shed alarm

Hi

thinking of getting a shed alarm to use on the bike, anybody got any recommendations.
Don't want to cut up the harness or risk flattening the battery so a stand alone tilt sensor alarm would appear to be the obvious solution.
Thoughts, anyone?

You get what you pay for with alarms if it simple to fit its simple to remove

True enough, but you can spend a fortune on the best alarm going and it can still get nicked if someone just throws it in the back off a van and drives off with the alarm blaring away...

If they've got the seat up to take the alarm out, they've already nicked it - once i've got round to fitting a padlock to the seat lock at least, or just chain it through the wheel..

I just want a warning when it's being fiddled with. And I don't want to cut the wiring or risk a flat battery

Try looking around for a bicycle alarm, they're not expensive, and can be modified to suit the siruation, plus they're stand alone. If an alarm has an exit/setup delay, it can be fitted to the door. Also, a personal attack alarm can be used, many of them are "grenade pin" operation, when the pin is pulled out, the alarm will sound until the pin is put back in again, or until the battery goes flat, and some of them are very loud. Anchor the alarm body somewhere on your bike (preferrably not obvious), and use a cord to anchor the pin to a fixed object. Fishing twine is handy here, as it's not immediately obvious, or a bit of strong (synthetic, not cotton) sewing thread, of a colour that blends into the background.

Nacho was the best alarm i ever had...next best is baby monitor set...1 on bedside table,1 in garage...you can hear a mouse fart,they're cheap too....gives you the option of call police or find lead pipe/baseball bat...Roz and i bought 4 or 5 cheapie £5.99 ones off Ebay with mercury switches...sensitive enough for strong gust of wind to start it wailing,small enough to hide on bike under tank or seat...

I don't think there's room under the seat for a landshark, i'll take a look at the other options though.
Cheers!
