    I have just bought a jetski and need to keep it safe when i go to bed, for a few weeks, which would be the simplist way to do this using my alarm panel.

    Run wires to a IR sensor, and tuck that under the fitted waterproof cover.....

    Run a closed circuit of just two wires, but using a 1k resistor on the ends of the cable, to protect the cable, would that be ok...? would that work....? fitting it so it would break the curcuit...

    this is just in case i have visitors in the night....is there a simpler/cheaper way....? thank you...

    If i'm talking nonsense, just tell me.......

    Thanks, it is in my garden, behind a 5 foot well locked wooden gate, at the side of my house, but these newer jet ski's are a lot lighter than the older stuff, the lad i just bought it of reckons two of us could get it lifted off the trailer and quite easily throw it in a van, would any of my suggestions work...?

    Cheapest option is the wire , if it’s temporary

    an alarm will tell you it is on it's way out of the garden.

    Chain it to a wall or a long length of heavy timber ( old railway sleeper for example ) to prevent the criminals moving it.

    Thanks Sparky, is that with or without resistor...? hide the wire without a resistor or leave on show hoping it will be cut.....?
    Bernard, todays lightweight trailers are easy to cut/saw through, this one will even dismantle to take a chain off......i have a wheel lock on, and a ball that locks into the ball hook...
    but you can still take the wheel off and replace with another and the ball lock, is 12 inches long and you could even swap that over (bolts) if you hade another end....

    I'd follow what Bernard has said, fekkin great big chains and expensive lock (no cheap tat).
    They will come armed with a battery grinder.

    If you can get it inside it would be safer.

    24 Hr link through chassis to give alarm notification if link broken and also heavy duty chain and padlock to slow then down while stealing jet ski.
    What alarm control panel are you connecting to ?

    Why are you going to bed for a few weeks? I need to get up for a wee if I'm in bed for longer than 4 hours these days.
