Retiree neighbors on the left, right and across the road. They don't store video for you to watch, but they do phone in.

 

I swear they would probably know if my house was on fire before I did.

One hundred or so people each day (many of whom we know) walk down along driveway next to our house. I think that scares away potentially nasty people from lingering about. Some cameras could cover the less visible bits of the house!

Our security system is called "Poppy", unfortunately it is quite defective and will only activate when it feels like it. A bug in the system also allows unwanted visitors to bypass the security with literally any kind of food.

My mother has moved in - the alarm system from hell.... hell hath no fury like a woman who is retired, lives in the middle of nowhere and a broken leg.  I wouldn't want to be a burglar with her in the house......
