I think I'm pretty safe with my alarm system, dogs and the loaded 44 under my pillow.
Just kidding about the loaded gun. They're all locked away.
I had a buddy who, years ago, had his house broken into while he was sleeping. He woke up and found the guy walking through his house. The perp should have robbed a different house. My buddy's pretty big, about 6'5", pushing 300#, and he beat the crap out of this guy. Apparently he had the guy pleading for him to stop hitting him before the cops showed up. I wasn't there, of course, but he's not one, nor his wife, to conjure up a story.
