Re: Your home deadbolt/locks are totally ineffective. You have to remember, we are talking about walking into 90% of the homes in America, in 1-5 seconds, with an 8$ set of blanks. This voids all insurances, and cops automatically view you as a suspect. Forced entry is an entirely different subject, and is covered by insurance, and police view this entirely differently.
Lets face it, unless you have some good locks, with some measures I posted, then you can be compromised in 1-5 seconds by virtually anyone with even 1/4 of a brain. I have a video of a 7 year old girl bumping a lock that represents 90% of the ones installed on homes. If you use securekey, or comparable products, the situation is even worse.. I think a lot of folks are realizing they have compromised locks, and making excuses.
There are still methods, very cheap ones to prevent SOME forced entry. For example a very low cost 'film' can be placed on the inside of windows making them hammer proof, projectile proof, virtually unbreakable. This stuff used to be really expensive, now it's pennies a foot and takes half a day to install on all of your ground floor windows, and door windows.
First one is normal glass, second is the security film.. Stunning isn't it? Remember, easy to install, virtually unbreakable.
