I’ve had two attempted break ins and at odd times of the day. The first was at 5:30 in the morning. My wife was already up getting ready for work and our bulldog went nuts downstairs. By the time I got down there 1911 in hand the back door was open but they were gone scared off by our dog. After that I got alarms for all the doors in the house (simple wedge alarms) and two weeks later my wife called me at work (which is one block away from were I live) telling me that the alarm in the garage was going off. I was home in about a minute and the alarm scared them off. This time I contracted with a security company and the stickers and yard signs I guess have been enough that whoever it was has not been back.
