WEST Yorkshire Police have recommended an alarm to help beat the burglars.
The Audio Alert Light alarm is an external sensor that switches on a light outside.
It also sets off a chime inside the house every time a movement past it is detected.
The chime plugs into a normal three pin plug socket and also sounds in the day even though the external light will not go on.
The alarm is recommended for homes, cars, garages and sheds.
Crime reduction officer, Pc Chris Green, said: "I have been trying to promote the use of this light for a long time.
"I have therefore made a demonstration unit which will be on display at B&Q in Leeds Road.
"It shows a working model of the unit and allows the public to appreciate the protection this unit can give."
Audio Alert Light costs £34.95.
