    Lockbox would have prevented all of this. Assuming entry through the door (and not window etc.), even if there was a theft, suspects would be limited to those with the code.

    Really interested in one of their ceiling lights, do you know where they have this locally here in HK? I want to check them out. Thanks

    Lots of thieves/burglars won't bother with opening the safes/lockboxes. They'll just cart the whole thing off. Ask the wealthy owners of mansions with several thousands of cash and jewelry stolen because their safes weren't solidly bolted to the ground. Though even those bolted might not be immune.

    I think you are mixed up on the topic and the terminology.
    The OP got tools stolen from a construction site that was impproperly secured using normal procedures which is a lockbox. Lockbox is not a safe. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real-e...them%20secure. The assumption was that it was not a first floor unit so the only means of entry was via the front (and only door). Hence, a lockbox would have given access only to people with authorization.
    If it had been a household burglary sure a safe properly bolted to the floor is an absolute necessity.
