  1. Smokescreen isn’t a conventional alarm as such, it’s actually a piece of kit that’s triggered by an alarm, when the alarm is activated the smokescreen dumps a load of “fog” into the protected area, the idea being if you can’t see it you can’t steal it! It’s very effective, I fitted one in my local cricket club and one night after a party a young lady fell asleep in the loo , when she woke up she walked into the lounge after the place was locked up and triggered the system, she was found by the police crying her eyes out thinking she had gone blind!
