Q: My brother and his girlfriend had a break-in Friday. Their little bungalow has a gate around it and a ton of morning glory vines that hide the house very well once you are in the gate. The vines make the house nice and private, but at the same time, once the burglar was in the gate he was free to dig through the house and steal away. Thought I would ask the Apartment Therapy peeps what might be some good security options for a single family dwelling on a quiet street with almost no foot traffic. Looking for both high and low-tech options. Sent by TracyJ
