Hello, my friend and welcome back! We all know the importance of perimeter alarms in an SHTF situation. While there are a lot of different ways to accomplish this, some are far more effective than others. This video is from TAOFLEDERMAUS and I really think you will enjoy it, I know I did. I need to get a couple of these to add to my preps. Grab a cup of coffee my friend and have a seat while we visit.
Well, that is it for today and I hope you have enjoyed this video. Until next time, stay safe, stay strong and stay prepared. God Bless America!

Thanks for posting Sarge……..The perimeter alarm product is well made and packaged professionally so it will last many years in storage. Better to have a few around then rely on loose pebbles in a tin can rattling on the wire or allowing some persons to creep silently up to your window doing field intelligence and counting heads. Add a sharp-eared dog to your preps also will help detect those zombie-creepers!
The trick to successfully protect your property or homestead is to remain low-key in appearance and still plan on nondescript barriers, plant natural plantings and prepare avenues that funnel intruders where you want them to go. Most won’t want to crawl through a planted thorn bush, or traverse areas that create noise and attention. An alarm like this can help, though won’t be a cure-all. Some is better than nothing in my book. Even the most determined intruder will wonder what could next after tripping a 170 decibel flash bang.
I can see some value of having these around a campsite perimeter or relatively small homestead. Too large an area and you’d have to string many of them for full coverage or risk the string being too long. Along those lines, if too large an area for coverage, in the dark you’d be hard pressed to tell exactly WHERE your intruder (s) were coming from. Too small an area and an adversary or hungry carnivore would be upon you in no time at all.
However, if your camp or homestead could find you in an area with access only(?) from defined avenues of approach then these would work GREAT. Just be aware that if you are being pursued and your general area is known, chances are pretty good those chasing you are aware of the pitfalls of taking the easy path.
That said, and considering the Human Factor, obviously you’d be telling a pursuing element that “We are nearby” or you have something of value you need to protect thus the alarm or alarms.
As stated in the video, you’d NOT want to employ them with LIVE cartridges used for hunting or self defense or with a means of containing the shell casing, for LEGAL reasons.
HOWEVER, in a complete grid down scenario where there is a WROL sitiation, let your conscience be your guide but be prepared to face the repercussions if society returns to civility, etc. That said, if you are out in the sticks with a homestead and plan to remain there for the time it takes to get back to the New Norm, well, you DO have property, right? And you DO have a Shovel, RIGHT?!?
Again, let your conscience be your guide.
