Implement the force field. As far as literally getting under a burglar’s skin, the force field device is about as far as you can legally go in a home security system. Utilizing the same techniques in practice in the spy industry, the device sends out waves which cause confusion and a feeling of nausea in someone approaching your home. While it will not affect every person in the same way, it is certain to cause a feeling of distress – quite opposite from the boldness necessary to break into a home.
If your alarm goes off when there is no emergency, enter the cancellation code into the keypad immediately, and then call your burglar alarm service to confirm.
Watch your neighborhood and know what’s going on. After I was robbed twice in the same year I began watching who was coming and going from my neighborhood, who they were with, and what times. If you notice anything out of the ordinary like strangers talking on pay phones or walking though neighborhoods alert the authorities only when necessary, and keep your eye on them. If you notice persons taking photographs or recording other data let your neighbors know. Also watch out for “parkers” (people that sit in cars and watch what is going on or spy on people), it may be a sign that something is up. We don’t live in on the set of a hit TV cop show so don’t go crazy patrolling the neighborhood and making something out of nothing.
