Designed for motorhomes and RVs
Specifically designed with motorhomes and American RV style vehicles in mind this comprehensive remote controlled alarm security system offers maximum security for your home away from home and all the comfort features you would ever require, with ease of operation being one of its key features and support for up to 6 wireless sensors such as PIR movement sensors and door/window/locker contacts.

Thatcham ABI Insurance Approved to Category 2-1 and Category L2-1 for petrol and diesel vehicles
To ensure this alarm is of the highest quality it has been assessed and approved by the ABI (Association of British Insurers) Motor Insurance Repair and Research Centre, known as Thatcham. It has been approved as meeting their extensive criteria for quality and security for use on petrol and diesel vehicles in the Category 2-1 and Category L2-1 which covers motorhomes and American RVs. This isn’t just an alarm intended for a car that might not be suitable for insurance purposes on a motorhome or RV.

Professional Installation
A motorhome or RV is very different from a car or van in many ways and not all alarm installers realise the complexities involved in fitting a security system to one or have no experience of modern vehicles with complicated digital CANBUS wiring. We have over 20 years experience in this market and all our engineers are fully trained and vetted to make sure that your pride and joy is protected in the right way and is treated with the care an attention it deserves. The system will be demonstrated to you in full on completion.

Ease of use
This system is designed so that all the standard features can be easily operated from the vehicles original remote controls without the use of an additional remote control. However, if your vehicle has only one remote control supplied as standard, adding an additional remote control will prove more cost effective than buying an original remote control. An additional remote control is required for some features (indicated in the full feature list below).
Should you accidentally lose or damage the remote control when away there is a secure emergency override procedure so that you don’t get stuck. For your peace of mind the optional remote controls also have a panic feature that allows you to press a button to instantly set the alarm off. The optional remote controls use a military grade random encryption system to make sure a sophisticated thief cannot grab your code and clone your remote control.

Security
The alarm protects your cab doors, bonnet and will detect movement in the cab, additional wireless PIR movement sensors and wireless magnetic contacts can protect your habitation doors, windows and lockers. If the alarm is triggered the extremely loud siren will sounds and the hazard lights will flash, you can also connect an optional pager to alert you up to half a mile away. The siren has a built in battery backup so even if a determined thief cuts all the wires to it or disconnects your vehicles battery it will still carry on sounding.

    Great personal service and very professional. Had an alarm and tracker fitted. Arrived at 10am and all finished by 2.30pm. Engineer was also very professional and all fittings very tidy and no wires visible! Would thoroughly recommend Falcon and delighted with the alarm and tracker.
