I just made an investment of all new equipment which is kept in the garage. I've had some major problems with minorities in the neighborhood once before. Tonight I pulled on the street and noticed a car scoping out our house. When I made that turn they drove off, I turned around, and chased them all the way down to the store where they turned in. Turned out to be one caucasian driving that was missing a leg, claimed it was from a war. His car was full of the minority race, turned out to be the same ones that I had issues with before. Poor minorities sent the little caucasian on a crash dummy mission, when I hopped out of the truck in the cowboy hat, he started shaking like he didn't know what he got himself into. The minority in the front had on black clothing and sunglasses, need I say it was in the middle of the night. Now I'm not worried about them one bit when I'm here to protect my house and equipment. But it would be greatly appreciated if I could here all the advice in how to secure my equipment in the garage when I'm not home. I don't want to come home to a surprise and be put out of business by some lowlifes, so I want to prevent it before something happens. I keep the garage locked, and double locked with security padlocks on a bracket. I was thinking about switching the dead bolts on the garage door where you have to unlock them from the inside of the garage. Does this sound like a smart idea even though it would be a hassle? The only thing our garage is used for is storing expensive equipment. I figure when we're not at home I would put the laptops, etc. in there. At least for a few months until I know they're not up to something slick. I also called for extra police patrol in the area, but that fades away over time. Tomorrow I'm installing two cameras, one over the garage/front door area and another where are privacy fence gate is. Our garage door area is protected by large bright motion sensed led's, no one is going up there at night. The security problematic area is the privacy fence gate in the front lawn and the entire front lawn is pitch black at night. Any ideas on locking the garage down as tight as possible fast would be appreciated!
