Is this a problem in the larger major cities like Toronto?
The answer is YES, it is a growing problem, but still not a very common occurrence in residential robberies. This is because most residential burglaries are "crimes of convenience or opportunity". Thieves don't plan to enter a specific home; they just seize upon an immediate opportunity to do so. Most just ring the front doorbell, and when no one answers, they simply kick in the front door !!! So little or no planning is involved ! The presence of good physical security and an alarm system is usually enough to send them over to your neighbour's home, where they know that they can find all the same things in that home as in yours, but with little risk or difficulty in entering.
However, the opposite is true with commercial robberies where thieves are often somewhat more knowledgeable in such matters. There the risk of loss of contents far exceeds the extra costs of cellular backup and can be a cost effective solution to telephone line cut by professional thieves.
For situations involving remote cottages, where no phone service is available, or for homes where you are not going to install a landline, the
