Thats a real bummer Steve,we had a break in around Xmas albeit into the yard,so i can sympathies with your situation. You must be a very trusting person not to have an alarm till now. we have digital round the clock cctv(two static and one pan & zoom cameras) and a red care (gps)alarm system but still to my horror one Sunday morning i turned up to find one of the main gates (welded scaffold type tube & chain link affair 8 foot high) had been rammed through using a car from inside the compound.I had to double take,i was choked as you must be now. I had to watch the b******s on film ram the gate 3 times with an employees (thankfully) beloved mark one calibra to get it out. Must have been kids after the wheels cos it was found burnt in Luton a few days later.Mind you ,it took another 5 days for the recovery company to tell us it was in storage in there yard.You can imagine the bill. Cost us around £3500 in total what with replacing the car etc. This may sound a bit extreme but now that the village has recently been upgraded to broadband i have the hardware to view the site and operate the cameras from my lap top at home.I am negotiating a deal with an isp for a permanent address.My online DVR can facilitate outside motion sensors aswell that are due to be installed.The idea is that if a sensor is disturbed, the camera will pan & zoom to that area,also an audible tone will be heard on my lap top.Sounds overkill i know, but with a quarter acre site with up to 30 customers cars present at any one time-we are highly vulnerable to intrusion & i really really could do without being caught out again.The techno is there,might as well use it.
