    Garage Burglar Alarm - Advice Wanted

    I need some advice on what is best for a garage burglar alarm.

    My garage is 9 meters wide by 25 meters long, very large garage, it has one up-and-over metal front door and a solid oak side door.

    What I would like is a complete separate wireless unit for my garage, ie alarm panel, sensors, bell box, etc, etc.

    Does anyone have any experience of sensors in a garage? My concern is that if I use PIR type sensors they will keep going off due to the door rattling or a spider moving or do they make specific sensors for garages?

    Any help or advice would be appreciated.

    Hi i installed a full system in my garage 2 years ago (panel,door switches,smoke alarm etc) the pir,s i used were micro x these are both pir & infra red (can set to either,orboth) mine are set so they have to be activated by both.No problems in the 2 years i,ve had them fitted.The smoke alarm is fitted but only arms when the doors are closed and the alarm is in set mode(stops false alarms when welding,grinding etc)Also i have a dialler in the system which will ring me and let me know if there is an activation.Not the cheapest system but a good solid security alarm without worries of false alarms etc.
    regards

    Garage Burglar Alarm - Advice Wanted

    I appreciate that this is feck all use in direct answer to the OP, but I recently reviewed garage security to protect my dive gear.

    After seeking advice from various knowledgable folk I focused on preventing entry rather than beefing up the alarm as alarms get ignored. I went for a 'garage defender'. It's a right nasty bastard to defeat as it prevents the lock from being attacked and it's cemented into the ground.

    Wasn't too much money either. The garage is alarmed as well. Belt and braces and all that.
