What are your real and or favorite methods of securing your property?  Be it home, vehicle or your companies property, there may be a time when someone wants it for themselves.  Everyone has to deal with the fact that a great deal of thefts are not recovered.  Many people just rely on insurance to cover the losses.  You will not always be on site to defend things yourself.  Would you be willing to use police backed products like lojack?  Do you bolt down safes in your home?  Bars on windows are common in some places, and nowhere to be found in others. 

Many common security measures have proven to be ineffective, such as bumping a tumbler lock, or simply breaking a window and bypassing the locks.  Of course nothing is theft proof, but maybe you know ways to make things to be too much trouble to be worth the effort.

Personally I prefer methods that are not readily visible.  Hidden kill switches that would render hot-wiring ineffective.  Electrified car kits are offered commercially, and are essentially electric fences for cattle applied to a vehicle.  

Hidden doors would be nice, but I would prefer no one enter the building to begin with.

I've been wondering about potentially using electric barbed wire fence.  It worries me enough to not be sure I even would want to use such a thing.

What are your ideas?

The best strategy I ever heard of was putting semi-valuable stuff out for thieves to make them think they got the goods; unless you're dealing with professional burglars (who'll mostly be dealing with upper class neighborhoods, I imagine) then the thief will want to get the hell out ASAP before somebody shows up- so, give them a decoy.

Cameras, trip wires, electric fences, I hide the goods. Ideally I'd have armed security personnel at all times. I use common sense when parking my car. There are places that you just don't go to.

Albuquerque is a pretty violent place, I avoid the worst places.

Now-a-days protecting property form intruders/thieves become vital for all. For my villa I have strong security fence, and added Intruder detection sensors to it. These sensors will alert me when some activity is happening near the fence. 2 CCTV cameras and I have 2 German shepherds which will be unhooked in nights. They are strong, intelligent and well trained.

^Can I come live with you? Cool

 I'm lucky to live in an area that's been deemed one of the safest places in the U.S. And, no I'm not being sarcastic and referring to Sin City. I'm talking about a different area that surrounds it.

 My family has a standard alarm system. I would like to get a firearm as well. I don't know if it counts or not, but we have a tiny Maltese that has a pit bull attitude. Grin
