This would never work in other applications. A professional would never set up a computer network for a customer and fail to install an adequate system of cyber protection. A dentist would never recommend you not bother brushing since the cavities will get in anyway. It would seem criminal for them to do so!
And yet this sort of thing happens in residential and commercial building security all the time. Advice is given without an understanding of break-and-entry technique, hardware is installed that is easily compromised and no long term solutions are given the customer without a monthly price tag.
My advice? Deal with Locksmiths or security professionals who take the time to fully survey your property to find the best solution for you. Set aside a portion of your home or business budget for external security as well as monitoring. You should be offered options and be given a full explanation of particular risks to your building. There should be self-monitoring systems with no monthly fee offered you as well as barrier suggestions regarding your premesis.
You’ll be surprised how much you can save in the long run and actually retain greater control of your property.
