I would get some surveillance software to keep an eye on your stuff while you're gone. I use this open source program, it's free and it works great. Takes a short video clip whenever movement is detected and saves the clips for later viewing. I have it connected to a $20 webcam.

Supposedly you can have the program upload the saved video clips to the cloud, in case the computer itself is stolen, but I have not gotten that adventurous yet. I think if you have the program running on an old desktop computer sitting in the corner, it would likely go unnoticed, especially if the computer screen is locked, and the webcam reasonably well hidden.

I doubt people steal old desktop computers much these days, or that's my hope anyway. You can connect multiple webcams if you want, I love this software, it's the best freeware I have found in quite some time.
