As an owner of a freehold based security company I have noticed an increase in home burglaries in Monmouth county in the recent past. We have also noticed a trend , while a home invader will enter a home with just an alarm they typically stay away from homes armed with security cameras. Security cameras have come a long way over the last couple of years. For example; you can have your security camera system notify you when there is movement in front of a specific area or camera via email or text at no additional monthly monitoring costs

"a file draw size floor safe"? Is that similar to a file drawer size floor safe?

That is pretty nuts. I hope that everything ended up alright in the end. I think that it would be pretty scarey to have someone break into my house, I would feel pretty bad for them. Jason. http://www.ceramabond.com.au/
