Facts you should know about this Shed Alarm System!

Uses for the Shed Alarm Kit:  The Shed Alarm Security System Kit is designed to protect
Storage Sheds, Trailers, Barns, Garages, Construction / Contractor Trailers or Sheds, or any other
Outbuilding that doesn't have AC power available.  These Sheds, Trailers, Barns, Garages, or
Construction Trailers should be within sight or earshot of your home, office, or a nearby neighbor.

Operation of the Shed Alarm Kit: This Shed Alarm System is armed and disarmed from
outside using a key switch.  There is no delay timer and the alarm will go off instantly if a door is
opened.   This prevents an intruder from tampering with the system before it goes off.

This Shed Alarm System is designed to set off a 110 db Outside Siren and a 110db Inside Mini Siren
for the selected time you set.  A Red Strobe Light will flash indefinitely until the Shed Alarm Security
System is reset or the battery runs out of power.

Zero Current Draw:  This Shed Alarm Security System Kit was designed to draw NO CURRENT
when  armed.  Other Alarm Systems require AC Power and have parasitic current leaks that will
eventually drain your batteries DEAD.   A well maintained and fully charged 12V heavy duty deep cycle
battery should hold it's charge for months, possibly even a year before requiring maintenance and a
recharge.  

Easy to Install: Each Shed Alarm Kit comes with Complete and Easy to follow Instructions.

Solar and Wind Power Friendly: This Shed Alarm System is perfect for 12V Solar and Wind
Powered Systems.  It doesn't use power when armed and it ties directly into 12V DC systems.

Expandable: This Shed Alarm System can be customized and expanded.  You can add more
sirens, flashing strobes, glass breakage switches, trigger mats, etc.  You can add just about any
device that runs on a 12V DC battery to this Shed Alarm System.

Shed Alarm Security System Kit Features
The Shed Alarm Security System Control Box
comes with a Battery Check Feature.

Simply press the Button marked “Battery Check” and the LED
Indicator meter lights up according to your battery voltage.  This
helps you monitor the voltage level of your battery without having
to haul a volt meter around.
The Shed Alarm Security System can be set
to operate from 1 to about 136 minutes
Most communities have limits on how long an alarm can
sound after activation so please check local ordinances

Simply set one of the Timer Setting “DIP Switches" to the
desired time setting for your alarm to sound after
activation.  A second "Constant"12V DC output is
available to power a strobe or other device until someone
resets the Alarm.
