Unless you've got some lights going, in a SHTF event, nobody is going to believe you have power for it.


In the regular home defense situation, I have to think most burglars know that an electric fence is usually just designed to produce a mild shock, but still enough to prohibit one climbing it. A fence alone is usually enough to make one skip to the next house target.

Shortly after moving into a new house my wife locked herself and the kids out. Having no spare key and no other way in I had to kick our front door in. I was shocked it only took one medium strength kick and the door was open. I am definitely going to look into the door hardening that braces to the floor.

Important note, if you have double doors like I do, you'll need a different kit than the one for a single door. I am pretty happy with what I already have, but when checking it out (Strikemaster), I could easily see I'd need something different. They also make one for double doors though.

Currently, I have slide locks in both the top and bottom of each door, where they meet (4 total). At night, as we go to bed and lock up, we use these. Also, we have a security strip on each door, where they meet, that means any attempt to kick in the door will have to go through metal, not wood. Eventually, we'll replace these doors with metal versions (that look like nice wooden ones), like the other doors, but a bit pricey at the moment. (will also help keep them from swelling every time it rains here).
