The house we were in today has bi-fold doors and they open in just a few seconds with a jemmy. At hat point, the motion detector will pick them up and the sounders come on, at the same time, the owners phone notifies them and they have also been filmed coming in. The worst part about burgling these elderly people is fear of it happening again.
Our police station is closed and the police rarely respond within 30 minutes. They did turn up a few hours after it was reported and took a few details so at least it is on record.
Bolts and locks will slow it down for certain on a garage and my bikes are all chained to each other.
We have quite a bad drug problem here and with no good employment, some people just break in for the cash and easily sold items. I have had one attempted entry but they ran as soon as they touched the side door as it is protected by a microwave energy unit. These are far superior to PIR detectors. Living in areas where street lights are turned off, car thefts are also common. They just want anything you leave in the car. This is the future.
