The best way to scare off an intruder is with a prominent security sign in your front yard. While you will still want a security system if an unwanted individual does decide to make an entrance, the security sign is really your first line of defense. This sign serves as a symbol to remind a potential intruder of the consequences they face if they do decide to enter your property. It also tells them that it will be virtually impossible to enter your home and make a clean getaway. Alarm monitoring is extremely reliable. If an intruder enters your monitored home, the police will soon be on their way.
Intruders and burglars are not stupid. Sure, what they do is stupid, but they at least have a plan when conducting their actions. These individuals pick, choose and target homes that they feel they can best get away with robbing. These are the homes without alarm monitoring service. If an intruder sees an alarm monitoring sign in the yard, then it is fair to assume that indeed have monitoring service. Most security companies provide free signs for monitored customers. The intruder will assume the sign was included with the monitoring service, and they will ignore the sign.
When an intruder chooses a home to enter, they will usually choose a home that looks ill-prepared for a robbery. This is the home without a posted monitoring sign. It might also be the home with the unkempt yard where it looks like the owner does not keep up with maintenance. If the homeowner doesn't care to keep up with the yard, then it's probable that they wouldn't care to install a security system either. The best way to scare off an intruder is to put a prominent monitoring sign in your yard, get active monitoring service and take care of your home.
You might think that just having alarm monitoring service is enough and that it isn't necessarily important to "scare off" intruders with yard signs or window stickers. This is not true.

They might destroy priceless belongings that you cannot replace. Yes, having monitoring service is very important. But the best base scenario is to prevent an intruder from entering your home in the first place.
