I don't think it's silly to hang bells on your doors.
In fact, we have them on ours and though they're primarily for our animals, they can also alert us to the average intruder. When I was younger, my
parents strung up sleigh bells on my bedroom door because I regularly sleep-walked and once they found me outside. I suppose I just adopted and
adapted their methods to prevent the opposite.
It would be excellent to get ground footage of aircraft and flying objects via wildlife camera, however I'm certain the sensors are incapable of
picking up movement at extreme distances. Typically, they only have an effective "spotting range" of about 50-100ft, which means anything outside of
100ft goes unnoticed by the camera.
However, they would be ideal for staking out your property.
As for my personal experiences... it's a long story, but I'll make it quick.
When my wife was a little girl she had a few encounters with an "intruder". It would stand in the doorway of her bedroom (which is now OUR current
bedroom) unless the door was closed. For this reason, we sleep with the bedroom door, closet door and window closed every night, she fears that it
will return and keeping them closed seems to keep it at bay.
I usually fall asleep after her, we'll watch a movie or television show on Netflix and she's out like a light within the half-hour. Often, I'll
have the window open because it's been dreadfully hot in our room since it got warm and naturally, I forget to close it before I fall asleep.
She wakes up one night while we're both asleep in a panic. She says my name and shakes me. "I had a terrible dream." and so I grab her close and
kiss her and tell her it's alright... then she asks "Is the window open?".
So. I've forgot a few times now. Every time I leave the window open, either I or she has a terrible nightmare... I've had a few recently, terrible,
terrible dreams and I RARELY remember my dreams and they've never been horrible like this.
A few times, I've made lewd gestures to whatever "it" is... grabbed myself and told it to "suck it" and the power went out in the house, just
2-weeks ago, in daylight, no storms/outtages.
She's had the coffee decanter somehow jaunt itself out of the coffee maker.
Those are just a couple of experiences... though we've had more.
I dunno... coincidence isn't something I really subscribe to. Perhaps it is my imagination but I've dealt with crap like this before and I know when
things aren't right.
