Which Security Alarm System?

Inquiring what security alarm systems owners have installed on their boats. Of course no specific details required, just manufacturer suggestions.

Thanks,

Darren

I am currently interested in equipment from Flagship Marine Security. It looks marinised enough with features relevant to a boat.

We got a D cell battery operated alarm with wireless motion detector
Cost about $50?
We stick it up near the door way with velcro. 120Db and a flashing light. Buggered if I know who it would scare most, us or the crooks!

Has a remote switch to turn it on/off.

For the tropics we got a new cockpit companionway door - below. We use it when ever we are out blissfully cool boat on our return. We could lock ourselves in at night too.

A fellow I know makes a simple system that activates using fishing line as a trip wire. Very loud, lights flashing etc.. Shuts down after preprogramed time. Battery operated. Long batter life since most of its time is just idle. With his permission I am posting his contact information.
