In short, the presence of a dog instantly makes your house less of a target than your neighbor without.

Putting an “alarmed home” signage in front of your house, continues the outward projection of risk to the potential burglar.

Ensuring hedges and shrubs around the house are kept trim and do not afford a “hiding place” for a potential burglar to hide during breaking and entering.

Lighting .. a well lit exterior in the evening hours (even if no motion detection is in place) is a low cost deterrent.

Installing an alarm system (I see other answers shared a number of technological solutions so I’ll pass on that).

Know your neighbors. Really know your neighbors, their schedule and their norms of activity … the “nosey” neighbor is a good thing (think Neighborhood Watch Programs).

Remember the purpose of securing your home is to keep unwanted guests out. It is also to deter unwanted guest from attempting to enter … when you raise the risk factor, you have transferred the risk to those who are not projecting security.

Practice what I Preach

Our street — 7 houses, 10 dogs, everyone knows everyone (including extended family) we talk to each other and every house has an alarm system. Multiple families have occupants which are home every day, all day (the neighborhood watchers). We call when a cougar, bear or coyote sightings occur, and we call when we see unexpected activity on our lane.

Dogs know the vehicles that belong and those which don’t. When the 10 dogs begin to talk to each other, we tend to listen. Have we had unwanted visitors at 2AM? - YES. Have they been detected? YES. When were they detected? As they walked down the street.

BONUS: Dogs are man’s best friend (an added benefit, and shelters are full of those needing a good home) they will guard you in exchange for love, affection and kibbles.

The time it takes for installations varies between 30 minutes and 1 hour for a security door installation, this is dependent on the type of product being installed.
A window grille typically takes 10-15 minutes to install. A fire exit window will take around 30 minutes to 1 hour

We prefer that you are at home when your screens and doors are being installed.

However it is not always a requirement some jobs can be done externally

Generally Speaking Though, Security Doors, Windows And Screens Usually Only Need A Wipe Down With A Soft Cloth And Mild Detergent To Keep Them Looking New.
