hmm, well guessing most of you dont have a 75% hearing loss and not hearing someone get into the trailer while you sleep is not a problem for you

but for me it is!

i also like knowing someone is breaking into my trailer in real time on the off chance my neighbors or the police might could stop them

the unit worked good, reliable and would have text me if someone broke in before it had these issues

if no problems i would be very happy with it

maybe my issues are just a fluke but wanted others to know

I hope you get it fixed. And please understand there was no intent on my part to cause you any harm. If this product works for you then by all means use it and please update us as to the fix.

Just a thought, I got a motion alarm for a second alarm system to be used when I do not have the whole house/garage system on, (I am home and just wanted the garage covered). About 15 bucks at HF, wireless I place the alarm near my bed and can be heard throughout the house. It will not solve the issue while your gone but, will or should wake you up when activated.

If you can't get that alarm going there are litteraly hundres of different car alarms to consider. 12 v.d.c. systems is the common denominator.

Did I miss something here? I've reread the original post(s), and I did not see a picture or link to the (cellular) equipment being discussed here. You've piqued my interest...

Cvin, "Hmm, well guessing most of you don't have a 75% hearing loss and not hearing someone get into the trailer while you sleep is not a problem for you"

We're all on your side here. Most members here are middle-aged or better and not a one of us takes our hearing or loss thereof lightly. Chuckster was making a funny in reference to Danny's shotgun comment and that the alarm not seeming to live up to it's expected longevity.

I also was interested in which alarm you purchased. I hope the alarm company gets off their butt and makes it right with you.

the name of the alarm is tattletale

here is a link

https://www.tattletale.com

i wanted something that could text me when the alarm went off to hopefully be able to prevent theft etc

when this is working correctly it does that
it can also be set to send the police just like a regular house alarm

it is wired to the toy door and the main door on my unit and will go off if someone opens the doors at nite
it does need a cell signal and uses verizon, so far i havent been anywhere that the cell signal could not pick up

it has other add ons you can see on their website, so i could in theory add more sensors etc to my van and have those alert also

wanted to update this that company is standing behind their product and is sending me a new unit
so far all my communication with these guys has been great
