Keep a check on everything at home. Install home entry products to secure your entry points like keyless door and smart doorbell cameras.
Make use of smart lights You can stay safe if you make your home look occupied.
Don’t forget to install modern security cameras in your garage, near your shed, lawn, swimming pool area, deck, driveway and backyard etc.

I agree on the security cameras. I didn't even think of it as turning my home "smart", it's more like prioritizing our home's safety. Ours is an arlo pro and has two way audio, with mobile app. I find it a bit expensive but I think security cameras usually have good deals during black friday, you can check that out if you want. What I don't like much about it though is the batteries. Now, we re-charge every month, which is way too soon compared to its 4months duration previously.

In my opinion, smart camera is one of the most important devices to secure outdoor areas. Besides, you may need different sensors that help you detect motion, vibration and sound. I suggest Xiaomi and Aqara (good quality at low price, that's why I chose). The brands have a whole home automation system. You don't have to use those inconvenient third part platforms to control.

In the house, an excellent and simplest solution would be to install sensors on the doors, windows and the meter. But with open space everything is a bit more complicated, the only right decision would be to install surveillance cameras.

Motion sensors and cameras are the best options.

Generally, I have an actual video safety system that I have hooked up to a laptop monitor and wirelessly to my phone. It’s really cool to be able to look on my phone to see what’s going on all over my area. Also, I have a doorbell security camera if I can talk to someone that rings it. These device are really helpful.

The security system including motion sensor, alarm siren, security camera, door/window sensor is must-have.
Here's the brands I suggest:

I do not agree with installing motion sensors outside. Because it will make false alarm often when somebody or animals go by. You can install a outside security camera.
