Keeping yourself and your family safe these days can be a real problem for a lot of people. Some people have guns. Many people use guard dogs, but these can be easily bypassed by an experienced and determind intruder. All you have to do is feed the dog some meat laced with some sort of sedative and it'll fall asleep while you are being robbed. Zombie's wouldn't have this problem. They only eat human flesh so wouldn't be distracted by other things and unlike a dog, if you don't feed it then it still won't die. Cheap and effective. If it did catch and bite a thief then they would become a zombie too, thus doubling your security for no extra cost. Also, at the end of the day try and think like a thief. Would you rob the house with the zombies or the house without the zombies?

       any self-respecting thief can out-run and out-smart a zombie. Do you buy one from zombies-R-us?

       They may not die if you don't feed them, but they get weaker and weaker. They are also not noted for their observational powers or quick wits. Zombie have their place in the army or security forces for certain duties, such as ceremonial parading, but as sentries they leave a lot to be desired.

       How are you going to get a Zombie? Also, this is a staple of games such a resident evil and other of that ilk.

       How about games such as thief - the dark project, which proved that the zombies are not as good as guards with big heavy hammers....

       And, once a few guys try and get in, most criminals are going to realize that there are zombies guarding your house. Then your going to be their next meal.

       Then they'll just bring a gun. Besides, once they have killed one guy, the police will arrest them, and then starve them to a state of weakness, and stack 'em in a cupboard.

       "Would you rob the house with the zombies or the house without the zombies?"   

       I'd rob the house with the Zombies. It must have something REALLY valuable inside to go to all the trouble of empowering Zombies for protection.

       Enterprising criminals will no doubt train zombies to do the robbing. Everyone knows zombies dont eat other zombies (as evidenced by the elevator scene in Dawn of the Dead). The robber zombie would just walk in and out unhindered by the guards.
