A lot depends upon where you live.

Which Country are you from?

Welcome Martin.
I think  Dannytsg covered most of the points re protecting your property.
I would add maybe a Digital Video Recorder as part of
Your CCTV system and an autodialler on
an alarm system to dial your mobile phone.

This is NOT to be confused with DEFENDING  your property ,
where the current police approved procedure is to cower
Under your stairs while desperately dialling 999. Any physical
defence efforts on your part will probably get you arrested. :-[

Not quite true, despite UK laws prohibits use of effective means specifically for self defence (firearms, knives etc), you can still fight back against attacker (but the question is with what?) and any injury or death caused will not have you prosecuted if it was clearly self defence...

So if you kill an attacking intruder with a baseball bat, you will be clear of any crimes, so long as you explain how managed to have a baseball bat at hand...

The answer to 1984 is 1776


"Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both"

Benjamin Franklin (January 17th 1706 ? April 17th 1790)

No. If there is any injury or fatality to intruder or assailant you will probably be arrested
and then bailed (after having your fingerprints and DNA sample taken) and spend the next
two months sweating whilst the CPS decide if your response was reasonable or
proportionate.You may have to report your being arrested to your employer.
I know I would, or face disciplinary action for failure to disclose.
I'd draw little comfort from the CPS finally deciding there was no case to answer .

We need the clarity of a "Castle" or "stand your ground" doctrine that is crystal clear to
both householder and especially the Police. It is far too vague at present .

We are often told that Police Officers , even wide awake and with their training,have to make split second decisions when confronted
by an assailant, or person armed with a weapon. Why should untrained householders have to run through a mental checklist
before confronting an intruder ?

Here is an often ignored point of home defense,  a security system should detect an intruder before he enters your home,    the perimeter of a property can be ringed with infrared leds and detectors, switches on gates,  break wires or switches on window screens,  doors, etc.....  Once a bloke is inside your home,   you are in hot water......

It's a link.....allegedly to a UK Govt petition about someone named Deniz Ozmen. There are no details and a quick google/bing/ask search reveals nothing but the usual linkedin and stuff.

I'd give it a wide berth! See the posters name!!
