I'm not familiar with what is out there, but could you rig a beam type detector (I originally was thinking vinyl fence, but I see you have a wooden one) to break the beam from one corner to the next. Doesn't sound real clean though, nor very covert.hgupta1 said:Whoever is coming onto the property is hopping over the 6 foot wooden privacy fence: has anyone ever tried to rig up something to detect when a fence is hopped over?
TCassio, I like that motion detector. Thats the kind I was looking for. I wonder if it can be connected to my security system or homeseer.nsisman said:I used a ds10 in my shed with the wgl800 antenna (about 125 feet from the house) and HS played an alarm sound in the house whenever the shed was opened. This worked well. Same deal with the garage doors and the cars.
Now we have a Yorkie (slightly louder than any siren ever built) who lets us know if anyone is outside messing around. A few years ago she let us know about kids in the neighbour's car at 2:30 am !
First the alarm sound goes off and then the Yorkie goes off !
Why not wait for the alarm to go and then send the two shepherds out to investigate ?
