I'd honestly rather just get robbed every other year vs deal with barking, chewing and dog ****. I'm a fish person. Maybe a shark tank ... or a moat...

I have an alarm system that never gets turned on while we're home, we keep the windows open for fresh air most of the year, and we have Shitzhus. Every bedroom that's occupied has a loaded firearm. Barking dogs and flying lead is pretty much all we rely on. Don't have the money to spend on some fancy camera system.
Should we be more concerned with security? Well, I don't feel the need for it, but I could be wrong. I trust our little midget dogs to bark at the right time, though.

It sounds stupid, but in my area we get killed by home burglaries where they break windows and either enter or open the door immediately following. I bought a roll of 3M security window film. They are about 12 mil and are completely see-through. This roll (about $150 on line) covered most of my windows. It also makes me very warm inside to think that maybe some asshole will punch my window and cry like the worthless ***** that he is and will one day die of hand cancer.
Other than that, I just lock my **** up and let my pups do the rest. The best piece of cop advise I have ever gotten is this..."If the asshole wants in, he's gonna get in. Just make it a little harder for him."

Motion sensor spotlights outside, state trooper across the street (official vehicle parked outside at odd hours and he parks it in front of our house when we're out of town), alarms on the doors and breaking glass alarm in most rooms. We're planning on getting a dog soon.

I've got decent external doors secured into reinforced frames, a load of shock sensors, a bunch of really fucking spikey bushes under the ground windows, and a load of that 3m security film. The door to my bedroom locks itself whenever it closes and is secured into a metal frame.
I'm sure someone could get in, but it'd be more painful than going down the street to rob someone else.

Have you ever considered a mating pair of Peacocks? They work WAY better than a guard dog and can't be bribed or threatened away from guarding. (also not many people understand natural indicators of threat like birds and deer. Dog work great but i would FAR rather hear a signature chattering to warn of danger/unknown rather than silence-breaking barks that cover up noises you could be listening for.)

says not approved in Florida for hurricane, but doesn't mean I still can't get it for security, I hope.

I've also just put out a bunch of cheapo solar powered landscaping lights in the backyard and in the front flower beds. I noticed while walking through the neighborhood the other night that houses with landscaping lighting looked a lot more occupied than houses without.
