    Good read. I'm a little ahead of the curve with cellular/battery back-up monitored security system, contacts on all doors and windows, glass break detector, and motion detectors inside and my recent DVR and cameras inside and out. I can monitor them from my phone or any PC, and playback DVR recorded material remotely. When out of town my neighbor said I can call his cell anytime and he will go check it out. They are retired and usually around. I'm hooking him up with the company that installed my camera system.

    I have cameras and reinforced the doors so far, but am looking for good window sensors.

    Not overly paranoid...our neighborhood is just changing a bit these days!
    Every day without a negligent discharge is a good day.

    If you don't mind me asking, who are you using for alarm monitoring, and are you happy with them? I'm looking to upgrade from the very basic hard line monitored system to cell.
