New Anti-Theft Alarm System From ABUS - As bikers, we have to take extra precautions to keep our bike safe, and ABUS is making that easier than ever with their new anti-theft alarm, the Alarmbox. The Alarmbox is different than most smart locks because it doesn’t feature a locking mechanism. The device is actually attached to the rider’s bike based on their specific preferences, and is armed/disarmed by a key and can be mounted under your seat or in plain sight. This anti-theft system uses a motion sensor to detect any movement to the motorcycle it’s attached to. The alarm will sound if it senses movement with a siren that reaches 100db and lasts up to 15 seconds - ouch. This device, aimed to scare off thieves, costs just $59. Check it Out.
