    Shed Security Alarm System


    looking for a simple alarm system for a shed...something like a motion detector that i can plug in inside the shed and have the audible alarm inside the house...maybe a fob to disarm it when i'm already outside so i don't have to go back in the house to disarm...range would have to be 100+ feet for a signal and it would have to be able to handle the cold since the shed won't be heated...anyone have any recommendations?

    do you leave the door open? why not a simple button in the door jam, door opens, alarm sounds, or are there other ways to get inside... or maybe you want to know when rodents are chewing on shit

    Subscribed. We are getting a new shed tomorrow. We have the Arlo cameras, which have a max range of 300 feet. The shed is about 400 feet.

    2 doors (6' wide double doors) and 2 windows...looking for a wireless setup because running wire would be a huge pain in the ass with my setup

    Re: Shed Security Alarm System

    after thinking about it a little more i'm thinking of going 1 of 2 ways...i'm liking option 3 the best right now...

    1
    some type of motion detecting camera system that would alert via cell phone app and i could check into live...i have family that sometimes goes into the shed to borrow things...some of them are fine with technology and some not so much...so something like arlo so i would be able to see who is in there rather than just set off an alarm and have to worry about people having to go in the house to disable i'm just afraid to brick my cell phone by updating from ios 8.3 to 11.0.1

    2
    a motion detector which alarms inside the house at a hub and possibly alerts to a cell phone app and also has fobs to arm/disarm

    3
    basically 1 + 2...motion detector camera + separate motion detector which alarms in house with fobs to arm/disarm just the alarm...the camera will stay live...if there is a camera that can do that then no motion detector necessary

    Re: Shed Security Alarm System

    This topic comes up frequently enough I think I need to start building basic garage/shed alarms. Here's the deal, a REALLY loud fucking noise with make anyone run IMMEDIATELY. Enter your 130 dB electric buzzer. Wire up either a door switch (single entry point) or a motion to a time on delay relay, set delay to 30 seconds. Have a basic kill switch in a discrete location. Anyway, I could set up a pre-wired box with alarm built in and all someone would need to do would be plug it into 120V and wire in the kill switch and detector.
