There is not much that can be done to prevent someone with experience and determination from entering your home. However there are many things we can do to decrease the likelihood of you becoming a target. After all criminals are lazy and given a choice between an easy entry and a difficult one that will always choose the easy option.Of course it all depends on how much you have to spend. The most important thing is to get good locks on your doors and windows, and to use them! But after that you can start simple with motion sensor alarms.This simple device detects movement and sounds an alarm. Basic models are very cheap costing less than $20 and they are also portable meaning you can use them in a dormitory or shared accommodation.

Home alarms have a clearly visible box on the side of the house and sound when triggered by a door or window being opened. They also use motion sensors to detect movement inside the home (good for protecting the downstairs of the house while you sleep upstairs).
