It depends on how far you want to go and how paranoid you are.
You have the choice of alarms both monitored and not, cameras, gated access, security screens on doors and windows, a big dog, etc. It'd be easier to advise you if you gave us an idea of what you're interested in.

Modern day security systems can be tied into smart home devices like thermostats, locks, and lights. All kinds of varieties are available from wired to wireless which would ensure round the clock monitoring through smart phones.
Take help form review sites for brands which might suit your requirements.

Smart Home Security is the thing. You can protect, control and monitor your home through your mobile phone. You can arm/disarm the alarm system, get alerts and notifications on your mobile like if any door is opened or left opened. You can set alerts to get notified when your kids are home. You have the option of self-monitoring or back to base monitoring 24/7.

there are things that you can do without spending a fortune, first is keep your house clear of bushes and items that a crooks can hide behind.
Second do not leave doors or windows open or unlocked, close all window coverings when leaving the premises.
If you want to spend money then I suggest firstly get a light sensor to turn on the external lights at night.
next would be a reasonable alarm system, my suggestion is the Alliance made by hills, third is to get some decent IP cameras and have the data stored in the cloud with a sign out the front indicating so.
I would steer clear of home automation at the moment unless you wish to spend a fortune or want to do the wireless thing which is fraught with problems.
if I can be of further help let me know.
all the best, Peter
