Which sign should I use Beware of Dog or Alarm system sign?


So a friend of mine purchase a “beware of dog “sign for his home in order to ward off any potential prowlers so he has taken in inexpensive approach to protecting his home. I disagree when it comes to your home, apartment or home network you should invest in some type of alarm system or CCTV system. However when things are hard as first time home buyer you may have to save some money before you can make a major investment in protecting your home so the question is what should you invest in first a sign which states “beware of dog” or a sign which states you have a very expensive alarm system in place.

So there is an argument to be made for having a sign with an alarm system. No burglar likes noise and an alarm system does make noise and contact the police. When a break in occurs if they are not familiar with the home they need time to enter find the master bedroom to take whatever valuables are in the home. Once the alarm is activated the clock starts to tick until local law enforcement can arrive. So a sign from an alarm company is a good deterrent.

However if I was going to use a deterrent sign it would be a “Beware of Dog” sign. This is the one that no burglar would like to test for many reasons. First, dogs are loud they will bark until they leave the area in most cases a burglar would just be by the window or by the door when a dog starts to bark so this is much better than an alarm system. Lastly a dog is unpredictable in their response to a stranger in the home and no burglar wants to find out so chances are they will skip your home.

This is more of an opinion piece the most important thing is you find a way to protect your home. Your home should be a place of peace and security. You want to take the appropriate measure to protect your home.

I hope this was helpful as always please leave a comment
