Chapter 13. Build a Security System > Intrusion Detection

13.2. Intrusion Detection

You can't protect every inch of your home, but fortunately, intruders are pretty predictable in the methods they use to gain access. They don't like to make a lot of noise, so they probably won't cut through one of your walls. Instead, they'll try to enter through a door or window.

So we've narrowed down the possible points of entry, but most homes have several doors and windows. Protecting all of them could get expensive, so it's important to prioritize these potential entrances. First, focus your energy on doors and ground-floor windows that are concealed from the street. For me, I'm most concerned about the door at the back of my house that is completely concealed below a deck and a bulkhead. It's the door an intruder would most likely attempt to gain entry through, so it's the first one I need to protect.
