    Bought myself a chepo movement sensor built in alarm from lidl yesterday for £4.99.
    Now it's setup in the back of the van and seems to works a treat.:)

    So now when I'm out of site from the van whilst working with all the doors locked apart from the side door that I have to leave open a wee bit for the hose etc anyone that tries to nick stuff out the back of the van I will know about it. That's if I remember to turn it on :D

    How many db smurf?

    I was thinking about van security a lot yesterday, I kept checking all the locks and my keys every five minutes like I'd just escaped a mental health unit...

    I've also got the bad habit of leaving all my pricey gear in the van overnight parked on the road :-(

    Will check that out, sounds good, or rather bad when it goes off. Let's hope Frank didn't build em for that price ;-)

    The motion detection sensor covers all the inside of the back of the van so as soon as someone opens the doors including the side door which is normaly left open a wee bit it will go off. All be it after 15 ish second delay once triggered but it's better than nothing.
