Ummm... I'm not trying to sound rude... but is there a point to this post? Were you wanting to start a buggin' in discussion, have someone try to evaluate risks still remaining (like no cameras on the sides..., or questioning where the camera feeds are..., or asking about access/egress to the basement.... ). Or... since you mentioned you are fully stocked, did you want to share your address so we know where to shop for supplies after SHTF? :) Just trying to figure this one out.

Lemme see what we have here. You live somewhere in New Jersey near the NJ Shore. You have a house that has a basement, which is where everyone and their cousins all store their extra food. You have cameras in the front and back of your house. You equate a basement with a wooden (as in flammable) ceiling with a bunker. Gun control state. Wannabe and real thugs.

Security assessment = you will be able to sit in your basement next to your food and watch the looters come swarming in unopposed into your house upstairs. Or they will see your cameras, disable them or aim them at the sky with a tree branch, and you will be a sitting duck staring at a blank screen with a nice view of the stars or clouds, waiting to be overwhelmed. Rethink time.

ask and you shall revieve :)
i found in my business and in my life a while back i never asked specific questions and never got specific answers. i also never noted whats inportant to me to refine my search for answers and kinda just groped a round in the dark all frustrated. i started with my end goal what do i think it should be and starte dasking questions how to get there and what other things i should consider...

what are your goals for your basesment. what purpose would you like it to serve for you? where are you at now with your basement transformation in reference to your goal ?
have you gone on youtube to look at videos of other peoples basements to start forming an endresult youd like to see in your place?

And the molotovs.....
but the fire sprinklers will extinguish those.....
the mine field will deteriorate foot traffic threats....
the drones.....controlled by the laptop [isolated] will
seek and nullify any aerial advancement.....

I gotta 60 story underground bunker with a 25 year supply of food and 50 exotic dancers all under 21 that want to keep me company and worship me.....My camera is broke

DUH!
But by the time you will need to retreat to your bunker.....
the ladies will be much, much older......and have formed a coalition
of their own......with demands that you will not be able to meet !!!!!
Cougars are HELL on an old man......I don't see 'survival' in your future !! :):):)

Best way Ive heard explained about food/supply prepping is start with 3day supply/14 day supply/30 day supply/3 month....etc. Having a rounded supply at each stage is crucial for Bugging In. As in what good is it have 2 years of food and toothpaste if you only have 3 days of water. Of course theres no absolutes but thats what I use when I "shop".
