Sensitivity of the WiTi Anti Theft alarm
WiTi incorporates the very latest gyroscope and accelerometer technology, similar to that found in drones. This enables us to program WiTi to detect different movements and triggers.
Acceleration - WiTi is very sensitive to acceleration. Forward or reverse acceleration will trigger WiTi Anti-Theft.
Rocking the van side to side - this motion has been programmed out so that the alarm does not trigger in windy conditions.
Will windy conditions set off the Anti Theft alarm
Wind or gentle movement will not activate the alarm. WiTi is sensitive to two types of movement, sharp knocks and forward or backward acceleration. In practice you can walk around inside your caravan without the alarm being triggered but if you were to slam a door or bang on the side of the caravan or trailer this sharp knock would trigger the alarm.
Moving the caravan forwards or backwards, as in an attempt to steal the caravan, will also trigger the Anti Theft system.
What if someone else needs to tow my van?
If your caravan / trailer needs to be towed by another vehicle then the anti-theft system will need to be deactivated by pressing the button on the remote control. An option is to leave the existing wiring harness in place and add the Wireless Interface in parallel then both the fixed wiring harness and the Wireless Interface can be used depending on the tow vehicle.
How much current does WiTi use
In standby mode and with the alarm and anti-theft system activated, WiTi will draw 0.08A. On a 100 A/Hr battery WiTi will be operate for approximately 1 month without the battery receiving any charge. In normal conditions and whilst travelling WiTi will draw very little additional current over existing lighting and braking requirements.
A solar panel connected to the house battery will provide more than enough power to maintain charge on the battery and operate WiTi whilst travelling.
