I'm considering adding some motion activated lights on the outside of the house and that got me thinking about what else I could do to better prepare the house against a potential break in and/or assault by massed hordes. No claymores, concertina wire or cleared lanes of fire...well there will be cleared lanes of fire. Motion lights outside, reinforced door and door frame, good locks... what else? Window locks (screw down type) can help windows from being pried open, but there is always the flower pot through the window approach to entry... Just thinking out loud to get the conversation started. Glad to have this new sub-forum and we need to use it. Ah, lastly, I was at Fry's and they seem to have decent multi-camera setups for reasonable prices. I like that idea too.
