WHAT ’ S IN THE BOX ?
The heart of the RVsecure PlatinumX system is the control unit with LCD display . This can be fitted wherever is most convenient ; however , it will be wired to the van ’ s battery so that ’ s worth considering when choosing the mounting location .
The box also includes one ‘ safeGuard ’ passive infrared ( PIR ) sensor to fit inside the van . This sensor will detect motion and sound the alarm if activated .
There ’ s also a Reed switch for use on the caravan ’ s entry door , boot lid , etc . If these switches are tripped when activated , the alarm will sound .
