Re: Window coverings

A burgler alarm hooked to a cell phone. Also signs on the ground and decals on the windows.

Re: Window coverings

Not the cheapest, but Pella makes dual pane windows with the mini-blinds inside the glass.  

 

There are also windows made that become opaque when a current is applied (or is it visa-versa ?)

Re: Window coverings

Vertical blinds work great at letting in light without having to open them enough for peering eyes from the outside.  I replaced all of the large blinds in our RV with Levelor verticals.  With the exception of two 2nd floor rear windows on the house, all of the windows have verticals on them.

 

You can also install a local alarm system on doors and windows, or go for broke and get a monitored system for the whole house.  Motion sensors and glass break detectors can be added to the system, along with smoke/fire detectors.
