Armed Guard G-Force 300 Electronic Alarm with Perimeter Sensor

Anyone tried one of these? The few reviews are good. Looks like you can set a perimeter setting for as little as 1.5-2 feet, where it will chirp and then go full alarm if someone stays in that space. Curious.

What's it armed with? A .38, 357, or 44? ;-) Sorry to hear about your slit tire on your other post, that sucks... Someone tried to steal our bikes once at our old house, they were shocked to find I have alarm sensors everywhere. If I'd just had it in silent mode the crooks would have been caught.

What does it say on the Alarm as to how much power it drains? Something you'd want to be mindful of is how much of a load it'll put on your battery.

Just got this off their website:

The unit draws 4milliamps of current when in the armed mode. The flashing LED draws another 1milliamps and the perimeter sensor adds another 12milliamps when activated. According to the folks at Armed Guard, they did extensive studies with Yuasa and Kawasaki in 2003 and have determined that the system can be safely left armed for 1-2 weeks with the perimeter sensor activated, and as much as 6 weeks without perimeter sensor activated, and the battery will remain within normal operating range. A battery tender device is recommended for any extended storage.

I have a tender pigtail that's connected to the battery with access on the left side cover of the bike. I don't use the tender very often, but it looks like it would be a good idea when parked at home.

one thing to keep in mind with alarms. Some theives will 'test' the bike. First they will walk by, then they will bumb it and so on. this way they know what to bring next time they come out. If i were you, i would just get something like low jack, or an alarm that will go off when the bike is actually moved, not just lightly bumped. And at the house, get a fake camera (kind that runs on a 9 volt to power the red led), and post signs that there is a Closed Circut camera. I would find this as a more effective deterent.

And there's evil immature people (like me) that'll set alarms off on purpose just to mess with ppl.

I've mostly grown out of it, but there was a time that if there were vehicles I knew had alarms - I'd bump em just enough every time I walked by...

There is nothing like setting off an alarm with your exhaust ;-)

Problem is, I doubt the tire slashing happened at home. It could have, but not nearly as likely as at work or wally world. I know I can't stop a criminal most likely, but I'm hoping to keep mostly pranksters from screwing with my bike. Granted, there will be people who will love to set off the alarm just to screw with me. But with so many kids around in the summer, it would probably keep them from touching it.

I like the fake camera idea especially around the house. I have motion triggered lighting all around the house already.

You're right, you can't stop a thief... A detemined one... You can only slow them down, make alot of racket, and make it difficult for them to steal what you have without someone noticing.

A friend of mine always says, locks only keep honest people honest.

Ya just need a miniature version of the 'Trunk Monkey' that's on a TV commercial.

He just crawls outta the toolbox (or saddlebag) and gives the perpetrator a healthy whack with a tire iron !! LOL
