Even gated residential areas are not safe from burglary. A friend who recently moved to a high-end part of the city had to check out a number of security systems to select the best system that suits his family's needs. He's not taking any chances when it comes to security even though that property is gated and with tight security.
Yet another friend in another gated high-end neighbourhood had to install a security video camera at every entrance/exit point of his sprawling home. Since he opted for the wireless system, there is no visible wiring which makes installation easier. However, he needs to pay extra attention to the battery and have necessary backups to ensure that the video cameras work all the time. A copy of the backup battery and equipment guide is always accessible for reference.
With expensive equipment and assets in his home, he's not taking any chances. Having small children at home further makes it necessary to secure the home to the optimal level possible. When it comes to security of lives, there really is no option. Be safe rather than be sorry.
