    Hi Mas,

    I was reading an old article of yours regarding common sense home burglary prevention. You mentioned home alarms, but I was wondering what you might recommend in terms of alarm systems for someone who lives in an apartment or owns a house, but maybe can't afford to go the whole ADT/BRINKS route.

    MACE security make some portable remote control battery powered motion detector alarms and similar devices. Are these viable or is there another option or company you recommend?

    Thank you very much.

    Better than nothing. They'll alert you, at least, if no one else.

    Handy for taking on the road to hotels/motels, too.
