    UNDEFEATED ALARM-REMOTE PAGER-INTERCOM DIY PLANS

    INNOVATIVE UNDEFEATED DIY BIKE/CAR LOCK-ALARM-INTERCOM PLANS FOR SALE

    ALSO FOR A SCOOTER, MOTORCYCLE OR MOPED

    WHY SPEND $300+ ON A VEHICLE ALARM?


    WHAT IS FOR SALE?
    Detailed plans, material list, on how to assemble a device that will:
    inform you that your ‘cycle or car has been tampered with; and,
    allow you to hear what is happening to your bike/car; and,
    depending on your component choice, a programmable warn-away feature;
    and,
    two-way voice communication allows you to warn a thief that police is
    coming.

    Think of it as a "baby monitor" motion-sensing alarm for your car,
    bike, motorbike, or motorcycle.



    WHY BUILD THIS DEVICE?
    You park/commute in a risky or tough area
    You don't want to be disappointed with your insurer's blue-book
    replacement value after the theft
    You want to avoid the feeling of being violated when a bike is stolen


    SUMMARY OF ADVANTAGES:
    Peace of Mind
    Pages you when bike (or anything else attached to it) is moved
    Programmable sensitivity
    Wireless, with practical ¼-mile range or more
    Full cost to build: Only $60-$140
    Two-way voice communication
    No soldering or wiring necessary (unless you want to hard-wire to your
    vehicle's battery)
    Distinguish false alarm instantly
    Weights under 2 lbs.
    Complements a U-lock or disc lock perfectly



    REQUIREMENTS:
    A budget of at least $60 to buy the necessary components
    For bicycles: A pannier or under-the-saddle tool bag
    For motorcycles: A small "shoe-space" enough for the device to be
    hidden



    MY STORY:
    I've been a bike/moped commuter for three years, parking my ‘cycles
    downtown, and in our eastside apartment basement. Most people like me
    lose one bike a year. I've owned four bikes costing $600-$1,200 each,
    since 1999, and haven't lost one yet because of this Do-It-Yourself
    "lock-alarm-intercom."

    The last attempt on my bikes was at one 1:30am where thieves took a
    tarp off, triggered the motion-sensor, continued on to remove
    accessories. Apparently, they were not deterred from a 120dB alarm,
    because they knew sound wouldn't travel far underground, in that
    basement. However, they ran off when my voice from the bike boomed,
    "Hey you down there! The police has been called! I'm coming down right
    now! Yyou're gonna' be in trouble!" When I arrived in the basement,
    the thieves had dropped everything. Nothing had been stolen from my
    four bikes and two bike trailers loaded with nutri-bars and spare
    tubes. These thieves thought they were prepared for everthing, but
    didn't expect a ‘talking bike.' Now, this is high-tech protection!

    With the poverty out there, drug-addiction, and cuts to welfare, it is
    unfortunate that some have to resort to crime. However, my
    military-man father taught me that it is wiser to prevent crime than
    have to ‘close the barn door' after the crime's been committed.

    I believe I have managed to cobble together a proven "device" that
    prevents bike theft. Gone is the ‘Steal Me' sign on my bikes.

    I also tested my device by leaving an unlocked moped in a rough,
    downtown, eastside street for 20 minutes. My bike was also left
    outside a grocery in a tough neighborhood where I watched ‘hoods'
    looking intently at the electronics. They didn't touch the bike
    probably because the "device" looked unfamiliar.

    One benefit for me personally is the peace of mind that I know exactly
    what is happening to the bike. I can hear what's going on.

    One morning, a neighbor locked herself in the building basement locker
    and hollered for help. My device ‘heard' her and I was able to advise
    her, remotely, that I was on my way to help her open the jammed door
    lock.

    I haven't found anything similar to my device, for sale, on the
    Internet yet. If you have one or more special bikes that you don't
    want stolen, you'll want the plans for this device.

    If you are looking for an "undefeated" remote pager system, look no
    further. In my opinion, its better than a Kryptonite New York lock. My
    DIY device is also better than a Compustar, Clifford Viper, Python
    880XP, Armed Guard model 200P, Lynx 2000, Hornet 554T because these
    products are only one-way; whereas, my DIY device is a "two-way" voice
    communication device/alarm.


    PAYMENT & SHIPPING INFORMATION: PayPal and Money Orders accepted.
    Plan is emailed as TIF (graphic) file attachments upon receipt of
    payment.
     
  2. Sounds like this could replace the Loxxon for home use as well as well.
