What Do Burglars Think About Security Systems?

Burglar Breaking In
According to UNC Charlotte Criminal Justice about 60% of convicted burglars said that they were more likely to target a home without a security system.
I guess this is not surprising but it is comforting to have that theory substantiated directly by the people who you are trying to ward off.
There are many systems to chose from but the options of no contract security systems are slim. The one that I use is Simply Safe. They now have video cameras and it is all wireless and easy to install.
Oh, and cheaper than a lot of other systems.
Other things that burglars said deterred them was lack of escape routes, people nearby, traffic near, and alarm signs that indicated a security system.
Most burglars said when attempting the burglary and discovering an alarm they would abandon the attempt.
