NOT saying you should do this, but if you were playing with a couple of these and forgot to pick them up when you were does with them, well that would hardly be your fault would it.

They have some neat devices for signaling intrusion on your property.

They steal the batteries for the 5 dollar core charge. So that 200 dollar battery you have to replace got the thief 5 bucks. (or whatever the core charge is in your state)
2 of my sons work for a medium sized framing contractor.They hear all kinds of stories about jobsites getting hit for tools.It happened so often that the tools would show up regularly on craigslist being sold by the same guy.After buying their own tools back a few times,they figured they would show up with a couple of backup buddies and show the seller the error of his ways.That didn't go well as the seller turned out to be the biggest fence in the detroit area and had his own armed security as well as the dpd looking the other way and even actively working for the guy.They worked a deal with the fence and gets a call when their stolen stuff shows up and he gives them a repeat customer discount.Ain't life great?

Neighbor is a fairly large grading and general contractor. They have shifted from using storage trailers/containers on job sites, and just have their guys commute each day in work body trucks with all their tools on board. Everything other than heavy equipment leaves the site daily, and gets parked in a secure yard. Sad that's what it's come to.

Dog + lights + alarm + yard alarm + cameras + impact film on all the windows + home defense weapon. And keep your cars in the garage!

When we lived in Venetian Isles in ST Pete they stole stuff out of cars all the time but it was only from unlocked cars. Most of these people put very little effort into breaking in they only check unlocked cars or sheds and if your garage door is open they will go in there too. They hardly ever bothered with boats on the lifts but I did have a set of batteries and 3 nets taken during construction; I believe that was probably one of the workers. From what I've seen and heard the police put very little effort into catching them.

Most of these meth heads are thieves targeting easy opportunities. Besides doing what others have said here, please do not store your firearms in your vehicle overnight. It only takes a few seconds to grab one from the house, and put it in the car in the morning. Arming these miscreants will only allow them to further their criminal career, and possibly get someone hurt or killed.

Personally I take a different approach. There is absolutely NOTHING outside for you to screw with or steal, it's all INSIDE and to get to it you'll need to break into my home and when you do that your ass is MINE, ALL MINE!!! I can't say in an open forum what's going to happen but there won't be any need to use lights or sirens, ain't no body going anywhere... I have Serv-Pro on speed dial for clean up......

I forgot to lock my car in Cary one day and someone stole my aviation gear bag. $2000 worth of stuff gone. Sucks. Detective said they probably threw most of it away not knowing the value.

I was hoping they would activate the PLB, hasn’t happened yet...

Do these work with Dragon's Breath rounds? Asking for a friend...

They have a lot of these incidents in S FL, 30-40 cars in one night. They hit every car that ISN'T LOCKED. We had several incidents recently with unlocked cars. A neighbor in a nearby duplex was getting ready for work. He heard some kind of thud on the wall from next door. He didn't think anything of it until he saw the hole in the wall and the slug on his bed. He banged on the door and a 17 year old answered, he was all apologetic and asked that he didn't tell his mom or the landlord. He called the cops. They showed up, turns out the gun was stolen from the unlocked car of a retired cop. What kind of idiot leaves a loaded gun in an unlocked car. It turned out he did the other unlocked car burglaries. They moved and the guy that almost got shot hasn't heard anything from the police.
