This is my security system

our unlocked door was very embarrassing to explain to the police and, despite having nothing stolen, the police were greatful for the report and performed the whole CSI procedure and the information gathered was helpful in identifying the culprits who had also attempted other robberies and stolen a car in the area but it's very uncomfortable to know that we had a stranger in the house while we (and our dog) were asleep in the next room and finger print dust is a pain to remove so we're now much more conscientious about locked doors

security systems are all very well, but don't actually stop thieves getting in. I recently had Crimsafe security screens installed on all my windows. Expensive but worth every cent as I sleep soundly every night. An probably not that much more than some of these alarm and camera systems.
