Upgrading door security...
I've recently started a job where I will be away from home for a lot more than usual, with the fiance and two month old at home...thankfully with our rather large loud dog as well.
I was looking at beefing up the door security a little bit with something like this:
for both the front and back doors, as well as these:
"Patented side locking bar technology offers improved security by protecting against lock bumping, an attack technique used to defeat conventional pin & tumbler locks. "
The back door currently doesn't have a deadbolt but I do have a small security chain.
Has anyone here used the Strikemaster II Pro? Would it be better just to get the cheaper strike plates they offer at Lowes that extend a bit longer for $6 a piece?. Also we have wooden/laminate doors, not solid wood. Are they even worth beefing up at the contact points or can they easily be kicked through?
The front door has a locking glass security door so that's not as big of a concern.
