If you are getting ready to attend a motorcycle rally that is located in another town and would like to keep a close eye on your enclosed motorcycle trailer and the contents inside of it while you are staying at a hotel, the following security options can assist. The additional protection will decrease the chance of theft occurring and will provide you with peace of mind while you are resting.
Motion-Activated Alarm With Keypad
A motion-activated alarm with keypad can be installed on the trailer's door and a high-pitched alarm will alert you if there is any movement occurring near the motorcycle trailer or if the door to the trailer has been opened. These devices come in many styles and can installed by a locksmith. You will need to decide upon a unique pin code. This code will allow you access to the contents of your trailer by pressing a few buttons. Once the alarm is triggered, the pin code will need to be entered into the device in order to turn it off.
Special Parking Spot And A Wheel Lock
A simple way to deter theft is by making it nearly impossible to gain access to the trailer. Back the trailer up so that its door is close to a sturdy surface, such as a wall or fence. This will make it difficult for a thief to squeeze in between the surface and the trailer.
If a wheel lock is placed around one of the trailer's wheels, you will prevent anyone from being able to move the trailer forward, further discouraging a criminal from stealing your possessions. A wheel lock needs to be installed around both sides of the tire. Most models are adjustable and only take a few minutes to install.
Active GPS Tracker
An active GPS (Global Positioning System) tracker is a space-based system that can pinpoint the exact location of your trailer and motorcycle. Although this type of device may not necessarily prevent theft, it will assist with locating your belongings if they are ever stolen. You can program an active system to routinely update you on the location of your belongings via text or email. If you have a system installed in the trailer and motorcycle, you will be notified immediately if one or both of them are removed from the premises.
All of these options will allow you to relax and enjoy yourself while away from home without needing to constantly worry about your possessions being stolen. For more information, an enclosed motorcycle trailer sales representative can help.
