I thought I'd start a home security thread. I doubt that there is already an existing one, because I don't remember seeing it.

Anyway I wanted to beef up the security in my home to make it harder to break into. So far, I've nailed a back door shut that's never going to be used, and will someday be replaced with a wall. It's at the bottom of an outdoor stairwell that's just a place for storm water to enter the house during severe weather conditions.

Also ordered a Schlage Primus lock for the front door that takes a key to lock/unlock from both sides. It's supposed to be pick and bump proof. But, it looks like ways have been discovered recently to pick and bump them open.

Here's some door armor that I've also found that I might order soon. Costs about $100 per door. Makes the door virtually kick proof.
