Hi, let's say I have an alarm system at home hooked into an X10 lighting system. If I am at home and the alarm is enabled, should I have the lighting system turn on any lights in the house and if so, which ones? Common areas (stairs), or everything including bedroom(s)? What if I am out of the house?

1 Have portable lighting system-surefire & co. 2 Control timing of lights on, incorporate into tactics. weapon ready portable light ready listen eyes closed-all lights on interior lights off-eyes open scan for silhouettes move family to safe room clear house- cover, scan, lights on, scan, lights off (you have the remote right?) move to new cover, repeat... Use home turf advantage, lighting to place intruder at disadvantage. Be able to clear house in the dark. Light up and cause loss of night vision in intruder, keep yourself in the dark and be mindful of light behind you that might silhouette you. Have it all figured out before you have to face this. Have your family be aware of what is going on and in cover, safe zone. If you are going to spring for the x10, put in a couple of those cameras. Forget everything I said, I made it up. Get a dog and you'll be way ahead of the game.
