You probably have seen laser security systems in a lot of movies. They're dramatic, but in the real world its much more effective, easier, and less expensive to monitor IR light and sound the alarms when it changes rapidly. That's how most motion detectors work.

I would NOT recommend UV, with a laser you can't actually see it through the air unless there's a lot of dust / fog / smoke, and only at night time. UV can be dangerous because you don't know when it's on, and you don't know where it's pointing.

Hmm... drawbacks...
Pets and wildlife, but it depends on where you put it.

Power could be a problem but shouldn't be if you have a power adaptor power plug. Pretty small and gives constant power. But if black outs are a problem....

You'd have to give more specific details for more info.

Depends on the exact system, and exactly how it is installed. There is no simple answer.
