And you are saying there are no outside lights near your garage or driveway at all. Strikes me as weird.
No lights in tyhe driveway. I have no porch fixture either. Weird huh? The only light is on a 6ft pole near the porch and it takes a 60W energy efficient bulb. This is a relatively new neighborhood to us. Close to an elementary school and so LOTS of houses all around us. But we didn't have the Durango locked or the alarm set. They got the neighbors van as well. Didn't take anything but just ransacked. Looking for cash I guess or things to sell. If a light had been on, they would've most likely gone somewhere else. Neighbor next door had no light on either.

Where are you located?
I could try that. I am in Springfield, MO
I DO have to be careful. Our house is a rental. We have a very cool landlord whom we get along GREAT with. He even let us wire in a 220 for a hut tub we bought last year with no problems. I paid a friend $100 to wire it all up after I bought all the parts needed.
