Shop / outbuilding security alarm suggestions

guy_in_newhouseJuly 25, 2012


My shop and another outbuilding was broken into last night. Some things are missing, but it could have been much worse.

Does anyone know if an alarm system exists that meets the following:


>I can mount the magnetic door sensors on each building service door that triggers a LOUD horn in the building when the contact is broken

>when the contact is broken it sends a signal that triggers an audible alarm inside the house (100 feet away)

>runs off batteries or 120V

I don't need it to call anyone or have a battery backup.

Basically, if anyone enters a building while the alarm is armed (at night typically) I'll hear a signal in the house & I can handle things from that "batter up!", a pistol, or calling the cops...thx..

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

i think when the thief want to steal things from your house, the alarm can call anyone.
