    Two dogs that go crazy when they hear any noise outside. I hate windy nights... bark bark bark all night long.......

    My dog is sometimes a heavy sleeper, so I got a couple f those little stick-on door alarms and keep them set to chime. The dog knows chime=someone coming in or out and will go investigate. Cost: $10, plus dog.

    No dog here at the moment (I <3 German Shepherd's though).

    Halogen flood lights on motion detectors covering every angle of approach.

    At least two locks (doorknob lock and deadbolt) on each door. I haven't oiled the hinges in a long time and they're pretty creekey, too.

    Shatterguard film on all lower-story windows.

    I'm a light sleeper. I don't worry much about it, unless an extremely skilled thief wants to uber-quietly pick my locks, I'm going to wake up. And it's not going to end well for him.

    Peace,
    Pete Zaria.

    Two dogs and a good alarm system. Motion activated lighting at key positions around the yard.

    German Shepard and a mean Siberian Husky - come on in, it will save on the dog food bill.

    Think I have seen it on this board, but can't resist:

    What to know who really loves you?

    Lock your wife and your dog in a closet. Wait and hour and let them out. Then see which is happier to see you.

    Me.

    I'm the lightest sleeper on this planet I think.

    My cat walks into the room and I'm awake just from the whisper of their little paws on the carpet.

    A mouse farts in the next county and I'm awake. Then poor JD gets the, "Honey.. Honey, wake up. Something's wrong."

    Poor guy could sleep through a tornado (and HAS slept through earthquakes) so it's a good thing he's got me.

    Limatunes, I am just like you, at least I was. Wife can sleep through a stampede, I wake up when one of the cats roll over or stretches.

    Now 15mg of "Princes Valium" puts me under for a good uninterrupted 5 hours with the exception of the dog barking. tested that one a couple of nights ago.

    Pulled me out after 2 hours of sleep. On auto pilot, grab the BE, head upstairs, herd the wife talking and asked if everything is OK before I rounded the corner. She had a friend over to visit. Second stranger the dog has met. Still learning.

    An alarm, and both my neighbors have dogs that hate me. They'll bark at anything remotely resembling motion in my yard.

    I live in an apartment so having an alarm system is a no-go

    I have these great little door alarms I found in a bargain bin at fry's electronics, $6 bucks for 4 of them.

    They are magnetically activated and they are LOUD.

    There are two in the entryway (one on the front door, one on the sliding glass door).

    There is one on the spare bedroom window, and one on the main bedroom window.

    The only other entrance is the front window, I don't have an extra alarm but I keep my bedroom door locked, so they'd effectively have to kick it in to get in at me.

    I hope I'd wake up by then.

    Uh, er, that is about to change. Sleep deprivation will change a few things.
