I agree with both of you regarding theft deterrence. Our home was broken into several years ago so I definitely know if it’s something they can take or smash, they will take or smash it. I’ve discussed this at length with the client (aka LOML) and it’s more for her peace of mind regarding folks that are allowed into our home. We rent out a room and technically the tenant and his/her associates have access to the whole house when we’re not around. We also had some work done on the house recently so there was a lot of traffic in and out that couldn’t be policed every second.

It’s not going to stop determined criminals but at least prevents crimes of opportunity. Not to mention gives me yet another excuse for why it’s taking so long (as if I need any more!). “Still working out your nifty locking mechanism, hun!”
