Looking for a security system for a class A motorhome that will notify me by cell phone if my motorhome door is opened while the alarm is active and I am away.

 

Any thoughts.

Me also! Looking for a system which will switch from Cell and/or Internet to SW (or HF) frequency to notify.
We find us often without Cell coverage and no internet.

Been suggested to rely on Satellite telephone/internet for notifications when out in the boondocks.

Understand it's illegal to boobi-trap the Coach?!?!

My son in law, has a hunting camera that alerts him that it has detected movement and snaps picture, and will record movement, and send it to his cell phone. May not be exactly what you want, but just another idea. Most sporting goods stores will probably be able to help in locating such an item.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will look into that.

If you have a pair of Smart Cell Phones, there is an app that you install on both.  On the one you leave behind, you turn on the phone app and it will detect motion, and call the second phone.  It is a GPS based app.

I own an alarm company and I wired up my class A with alarm with cellular transmitter that sends me a text message to my cell phone.

 

Cost me about $15 a month.

Google Simplisafe. I have the simplisafe installed in my coach and it works well.

Simplisafe looks great! I gather from the web page that one can buy the system, use it to transmit alerts to the cell phone (or sound the alarm), but not subscribe to the monitoring system (at $15/month). Is that right?

 

Thanks,

Skip

Half right....You need to subscribe to have a cell phone alert. No subscription needed for audio alert. I don't have a subscription. I have sensors on all the cargo bay doors,entry door,motion inside coach and installed the optional siren which is extremely loud.
