When using a door viewer make sure the person on the outside doesn't know you are inside so do not make noise while viewing the outside of your door. Make sure the outside of the door is well lit. Determine whether or not you know the guest knocking on the door. If you don't know who is visiting your home then quietly stay inside and don't answer the door. If you feel that the visitor threatens you then proceed to call law enforcement for backup.
