Outbuilding security recommendations

Looking for some advice on recommendations.

Having to store set of wheels in an out building for a short period of time. Looking to see if anybody has any recommendations for scaring off any would be chiefs. As there is no electricity - it will have to be a battery operated device - appreciate that there are limitations with this; but every little helps.

Have seen the following battery operated PIR on Amazon

https://www.amazon.co.uk/TRIXES-Wire...arage+security

And also seen a "garage grenade" - details seem a bit limited!

Any suggestions welcomed!

Thanks

Netgear Arlo:

Battery operated.

You need to subscribe to a cloud service for recording but that's the beauty of it because you need not have a recording device at the location for obvious reasons.

Alternatively you could achieve the same with a Ring doorbell that is battery operated with cloud recording.

AFAIK the Arlo would probably require battery replacement every 3 months. I may be wrong though as it was a user review I read some time ago.

Wireless alarms are plentiful out there. Ones with GSM that will notify your phone or email you a sensor trigger.

Solar Power Flood light:

The doorbell you could transfer to your home after if you have not one already.

Other ideas. Wheel clamps. One for each wheel as a deterrent.

Store in a secure location e.g. with BMW. Or even with a friend / relative. Could even store in a storage place such as Access, Shurguard etc... and take out their insurance for the appropriate value.

A rather different approach but BMW store both our sets of winter/summer wheels and charge £36 per switch, so the total annual cost for each car is £72, and that includes a mini-valet of the car and as many biscuits as you can eat in 90 minutes

Thanks guys.

Helpful suggestions - I have no wifi where they will be stored (for short term) - so don't think cameras will work.

Just been having a think - 2 metres of chain and a good padlock and I can stick them all together. I would like to see somebody move all 4 at once!

They can roll quite easily so make sure you donít chain them together one on top of each other.

Or stick them on the lounge floor with a piece of MDF on top and you have a very stylish coffee table!!

What about something like a Van Vault? Bolt it to the floor of the outbuilding and (if they fit?) with 4 wheels in - shouldn’t be going anywhere

I was thinking along the same lines. Security ring bolted to concrete floor or block wall with security bolts, but have a suitably long and thick steel hawser made (or find online) as it's more difficult to cut through than steel chain.

I put mine in the loft. Bit of a ball ache getting them up though. Takes two people. One in loft and one below. I put a strong strap through the wheel and then hoist them up whilst the person below pushes them up.

Wifi. Get a mifi device, data sim and, battery pack. Will keep it going for at least 3 days depending on the size of the battery. All that said my original thought was... lots and lots of chain with microfibres to avoid scratches. Padlocks are easy to break. I was thinking along the lines of a steering wheel lock. Put the arm through the spokes and lock it. You would need the right size and shape else it wouldn't work of course.
