  • An oft-cited theory of security says that the more popular a security solution is, the more it will be targeted.

    Another oft-cited theory--backed up by anecdotal reports--is that when thieves see the security signs (or hear the clever recording of barking dogs), they'll move to the next house.

    • Right, there's a difference between the type of target your professional cat burgler (Robble robble . . . wait, that's the Hamburgler) is going to go after and the one the boored teenager ne'er-do-well is going to hit. The professional black hat's going to have more perserverence, or see the stronger system as a challenge. The scriptkitty will jiggle the handle and run off when he hears the purported doberman.

      Kind of the don't-have-to-outrun-the-bear-just-you school of security.
