Burglary (also called breaking and entering and sometimes housebreaking) is an unlawful entry into a building or other location for the purposes of committing an offence. Usually that offence is theft, but most jurisdictions include others within the ambit of burglary.
Protection of a household against burglars can include defences from anti-burglar paint through safety and security window film to burglar-proof doors and windows and burglar alarms. A little over half of burglars would bypass a house if they thought it had alarm protection.
Sturdy internal or external burglar guards can serve as a highly effective visible deterrent to burglars. And in some cases that is all that needs to happen – making a burglar rather choose a less secure target.
