My experience would give Nerdlings idea the best bet.
When I donned night vision goggles, everything was bright. Tripwire activated bright ass megawat halogen lights would burn the NVGs up and blind the
But I must ask the same question:
Why would special forces be sneaking around your property at night?
This is a very sily scenario.
1. Special forces operate overseas. The people you need to worry about is the FBI and ATF and DEA.
2. Above people would not be sneaking around anyones property at night. Especially not with NVGs. Above people would move in en forces with
helocopters and swat vans everywhere. They would be kicking in your door, and raiding your house. If you lived in an urban type neighborhood, NVGs
would not be neded: the street lights, plus helocopter searchlights and baha lights could light up your house like a roman candle.
3. If you live in a rural area, again, they bring thier own lighting. NVGs are mostly for unpoplated or les than devloped areas.
About the only person I could think of sneaking around my property at night would be some pervert with NVGs trying to peek. In that case, Nerdlings
idea rules. I think its a great idea even if the perp has no nvgs. Hitting a tripwire and setting off bright halogen lighting is a good deterant to
scare away prowlers, or at least illuminate them so u can call the cops.
