My rented house was broken in by buglars at 4.04am early tuesday morning through the front door. At that hour the neighbourhood was still asleep, i felt something amiss as the neighbours dogs starts barking excessively, seconds later the house alarm triggered. The panicked burglars quickly ran out climb the front gate and speed of with their motorcycle. I thank God nothing was stolen from the house. So it is wise to have your home installed with alarm system. Secondly, never try to ignore a dog's bark.
