I've used a small fence charger to secure a car in my yard. It was
amazing how many kids knew that! Such devices may not be legal where you
live. They are safer, mostly, than running line voltage and current.

The house power can be deadly and if you kill or injure someone, you
can be charged with a crime. I you want to electrically deter someone,
I suggest an electric fence charger. The power is current limited and
not considered lethal although painful.
Or an IED. He could blame it on the Muslims.
I would recommend a bazooka. Just go out in the back yard when the
neighbor is out there and tell him to stand close behind you while you
test the weapon. The neighbor dies in the accident. Problem solved.

There have been many cases where someone was injured by a boobie trap,

setting the trap was charged with a crime.
What if police, fire, or EMTs used those windows to get into your house
in an emergency?
not only have people been killed by this sort of booby trap,the owner often
gets nailed by their own trap.
FELONY crime;manslaughter. good for several years of prison.
the BEST idea is to get one of those digital cameras made for hunters,that
strap to a tree,and use an IR flash to capture whatever breaks the
motion sensor's field of view. Then you have credible evidence of exactly
who did the vandalism/break-in,and police can use it to arrest and convict
them. It's also good for a civil lawsuit,to collect damages.
They are sold at sporting goods stores.
Or you could use a wireless webcam connected to your PC. there are several
security cams made,with SW that makes the camera act as a motion
sensor,records to harddisk when the image changes. you need one that has an
integral IR light source.you can even buy them at WalMart.
An Alarm Co. like Slomin Shield or ADT would be best.
Or go with the best solution here, hide cameras pointed at the exposed
windows, and get them on video inside your property.....Good
luck....I'd bait them and wait for them inside right next to the
windows with a phone and a bat.
