Deterring a burglar is imperative as they will always weigh the risk against reward when choosing their next target but once they break in, disrupting their intentions through an alarm or other audible devices confuses their senses. Once they know their presense has been noted it may be the only way to make them retreat empty handed - if they have even made it into the premises considering the warning devices have been triggered and their presence is no longer discreet like they wish.
