that has very impressive technical specifications but would be largely ineffective at enabling law enforcement to apprehend the offender or increasing the likelihood that the stolen goods would be recovered undamaged.

Depending on the visibility of the cameras, there may be some deterrent value. We had a few break-ins in our building and we installed a similar system with signs everywhere and the break-ins stopped. Obviously, would not stop a pro, but could scare some folks away.

Scary to rookies? Possibly.

But effective at apprehending perp or recovering property undamaged? No.

And that's why it doesn't get much insurance pricing respect.

I agree, I just know if you combine a burglar system with a surveillance system.. along with 12V landscape lighting and a motion detecting security floodlight, you have a really effective combination of theft deterrence.. but correct, insurance companies don't give a crap.
