Studies show security signs are able to deter intrusions in Charleston
Many studies confirm that security signs are a good idea when attempting to deter an intrusion. The idea is that the thief will notice the display and quickly determine that your residence isn't worth the hassle. Ultimately, why stress over surveillance systems and alarms when they can pivot to a less protected home down the road?
However, the same research indicates that a visible display isn’t the strongest deterrent to crime. A smartly positioned sign mainly puts off novices, but veteran thieves will want to see the extent of security that is really defending your property prior to looking the other way. Other equipment, like cameras, do a much better job keeping an intruder away.
