Burglar Alarms

If a burglar knows you are home, he probably won't enter your home.  One of the best ways to scare away a burglar is with noise.  If you can't afford a home security system, keep your car keys near you.  If you hear something that sounds like someone is prowling around your home, set off your car alarm and call the police.
