Extra remote motion detectors are about $50.

With a 1200 foot range on those sensors you could be out on the lawn chair, ready to greet them, Jimmini!

Arizona and California .But stealing of the quiet type Generators like Honda 2000 is on the rise in all the west.Do not know about the rest of U.S.
There are a lot of people out there that are willing to buy "USED GENERATORS". Many of the them not used by the seller.
If you notice more and more campgrounds are posting notices about this problem to warn you to take care of you generator.

Went to Radio Shack found out that this detector is a beam ,not 120 degreese.Part of sales paper work sead 120 degrease but salesman sead this is wrong.He set one up to prove it.
So now back to square one, still looking.

Rivet Security System

Hi Jimmini,

Check out The Revolutionary Security System :: Videofied Manufactured by RSIalarm. They have a very interesting product that includes a true security system. An option is to have a mpeg of the scene emailed to the owner and the local police depart upon activation of the alarm.

Hi
I lost one of mine at Canyon Point campground AZ this month.All the campground in that area have posted notices the last few years to lock your generators (mine was).All the campgrounds around Woods canyon lake,bear canyon lake,Knole canyon lake,Willow spings Lake have notices .This is on the Mogollon Rim East of Payson AZ.Also the Campgrounds around Williams AZ like Kaibab Lake,Dog Towen lake,White Horse lake all have notice with description of a person that is doing it in that area.I had someone try an get mine at the Palm campground at Borreggo Spings campground in CA.This has also been a problem round the big winter get' togeather around Quartzsite AZ and Imperial Dam CA area the last two or three years. It is so bad in some places like Aspen and Spillway camp grounds that deputy sheriffs will walk the camp sites in the evening to tell people to put there generators away.I think canyon point had 4 theifs of 5 generators this year.
I also had one stolen out of my locked truck in a "good neighborhood" while it was parked in my driveway.
They seam to have no problem selling them since alot of fokes like to buy cheap "USED GENERATORS" most of the time NOT USED by the seller.
All I can say, it sure takes the fun out of camping , But I am not going to let some asshole stop me.
As I have sead, I now have mine mounted on a plate that I park the trailer tire on then put an Alarm-it cable thru the wheel.Now I want a motion detector that is self powerd with an alarm built in to stop them before they can get to the generator .
Note my dog did wake up and bark at Barraggo Spring,but did not at the one taken at my house and was not with me the last time.
Just remember a quite generator can be a gone generator.I evan heard of one that was pluged in an running when it was stolen.

Just remember that those security systems are really stupid, can't tell the difference between a thief and the animals running around at night!

This looks like nice unit BUT motion sensors are for indoors use only.

I saw a photo of a pole mound camera, I think, in Security Products (Security Products) in July, but I am unable to find the old issue. Youíre right; I canít find an outdoor camera on their website. That might have been a prototype.

Could have sworn I saw an outdoor camera.

Rivet Outdoor VIA-Pro Camera

After my last post, I went to their website and sent them a request. I just got the following response from Keith Jentoft, the president of RSIalarm. I located the July edition of Security Products. The VIA-Pro was the feature of a full page Product Spotlight because it was chosen as the best new produce at the ISC West trade show in Las Vegas.
Re: There has been a thread (http://www.airforums. com/forums/f317/rv- outdoors-security- system-36628- 2.html#post461429) on the Airstream Owners' Forum about RV security products. An owner is searching for an external mount camera. Do you have plans for an external mount VIA-Pro camera?

Vaughan,

We have an weather-proof outdoor camera coming out the end of this year. It will operate from -20F to over +130F. It has a threaded nut in the rear to attach to a gimbal mount. I have attached a photo for you. It has an integrated:
- PIR motion sensor
- Video Camera
- Infrared illuminators

It is battery powered and totally wireless.

While the camera will operate outside, installation will dictate how it performs. The motion sensor is not designed to look at moving bushes, etc and not trip. It will do a great job at looking at something like a truck be where there is not supposed to be any background movement. People plan on using it to secure storage trailers, power substations, and other infrastructure.

Thank you

I appreciate such a quick response from the company president.

The current one I have needs to be mounted high enough to just sense the 2 legged animals. I'm going to try the Reporter - they claim to have focused the sensor wide and flat to reduce animal triggers - small animals anyway
