Due to the implications of Covid-19, motorhomes and caravans have become increasingly popular! If you’ve been away much over the past couple of years, you may have found yourself on a UK staycation like so many other families.

Whilst you’re away in a motorhome or caravan, you need to be confident that you and your family are safe and secure.

Whether it’s for while you’re out and about during the day or sleeping at night, it’s important that you feel safe, and that no one can enter the caravan without you being made aware.

An alarm system is a great way to do just that. Find out more below:

Which Motorhome Alarm System Is Best for Me?

A popular choice for motorhome alarm systems is the Ajax Wireless System.

These systems come in a range of specifications, so you can pick the one best suited to your requirements.

The first and most obvious choices to opt for are the Indoor and Outdoor Sirens. These sirens pick up on any disturbance and let off a loud siren to deter anyone trying to enter your caravan. The Outdoor Siren even has a light to attract attention.

The next system is the MotionCam which can be fitted anywhere across your motorhome, and you can have as many as you want to make sure it’s all covered. You can access these cameras at any time, too!

Doors and windows are always going to be a concern for any motorhome owner. If you’re concerned about entry points, then we would recommend the DoorProtect Opening Detector which can again be controlled from your mobile and alerts if opened whilst the device is switched on.

With any Ajax system, you will probably want to get the Control Hub 2 and Keypad. This means you can easily control the different modes and link all of your devices together.

What Are the Benefits of the Ajax Motorhome Alarm System?

Tamper Proof

As each system is wireless, an intruder can just stop the system at the source. They are also fitted with sensors and will alert if a device is moved from its securing bracket.

Don’t Require Wi-Fi

Something you need to consider when choosing anything for your motorhome is whether it needs wi-fi as this may not always be available. The Ajax systems can run entirely on SIM cards purchased from Ajax.

Easy to Use

Directly manageable from your smartphone. Without all the wires and endless user manuals, you can keep an eye on the security of your motorhome no matter where you are.

Portable

Like with a home or a car, eventually you might want to downsize or upgrade! The Ajax system is easy to transfer from one motorhome or caravan to another. This is also perfect for those renting who are just looking for added security whilst away.

Easy to Install

As Ajax systems run on either wi-fi or SIM cards, you don’t need to be messing about with wires or trying to connect all your devices together. If you purchase from Vistec, we will even install for free!

Use With Other Devices

Some customers opt for CCTV around their motorhome and then upgrade with a security alarm from Ajax. This system can be fully integrated into the existing CCTV or other security devices.

Affordable

As you can buy each system individually, you only need to spend on the systems you really need. It’s all scalable and you can purchase each upgrade as and when you feel you need it.

Modern Look

Even in our motorhomes, we aim for the same aesthetic that we do in our own homes and don’t want wires trailing around. The wireless Ajax systems are sleek and modern to fit in with the décor you choose.

Are There Any Other Security Features I Should Consider for My Motorhome?

  • Wheel Clamps – Wheel clamps are an obvious but sound choice. They physically stop any thieves from being able to drive away with your motorhome or caravan.
  • Dashcams – A dashcam not only protects you and your insurance from any unavoidable incidents but also from other road users. Should you get into an accident, everything is recorded and stored for playback.
  • Tracking Devices – If the worse did happen and someone was able to move your caravan, a tracking device means the exact location is recorded and live tracked and can be passed onto the police.
  • Steering Wheel Locks – As with wheel clamps, a steering wheel lock can make it a lot harder for anyone trying to steal a motorhome. Even seeing this in use on the steering wheel can be a great deterrent.
