When buying a motorhome they are a very large investment most of these start from £38.000 and that is just for a base model, An alarm and immobiliser gives you total piece of mind when parking and leaving your second home, These alarms can also be armed when you are inside the vehicle at night giving the best security while your sleeping. Most motorhome security systems meet the Thatcham standard’s but also have extra sensors to protect the side entry door and extra reed contacts for side lockers where your items are stored. A PIR detection sensor can also be added to sense any movement and trigger the alarm, These sensors are normally wireless which means they have a small cell battery inside like a CR2032 these last for around 2 years depending on how much the sensor is triggered.
If the motorhome is stolen with the vehicles keys it is wise to have a stolen vehicle recovery tracker installed. These are Thatcham approved and may lower your insurance by a small amount each year, The advantage of having a tracking system installed is the police will know the location of the motorhome and recover the vehicle for you once the tracking headoffice have been alerted.
