why would anyone invade your home?
Our home was broken into when we lived in a nicer NJ suburb outside of Edison. Not the GREATEST, but certainly not the center of Trenton. You never know. Nice areas minimize chance, but they don't eliminate chances completely.
That's not to hint at being completely paranoid though. People steal stupid crap, sometimes people just break in for the sake of causing mischief because they're bored teenagers, who knows?

One of the more common reasons in the UK is if you own a decent (usually high performance) car , as the easiest way to take them is by getting the keys.
Of course in that situation you'd just hand the keys over , end of problem.
The power to stop burglaries
and home invasions!
Alarms can't do the job.
And police can't
get there in seconds.
You must have a system
that stops the crime even
if the police never show up
The website really goes after the RSBD crowd, but this could be useful.

I stopped a home invader once in my building/house. I lived in a Victorian that had converted to apartments, one in back/upstairs (mine) and one downstairs front. I woke up around 2:30 AM to hear my friend in the front screaming, "get the **** out of my house!!". My housemate and I ran outside and around to the front door and had to remove a huge, stoned, drunk college guy. Everyone was in my way so I told them to get on the porch and I had to wrestle the guy out the front door.
I wasn't sure if he was a friend of the other housemate who was out of town so I didn't just crack him with a rattan stick. He had broken through a window and keep saying he just wanted to sleep on the couch and that he had permission from some girl. I ended up punching him in the neck and launching him off the porch. Cops came and arrested him and almost arrested me.
I think he was on the wrong corner looking for some girl, but he did break a window to get in.
An EBMAS guy up in Alaska had a similar story. Guy knocks on his door late at night. He opens it and the guy goes crazy on him so he beats him back out into the hall and locks the door, calls police. Guy comes back, kicks in door and gets beat back out into hall and runs off, police are called again. EBMAS guy loads Smith and Wesson and sits in chair. Bad guy comes back a third time pushes past broken door and comes into room, meets SandW's little lead fingers. No more badguy.
Turns out he was the boyfriend of a girl in the same apartment, but in the next building over, and must have thought a guy was doing his girl.
Both true and both involve idiots on the wrong block at the wrong house. So you can't count on being in a good neighborhood. You just have to practice for everything.

Did any of those disable/elderly people own firearms?
Are you elderly/disabled?
My brother in laws brother was arrested a few months ago for breaking and entering a garage. The owner, a woman heard a whole heap of commotion and investigated to find him completely inebriated staring at a wall. She asked him to leave but he kept staring at the wall. Cops were called and he probably would have been moved on if he didn't decide to run. They charged him with b&e and resisting.
The next day he said he didn't remember a thing, however he somehow found out where he was and went to apologise to the lady. He reckons the house was almost identical to his old family home and was only a couple of streets away.
