@JTJ: Thanks for sharing. Great idea on the question codes. We live in a two-story, all exits
downstairs, all bedrooms upstairs. We are alarmed as well but I guess I don't trust it 100
percent. If we ...

Thanks guys. Honestly, I haven't asked him for fear of looking too eager or excited about my

All good points to consider. As a family man, home invasion is my biggest fear as well. We had
