Cheap Security for Shop truck driveway
« on: December 04, 2011, 12:33:19 pm »
I guess I should tell you guys here about a cheap security I use for shop, driveway and even in the back of your truck with cap.

I use the driveway patrol in my shop and had used them in the driveway and back of truck with cap on while traveling to races.

In shop just set up to detect someone going in or near you stuff.
Back of truck I would set up so if they were grabbing a saw or broke the plain of rear area. Plus when at races and staying in motel you just have your truck close and have sensor alarm part in room with you.
 Driveway just across it.  Must be inside 400 feet of house where you want to here the main section.

I quit using in my driveway for now do to the deer standing in front of it at night and coyotes walking through sensor. Wake up and hit them with spotlight is how I know.

Less then $20 for a peace of mind.

That's a great idea! 8)
-Aaron

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

A big break and enter spree went on around here into garages and sheds so My father put a baby monitor in his garage so he could hear it in the house. If anyone breaks into the garage during the night he will be able to hear them. He also uses a trailcam. Not as good as an alarm in some ways because the trespasser wouldnt hear any alarm and run off but on the other hand you can hear them and go catch them in the act if you are home.
