Thatcham Motorhome Alarm Fitted

We can supply the Autowatch 695 Thatcham motorhome alarm fitted with reed switches for habitation doors. This is necessary if the alarm is being fitted for Insurance purposes, as all points of entry to the vehicle must be protected if the system is to maintain Thatcham Approval. A wireless reed switch provides a permanent contact between the door and the frame, triggering the alarm if the door is opened and the contact is broken. Our wireless reed switches, allow this function to be provided without disturbing the interior build of the vehicle, although customers should be aware that they are battery operated and we suggest batteries are renewed each year.

Wirless PIR Sensor for MotorhomeThe wireless PIR is an optional extra for the living area or the motorhome. The main alarm uses ultrasonic fitted in the front cabin area. These send and receive a signal, while armed, and any obstruction interfering with this process triggers the alarm. A PIR boosts this are of protection into the main interior of the motorhome. Depending on the vehicle, it may be possible to temporarily disable these sensors and put the system into 'pet mode'. Read more on this from our main Autowatch 695-page link below.

Customers also have the option of buying a dedicated remote for the alarm. This may be useful if customers only have one full button remote when the vehicle was purchased. This is becoming more common as manufacturers cut costs and supply one full remote and one back-up key. In this instance a second alarm remote is useful so that if the original full button remote is lost or broken, the alarm can be disable with the alarm remote and the vehicle opened and driven by the back-up key.
