I've just had the off site lockup broken into (third time in five years).

The council are happy to replace the door again, but I am somewhat hacked off with the inability to fit a sunken door stop infront of the up and over door, as I have in the back of the house.

Council has suggested linking a remote sensor to the house alarm (I did not tell them I dont have one, which is unfortunately a requirement of my household insurance !), and so I am asking any member with experience in this field, if there is something on the market that protects a house with front/back door, about seven ground floor windows, and can be used to run a remote (wireless ) sensor about 100m away.

I dont need it to call the police - not that I would want to upset them on their tea break.

Total cost of equipment should be in the £1k region, and something I can fit myself.

If I had my own way it would be boiling oil , bear traps and pirahnas in the moat, but in the PC world I live in I would have to pay out the claim should the burglar sue as the insurance cover stops at deterrents

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, the problem is I would have to know when it went off, and arm /disable it remotely, as plod and the locals would not like one going off without some management.

I am checking on the Yale version next week, will let you know if it does the job.

Not so much what's gone (car parts, a reel of mains cable and some PC bits), but the hassle of getting the door repaired, and the toerags now know what is still in there.

Things like this make you support the secondary police force, or a local vigilante system (Neighbourhood watch, with baseball bats).

There is also Motorola versions I seen in PC world over here. My mate installs hi tech alarms for banks etc, I will ask him if he can suggest something for you.

Additionally, a good baby alarm helps you to hear when someone is trying to break in, not sure they will work on such a distance. Is a cheap and reliable defence for a remote garage I read somewhere.
