If you think like this, you are much more likely to be better prepared to fend off such an attack or to not be attacked at all. According to the article, the number one place that homes are broken into is through the front door. The reason being that it will most likely raise the least amount of suspicion because it will appear that someone is just coming and going naturally. Her suggestions are to put a motion detector connected alarm aimed at the the front door, use a reinforced door with strong deadbolts and consider replacing a front door that contains a lot of glass.
I worked several break-ins as a police officer where the thief smashed the door almost off its hinges during the middle of the day when most people, including the neighbors, were at work. Back a service or moving van into the driveway and no one will ever be suspicious.
Stay vigilant and don't let yourself or your family become a victim. Remember, evil hates three things: light, noise and a victim that is paying attention. When someone comes onto your property at night, you want motion detector flood lights that will light up any dark areas. You want to make a would be thief have to create a huge commotion and tons of noise to get into your house. Double and triple pane glass, strong dead-bolted doors and loud alarms are a great create such a commotion. And pay close attention to your surroundings at all times and consider where a would be attacker may be hiding or may try to make an approach.
