Tattletale Alarm System

Does anyone have any experience with the "Tattletale Alarm System"? I came across this system when I was looking for a way to know my motorhome is secure while in storage.

Thanks

I have one. It sends me a txt once a week to remind me it's still working. You have to subscribe at some level to maintain the service. It works based on motion (at least the main unit, there are accessories) and opening the door, entering the RV will definitely set it off. It has some level of battery backup as well, will send a txt when loss of power occurs I believe. It requires a cell tower signal as that is its means of communication. No cell tower, no alarms.

SimpliSafe is another similar unit. I don't have any firsthand experience to share.

Thank you for the information. How do you provide power to your alarm unit when it's in storage? Do you have a solar system?

It's always plugged in, so it's not an issue for me.

I just installed a Simplisafe system in the pole building where I store my motorhome.
It comes OE with T-Mobile which has no/weak signal in my area.
SS noticed their weekly test signals were not being received and contacted me in which they then sent a Verizon card to install. Has worked flawlessly ever since.

Monitoring service is $14.99/month.

That SimpliSafe alarm system is nice.

The base station also has back up batteries. System is completely wireless
so its a DIY install.

It contacts the owner and the alarm company via cellular. No phone line needed.

I hear they are about to add video camera too.


There is no doubt better systems out there but, for the price, SimpliSafe is not bad.


We use them on rental houses, etc. Think I'll add one more to coach.
