This is terribly low-tech by today’s standards, but I love it anyway. Take an old landline phone. Attach a motion detector to it. Program it with your cellphone number (or work number if you’re that way) and just wait.
Should someone enter your home, and be detected by the sensor, it will call you so you can listen to them burglarize you.
For $80, sounds like more fun than a barrel of monkeys.
