I have just finished my own iDevice application for intrusion detection. It uses the Elgato Eve Motion Sensor (~$50). The issue with these type of devices is that they require a hub (Instead or Apple TV) to be able to send alerts to your iPhone. I noticed that the iDevice could detect the intrusion. So why not have it send an SMS. I created a web site that will send the SMS. Then I just access that site if I want it to send an SMS.
This will require me to leave one of my iDevices (iPhone or iPad with data plan) in my rig to detect the motion. The other device will get the SMS. I tend to carry my iPad into restaurants for reading while eating. So I can leave the iPhone in rig.
This is not a commercial product, so I can't share. Just an exercise in making it work.
The issue is at truck stops, chain restaurants, and other large parking lots. This is where most break-ins happen. I would be within a couple seconds of the rig.
I guess since we never park and leave the rig at those places I never really thought about it like that. If you feel threatened in those places or frequent places like that in your area that experience break-ins, please use caution if your alarm system does go off and you respond back to your rig. Usually the best course of action is to call 911.
