    So, a few times over the last year we've had our vehicles entered because we left the doors unlocked.

    Aside from the obvious, I'm looking for input on things to do to help prevent this from happening again. The cars are in the driveway, with a light which is always on. We can't park in the garage because my wife is a hoard...er, uhm, uh, preservationist.

    A security camera setup isn't in the budget right now. A game camera isn't easily hidden.

    Ideally, I'd like to put ghost pepper juice on the door handle or something similar but am struggling with a plan. SWMBO suggested bull nettle with ghost pepper juice but the actual implementation eludes me.

    Nefarious ideas?

    Well, the obvious answer seems to be, if you've had trouble with entry through unlocked doors, start locking your doors.

    Other than that, why hide a game camera? Just put it out of reach with a big sign saying video surveillance. A dog is usually a good idea as well. They tend to make a lot of noise when something is going on.

    Careful with traps. There's the legal issue and the more practical side of considering the likelihood of you accidentally triggering it on yourself.

    buy a Skylink brand driveway alarm off of Amazon for about $35
    it uses a battery powered motion sensor and a AC powered reciever that works up to 800 ft away.

    Set up the sensor in your drive way, put the monitor by your bed.. When it goes off at 2am get up and take care of the problem

    I've thought about one of those sensors. May have to go pick one up.

    Keep the vehicle windows closed and the doors locked!

    Install a motion sensor light and audible alarm that covers your vehicles.

    None of that will do any good if you have deer, raccoons, skunks, possums and other critters that walk up by your vehicles.

    Maybe build a garage and be done with it?
