    What "alarm" should i be considering?

    I don't want to pay subs for a tracker

    and I wasn't too impressed with the Dealer fitted Cobra system on my old MH

    Have to say my Growler and the non-starter tracker give me so much peace of mind, I wouldn't hesitate but then I'm on commission so I'm bound to say that.

    ............Just received a call from Eddie's daughter saying I'm NO Longer on commission, but hey! it's the best one out there anyway.

    Strikeback is an alarm system that Van Bitz have been offering for a long time.

    Growler is a "Strikeback" with additional sirens inside and out that cause the thief's ears to bleed.

    Non-Starter is Eddies version of a tracker which enables you to observe your van traveling on Google maps and listen in to a conversation inside the van as well as being able to disable the engine from starting or running all on your cell-phone. as soon as one of many things happens you get a text alert followed by a phone call from your van.

    Door has been opened.
    Engine has started.
    Battery has been disconnected
    ...............................................and other messages..... Bloody Brilliant.

    Another vote for Growler and non-starter. Both are brilliant and I know they work because I have managed to accidently set them off at various times ........ Doh ..............
