    If the one you found is programmed to the local sheriff dept. and or other first responders you MAY really have a problem.

    Just be SA and ready.

    Definitely get some motion sensor flood lights for the ouside of the house. Camera will only help after something has happened or if you are monitoring it at that moment. Stay safe.

    I'd set up some trip wires and other nice surprises around the place for a couple of weeks. Any unauthorized visitors would get a heck of a surprise, as well as getting found out.

    Trip wires would be a great idea.

    If things ever get really bad in this country with looting etc, the trip wire would be very effect.

    Funny quote of the day!

    I always wondered if those game cameras didn't have flashes on them.

    The trip-wire idea could leave you open to legal action if you friendly local low-life hurts himself. (I am not a lawyer, though)

    Very glad to hear that your wife did not open the door.

    Could have turned into a home invasion, rape, or even murder.

    I never open the door unless I know who it is.

    Cameras can alert you when there is motion and allow you to monitor your perimeter from the comfort of your home without alerting the intruder that they have been detected. Alternately you can have motion sensors alert you when some one enters your property. IMO a combination of cameras, heat & motion sensors as well as motion activated lights and remotely activated lighting are the way to go. Or at least that is the what we did.

    IMO trip wires are old tech better suited for in the field or bush.

    As far as the trip wires. What I would really like to set up isn't legal. Effective, but not legal.

    We had to leave town last weekend. When we got home, everything was just as we had left it. None of my markers had been disturbed. We are going to be careful not to let our guard down, but it sure was nice to come home to a intact house.

    Oh man....that would have me a bit wigged out there. SOme good suggestions...some wierd ones. I would go for the motion lights, and a diligent SA.

    Ask neighboors to eye ball the house if you leave for any lenght of time. Take a pie or something to them every now and then just to give them incentive to help you out. That's what we do on occasion.

    Actually, the DVR posted above has an alarm output that you can tie into your alarm system. I'm not sure if it has the motion detection or not, but I'd recommend the GE TruVision series as you can adjust the motion detection and take out certain sections... if there's a road running through the middle of the picture, you can set it not to detect motion there. Without a camera, if the suspect leaves before police arrive, it's just another wild goose chase. On a side-note, if you're going to get a surveillance system, spend the extra money and don't go with something you'll find at Best Buy, Fry's, etc. Talk to a real security expert. A decent surveillance system will integrate with an alarm system very well if you choose to. The DVR mentioned above only has one alarm output, but on the higher-end models to can have each camera output to a different alarm, corresponding to a different zone on the security/alarm system.

    Not sure if anyone knows this or not, just thought I would throw this out there as an FYI, but there is an app for smart phones that allows you to listen in on dispatch frequencies. I have it on my blackberry for fun but handheld/car scanners are not needed a person can just use their cell phone.

    Keep in mind that app only works if someone in the area is nice enough to stream their scanner over the 'net as a media stream--the Blackberry itself doesn't have the radio capabilities to listen in on those frequencies.

    After reading all of the comments, which were all excellent, one more:

    If you and your wife each have your own cars/trucks, trade back and forth frequently enough to really confuse someone trying to monitor traffic in and out.
