I have been doing a lot of reading about how home invasions are on the increase now. I've noticed that a lot of home invasions occur in the early morning hours, like between 3AM and 5AM. Of course most of us are asleep during those hours.
I lock my bedroom door every night when my wife and I go to bed (for which I get a lot of grief). I have always felt that if someone broke into my home while we were asleep I do not want them to be able to just walk into our room. I figured that the noise from forcing open a locked door might just give me the few seconds I'd need to prepare defensively.
Now I've decided to go ahead and replace the hollow bedroom door with a metal door complete with dead bolt. We could then use this room as a sort of "safe room"
Does anyone else have this type of preparation in their homes or am I just being "paranoid" like my wife says?
