I see how in a semi rural area my advice would not fly. I live in a fairly low crime area where our homes are fairly close together. Someone messing around under the lights would be seen by one of the neighbors.I wonder about that. I live in a semi rural area large lots in our area 1-3 acre in size. A few years ago our car and truck were burgeralized. I had walk lights and some overhead led rope lights in the carport since often being called out at night I did not like to get out in the dark to get back to the house. I had a gun and a small bag with a bunch of chargers and cords for iphone, kindles, ect stolen. Sheriffs dept told me a lot of vehicles were being burgeralized. A neighbor had placed his wallet and credit card stolen from a work truck and went back into his house for something, came back and it was gone. Less than an hour later something had been charged at McDonalds, then apparently they were smart and discarded it after one use. I had the serial number and model of the gun recorded and sheriffs deputy said most people did not and that if it was recovered I would get it back, Thats been 4 years ago not and no word on it, not that I would want it back at this point. It was one of the big Para Ordnance LDA(light double action) semi autos, so I think if they tried to take it apart without proper instructions it would be rendered useless.
