Good to hear from you again… and glad that you are still in good health.
Question: Why don’t you put in a booby trap? Not anything which will hurt/maim/kill the intruders. Just trap them. If you have a long hallway, set up two heavy wire cage doors, one at each end. Reinforce the hallway so they cannot kick or dig their way out. A simple electric eye setup, similar to the gizmo for a garage door opener – that electric eye that keeps the door from shutting on your car? – can be rigged to set off the booby trap. Bad guys walk down the hall, trip the electric eye and WHAM! Both sliding steel cage doors slam down and lock.
A guy here in the states did this awhile back. I remember reading about it. Only he was a bad guy and the guys he trapped were two FBI guys.. He rigged a stairway in the house – completely home-made. Two agents made their way up the stairs and halfway up BAM!! Two cage doors slammed shut, trapping them there for quite a long time.
Just turn one of your hallways into a reinforced box so they can’t get out up, down, left or right.
Then sit back with a nice adult beverage, watching them on CCTV and call the police… you could even put in an intercom system to taunt them while they wait for the cops..
Could be fun.
