Saw one a while back. Blinking LEDs in a window. That was all. Who would break in where lights are blinking.

He once said the best system is a 110 pound German Sheperd in the back seat! Mine was a few pounds lighter, but you didn't want to mess with her.

I have recently installed a motion detector in my RV which is parked about 12 feet from the house. The motion detector is tied into our house alarm system.

If a person were to open the door (either one) and walk inside the rig, it'll trip the motion and set off the house alarm system and it'll show up as a separate zone on my alarm panel.

The other day, I set the alarm in the house and we were going to go camping. I forgot about the motion detector in the RV and promptly set off the alarm system and the monitoring company called.

When we go away with the rig, I bring the motion inside the house and place it in a cabinet until we come home.

Aside from my regular monitoring fee, there is no charge for the extra zone.

Our alarm company has a faux 110volt outlet that attaches with an extension cord. If the cord is removed it triggers an alarm. They also do the wireless motion and you can bypass that zone when you leave.

We removed the "porch light" and installed a Magic Lite with motion detector. Easy install and only $60ish bucks. PPL had the best price.

Times are changing, with all the advances in science and technology you can accomplish the same thing today with as little as 30 pounds.

If you're talking about an anti-theft device,...it would be the Ravelco. I have 2 currently in 2 of my vehicles, and have scheduled an appointment for an install in 3 more,...one of which is my Kenworth that I use as my toter. In a nutshell, your vehicle can be broken into, but not stolen. Ravelco Anti Theft Device

If its one thing about my 03 Pace Arrow I don't care for. It is the drivers door that came on some of the late model class A's. Point being, another point of entry!

While camping our security system also has fur and four legs. He is not at all dangerous but will announce anyone coming near the RV.

While parked at the sicks & bricks house we have a couple of these Wireless Driveway Alert & Driveway Alarm System I think next year when we take off for warmer climes I will bring one along to stick inside the toad while we are parked at truck stops, rest areas or Walmart to alert us if anyone opens the door. Since it is a convertible we would rather leave the door open and not risk someone slicing open the top to get in.
