Use a combination of hidden and visible burglar proofing
The best method to keep thieves from seeing your property as a suitable target is to make noticeable security changes. Guard dogs, subscription to a security company, wall-spikes and fencing all fall in this category. If an opportunistic criminal walks by a residential dwelling that puts clear defence tactics on display, they might not attempt a robbery.
On the other hand, if an individual or gang decides to stalk your stronghold and devise a plan for pushing through the barriers, a second set of defences can hinder their operations. If they’ve prepared a route to bypass all security measures they can see, you can still catch them with the unnoticed traps. You can, for instance, install hidden beams to sound the alarm when movement is picked up. Robbers will only try to disable traps they are aware of, but the ones that are out of sight can alert you in time to call for help.
