Campervan Alarm Systems

Worried about security on the road? These alarm systems mean you can travel confidently to remote areas, go for long hikes and spend hours on the beach without the stress that your home on the road will be compromised.

WiTi Anti-Theft Alarm

Features

Specifically designed for campervans.

Detects movement from outside the van by its sensitive gyroscope (a device used for measuring movement).

There’re two types of movement it detects, firstly acceleration as if someone has hitched up and is trying to move the van and secondly, sharp knocks or bumps as trying to hitch up or break into the van.

After 30 seconds of movement or forced entry the alarm of 105db will go off and will repeat until the movement stops.

The system also triggers your vehicle lights to flash and applies brakes for over 30 seconds to ensure your campervan does not move. This continues as long as movement is detected.

Entry through doors or windows will also set off alarm/security system.

The only anti-theft system that immobilises your campervan! Once parked, you can turn on the system by pressing the button on the key fob again. The brakes will only activate if the alarm is triggered and movement is detected.

Price

The WiTi Anti-Theft costs $499 (this includes WiTi Anti-Theft unit with two remote controls and horn).


Installation

The unit must be installed vertically and facing either the front or rear of the campervan.

WiTi uses gravity to initialise the Gyroscope and detects acceleration in the direction of travel.

It’s recommended the WiTi is installed onto an exterior body panel and towards the front of the campervan as it will make the system more sensitive.

You can screw the WiTi onto a panel through the mounting.

The horn must be installed at least 1 metre away from the WiTi unit and on a different surface to prevent interference (the horn is waterproof so can be installed externally).

To turn on the Anti-Theft, press the hold button on the remote control for one second, the front indicators will flash after and then double flash to indicate the system is armed.
