the eyes of a prospective burglar. According to the FBI most residential burglaries are committed by young juveniles who usually live near by, probably supporting a drug habit. They are looking for a place they can get in and out of in a hurry, with a minimum of noise and a limited possibility of being detected.

    • A security yard sign for a security system or CCTV system, if you actually have a system or not, screams try an easier target. The yard sign, by itself will make most prospective thieves think “do they really have an alarm or camera system”, if you also have a realistic looking faux CCTV camera hung high on a wall, they will move on.
