Mobeye Argos Battery Powered GSM Shipping Container Alarm

Using electronic security inside metal shipping containers has always been difficult, as the metal container is essentially a ‘faraday cage’, making it impossible to transmit a signal through. Many people resort to just ensuring the doors are secured with a good quality padlock, however, many thieves are prepared for this and simply cut in to the side of the containers, rendering the locks useless.

The Mobeye shipping container security system is the latest development in rapid yet simple internal security for shipping / cargo containers. On-board GSM sends SMS alerts followed by a  call to up to 5 mobile numbers INSTANTLY!

Based on the extremely popular Mobeye Argos GSM PIR, the Container Alarm variant is supplied with an external antenna iinput connector and a mushroom (flat) antenna which is passed through a small hole in the top of the container and fixes flush to the top of the roof, making it all but invisible.
