If I had a bit more engineering know how I'd love to combine a motion detector camera with a rapid fire paintball gun and make one one those auto sentry guns they had in Aliens.

Would keep the neighbours cats out of the garden as well.

Another idea is to make sure all internal doors are shut before you go out. That way, if a burglar looks through the window/letter box, they can only see into that room and won’t be able to tell if someone is in a rear room behind a closed door.

I’ve invested a bit of cash in smart home

2 echo dots

Smart bulbs downstairs and some of upstairs

Alexa set up on timers so random times of day can put the lights on and then off so looks like people in

TV remote controlled via it so can put it on randomly so looks like someone watching tv

Even can set it up to play music randomly for an hour or so

Game changer

Sounds like you're operating a mobile disco for the burglars

When I have had a proper play with it I can programme it to listen for the sound of my burglar alarm and when activated turn the lights red and flash

Proper rave
