Car/driveway security, alert and monitoring
I run a Stolen Land Rover Monitoring Website, called LandyWatch - www.landywatch.co.uk - and we are looking for different ideas for securing our vehicles.
As you may know, the Land Rover Defender in particular is a very common vehicle to be stolen, due to the simplicity of the vehicle, its value, ease of stripping the vehicle down to parts for selling, and being shipped abroad.
Currently, we are experiencing an epidemic in the Sheffield area, and we are aware of around 30 that have been stolen in the last few weeks.
I was thinking that with us on here being technically minded and experienced in all sorts of different areas, we may be able to get some ideas from you guys of what we could possibly do to make our vehicles more secure.
Currently we reccomend the Disklok for the steering wheel parked on full lock, pedal locks, roof markings, security etching etc.
Is there any ideas you have for cheap and simple security systems, that you may have used, or ideas you may have on how we could make our vehicles more secure.
Ways to alert the owner if their is someone poking around the vehicle
Methods to scare them off
Stuff like that.
Anything you can think of would be a great help.
