If the BG knows I have an alarm, he will devise a way to defeat it if he wants in bad enough.
    If I were hungry and there was an apple sitting on the table and another sealed inside a 1 inch thick plexiglass cube, I think I would just pick up the one on the table.

    If I were a thief, I would bypass a home with a "protected by............" sign in the yard & go to the next house not displaying a sign.....just sayin.

    Those of us who are not thieves seldom think like thieves. If I were a thief and saw a sign and knew the house was alarmed, I'd think there was something inside worth ripping off. You do make a good point, and I'd imagine that the signs do scare off some thieves. It's kinda like a lock on the barn. Keeps honest people honest.
