DIY TripWire Alarm – Very Loud

DIY TripWire Alarm Very Simple and Outrageously Loud (High Security Perimeter)

Whether you want to secure the perimeter of your home, your bug out location or a camp site, this DIY tripwire alarm (if placed correctly) will surely disclose any stealthy intruder.

When setting up home defenses you should always keep in mind a few military principles. For example OCOKA is a military procedure used for setting up perimeter defenses and stands for:

  • Observation and fields of fire
  • Cover and Concealment
  • Obstacles
  • Key Terrain
  • Avenues of Approach

When choosing the place for the alarm you have to take into consideration all 5 principles of OCOKA.

Because one man cannot guard 24/7 a 360 degree perimeter, a tripwire alarm can be your invisible comrade guarding your back.

And it’s all very simple because all you need is a personal key-chain alarm ($4.5 – but probably you can find it even cheaper) and a fishing wire. And 10 minutes max.
