Studies show security signs can deter intrusions in Tallahassee
Numerous studies say security signs are effective when looking at ways to deter an intrusion. The idea is that the burglar will see the display and instantly make the decision that your property isn't worth the hassle. After all, why stress over cameras and sensors when a burglar can move onto a less protected house in another neighborhood?
However, the same studies note that signage ranks fairly low as a deterrent to crime. A well-placed sign mainly puts off amateur thieves, but seasoned crooks might want to see how much security is really defending your home prior to looking the other way. Other devices, like security cameras, are more effective at thwarting prospective invaders.
