Device is alarming for ATV vandals

TRACTORS, tools and all-terrain vehicles can be protected from vandal attack by fitting a remote detector system.

The detector/receiver range, from Martley Electronics, is portable, connected by radio signals and is claimed to operate up to a distance of five miles.

Wired to a vehicle-mounted sensor, the system transmitter sends a radio signal to a receiver box in the farmhouse. This then sets off an audible alarm. Also available for the modular kit is a heat sensor to detect movement within a farm machinery building.

Price of the kit starts from £150 (01905-621313).
