It seems to be rather prevalent throughout Central America – historically, as a deterrent to house theft.  I think thieves are a bit more sophisticated now, so it does not seem that necessary., although it may deter some thieves.  But theft is the most common crime in Costa Rica, so you do need to be vigilant.
