I don't have security bars on any of my windows,because i want

to make sure my family and i can quickly exit the house in case

of fire,not worried about thieves,they are still going to get in one

way or another,whatever they take can be replaced,but you only

have one life,and i don't want to be burnt to a crisp,because there

are bars on the windows.think about it.

If we were living in wood houses, as in many other countries, would agree but here there are almost no home fires that would require such an escape.  Cement and tile are not fast burners and each room is a virtual safe room.  I would have more concerns in shophouse/townhouse however.

You right I should had written this reply in Thai. LOL

even if the intruder don't understand "Police" he might understand that he has being detected and that someone is yelling at him, and that someone is not going back to sleep. 

Also he might understand the loud alarm and the implications associated with, 

No chance, Thais love anything loud, motorbikes, music,  alarms you name it

You are so very very wrong....furniture is the main killer....research shows that 30 years ago, you had about 17 minutes to escape a house fire. Today it's down to three or four minutes. The reason: Newer homes and the furniture inside them actually burn faster and emit gases that WILL KILL you.

Exactly. The fire generally doesn’t kill anyone, it’s typically the smoke.

Know of a house, steel grilles on every door & window. Thieves climbed onto the roof and lifted a few tiles, guess they thought with all that security must have something worth stealing. 

I have 2 dogs, one sleeps inside, one out.  Inside dog also works as fire/smoke detector, also kills the occasional mouse.

If you have ever seen a sofa ablaze,it's not the fire itself that is maybe dangerous

it's the smoke and toxic fumes that will easily kill you,and i think electrical fires

are not uncommon here,add to that the length of time for the fire department 

to arrive !
