How far are you from the police, if an alarm is set will they be there in 2 minutes, 20 minutes, or 2 hours?
Bump proof locks are always a good idea because anyone can get bump equipment over the internet.
The best deterrent as far as I can see is to have a system that sounds a loud alarm and turns on all the lights. Thieves are like cockroaches they don't like light.

A Smith and Wesson 357 is also very helpful.
