You might not have the crown jewels stashed in your garden shed, but a thief could use your own spade to prise open a back door or window and burgle your house! You need to protect the contents of your shed as much as your home. Now that we are coming into the beginning of the gardening season, it has to be noted that we are also coming into the season when thefts of gardening tools and equipment escalate. Wycombe District Neighbourhood Watch Association has a number of products to help you;
We can recommend the PIR Sensor Alarm which is a low cost, battery operated alarm with two remote controls and a wall bracket. The alarm has a PIR (passive infra-red) sensor which can detect movement up to 8 metres away and, once activated, will sound a 105 decibel siren which can be quickly armed and disarmed using the handy key fob controllers. Four AA batteries are included, and the alarm is available from us for £10.
There is another excellent alarm designed to protect shed doors against forced entry. It comes with a 4-digit keypad code, entry/exit delay, sensitivity control, 3 AAA batteries and a very loud siren! Price £10.
Neighbourhood Watch also has a new alarmed padlock, with shock and movement sensor, a powerful 110 decibel siren, keyed operation, a battery powered and weather-resistant hardened Zinc Alloy body, hardened shell shackle, anti-muffle design, which costs £14.
Security cables to fasten all your garden tools or bicycles to a fixed post cost £3 each, and bicycle alarms that are sensitive to movement are also available at £11.
