Thanks gents - it's maybe a touch of overkill (I only need 1 door sensor really) - but I think Screwfix's one may do the job quite nicely. It contains 2 bikes and my drum kit so I'd like to know if someone's attempting to liberate them. I dunno about having the box on the outside though. Aren't you supposed to place them somewhere out of reach?
And rott's are out the question as I spend a fair bit of time in there tinkering and practicing, and couldn't be bothered with that dog smell and constant pestering for treats/tummy rubs. Unless... If I built a perimiter fence (maybe electrify it), dig a faux moat then I could leave the dawgs to patrol it outside...
