    and you have a smartphone, you could always pick up an IP cam for @ 80.00.  Cameras in this price range come with infrared, sound (both hearing and speaking), and the ability to take motion capture snapshots and email them to you.  If you set up a specific address just for the camera's emails, then all you have to do is a quick check of that email from your phone before you come back and enter an empty house.

    You could also leave the camera monitor running on a pc while you're in the house to provide a decent "burglar alarm" as well.  Most of them will provide a good loud beep when the motion alarm goes off.

    If I were nervous about returning to an empty house after a burglary, I think this is what I'd do.
