Mods I'm not sure this is the right place so if moved I'm fine with it. I do feel that the lessons learned might save others from going thru what I've just been thru so I'll carry on. 1. Dead bolts by themselves will do you no good. Lowe's has a kit which includes all the parts to give your door and you a chance to combat someone kicking in your door. It's called "DJ Armor Universal" an cost $94.00. It cost me $100.00 to have it installed but to be honest it is something that anyone can do if you have any ability at all. Of course you have to know its out there to begin with! 2. Security companys are a waste in my humble opinion if you rely only on them, or the police for that matter! YOUR SAFETY IS IN YOUR HANDS act accordly or suffer the results. 3. 10.00 dollar noise makers in key places are a better or at the very least an added layer to that security company you pay each month plus its a one time cost. BTW dogs are great but they cost a whole lot more in upkeep and time involved if you want one thats worthy of your trust or money spent. 4. If you want to catch the invader a security camera set up is a must and you can spend whatever you want but the idea is to get his puss on film! Camera angle is more important than a $2000.00 outfit! 5. And last but not least do not keep keys, money, or check books lying around, they will be taken, and you will NOT be reimbursed by your insurance company! Unless of course its after you shell out the first $500.00. (Cost to rekey house and Truck - 290.00 dollars) Cost in worry, fear, frustration, and anger=Priceless. The one time cost to keep this from happening? $100.00 per exteror door plus about $100.00 in noise makers. (Don't forget the garage door into the house). For those of you who already knew these things I'm sorry I'm so slow on the uptake yet for those of you looking for ways to give yourself an edge to a Home breakin I truly hope my hard learned lessons will help you before you need them. Be Safe everyone!
