Fences, lighting, and cameras are all great, and likely necessary to secure the property. A big dog or two are good deterrents except for those slow learners. I would rely on the formers and keep the dogs inside until you gauge what legal liabilities you may face if a dog chewed on a trespasser in the dark. It seems like the criminals are better at generating sympathy than the victims currently.
