Studies show security signs can deter intrusions in Columbia
Numerous studies confirm that security signs work when looking at ways to deter an intrusion. The logical explanation is that the prowler will notice the display and swiftly decide that your property isn't worth the hassle. After all, why stress over cameras and alarms when a thief can hit a more vulnerable house in another neighborhood?
However, the same studies note that a security sign ranks fairly low as a burglary deterrent. A well-placed sign mainly dissuades novices, but professional criminals may want to see the level of security that is actually defending your property before deciding on a different target. Other equipment, like security cameras, are more effective at preventing an intrusion.
