T4 Post Icon Dead switch.

Hi people,

So with so much theft going on at the moment absolutely nothing seems safe.
I'm going to fit a dead switch in the van and on my mx bike. Has anyone done this before?

Have a look at this .... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TK103-Car-...YAAOSwrklU5b70
Tracker unit controlled via your own phone and comes with a relay you can wire into an electrical system to disable and enable via SMS messaging (on a T4, maybe ignition or immobiliser?)
I've fitted a couple of these and they are nice little "peace of mind" units I think.

This is something I am also going to be looking at when I come back to UK so hope you get someone with tips on how to do it. I will probably also go for a tracker but that's just belt and braces and I would want to catch any scumbag quickly!.
