"Unfortunately, locked doors and windows aren't going to stop all types of intrusion, so having a state-of-the-art home security system is a must if security is a priority," says Tony Litto, with Inspired Technology and Communications. "Using some of today's technology can help prevent a potential break-in. Think of it as a safeguard against typical human error." He says that exterior motion detector lighting is the first line of defense to scare off intruders. If that's not enough, 4K cameras that operate both in the day and night, placed in plain sight is a tried-and-true deterrent. If at this point the intruder has not turned away and they still attempt to break into the home, having window sensors tied to an alarm and a monitoring service will alert you, your neighbors, and the local authorities.
