OK good.First, my error in quoting you; my intent was not to alter the context...
As far as investigating - of course I do... but that is before I pick a CoA. Critters vs. BGs is a consideration.
I like your ideas about the Panic Button...I actually use SimpliSafe and upgraded to two siren alarms one in each building. Panic buttons are in both buildings and all my vehicles. LED motion detecting lights on all buildings as well as some battery powered motion detecting lights. I screw them in trees in the woods - positioned so the light shines away from me and my pre-planned routes and likely positions. I put them high - use a ladder to get to them. They aren't real bright but they illuminate. Kinda like a parachute flare. (they last about three or four months).
I have other ideas too but, i am hoping to see what others have for input.
