Brigid has some very good advice
I know where I live, it would take LE at least 15 minutes to arrive, let alone an alarm company.
We use dead bolts with an extra inch of throw, & the door frames are reinforced to defeat someone trying to kick them in. We also have motion lights, & wireless motion detectors, while the motion lights would not wake us during the night, the detectors will. We keep loaded pistols, & an AR along with tactical lights & a handheld spot light at hand.
