Healthy paranoia or something else?

My sister is one who is very paranoid. She makes sure that the doors are locked, even checking twice or thrice. She makes it a point to wake up at 3am, baseball bat in hand and goes around the house to check if someone is there and rechecks the locks and the gas. And then she gets out of bed again at 6am to do the same thing.

She also does this outside her home. She installed cameras around the house which she could access via her phone.

I know that we all can't be too careful but is this still healty paranoia, as she claims it is?

Actually, if you are worried she's suffering from paranoid personality disorder, from what I know of the disease, she could be.  That long-standing suspiciousness is one major characteristics of the disorder.

We need to know more in order to comment. It could be healthy paranoia in that sense, but if she's also exhibiting other indicators like being hypersensitive to setbacks, or she has a tendency to bear grudges for a long time... then she could be suffering from paranoid personality disorder.

Is she conspiratory??? I mean does she think everything that happens to her or to other people might be the result of some conspiracy?  If so, then she's a good candidate.
