1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Hi guys can anyone recommend a decent shed alarm, need something reliable and one that don't give false activations, I've looked at the general run of the mill stuff on the bay and Amazon but most look cheap tat, I would rather go with a recommendation.

    Cheers Steve.

    Funny you should mention this, these arrived yesterday from Amazon - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00GUBJJ96?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00

    They really are good considering the low cost and work perfectly - the 90db siren seems a lot louder, the set is fully extendable, I'm currently running two sounders, one in the shed on full siren and one in the house on chime with 4 x PIR's, they use a key fob to switch on and off.

    If you don't want the 3 x C batteries in the main control box/siren make sure you buy the PSU.

    Cheers Steve could just be what I'm after, were coming into that time of the year when the scum are wondering the streets in the night, someone had the motor done in our street the other night, so thought I'd better get the shed sorted, thanks mate.

    I use these, accidentally set one off, even tho I knew it was there, scared the s**t out of me.

    Used in conjunction with electronic device, should deter anyone.

    Easy to program, insert batteries in PIR's then turn on main control by inserting batteries or PSU, main control is in program mode for 30 seconds with 3 LED's flashing, wave hand in front of PIR's and they will pair with the box and give 3 beeps each, then just hold key fob button for a couple of seconds to pair it and beep - it's done.

    I like these because they can be used for a multitude of purposes and in particular to warn you of the presence of large warm objects like people and cars entering your premises, they claim not to detect small animals like cats - no problems yet anyway with false activations.

    I'm going to use one above my daughters bed as well to warn us of seizure activity as they only detect moving heat signatures and should be ideal for that. :up:

    I've got high definition CCTV watching but nothing to alert for a seizure if she's asleep and were in a different part of the house. Whole house is rigged with cameras to any TV in any room.

    as biggaj said you cant beat a baby monitor i've had one in my garage for the past few years to keep an eye out on my bikes , the transmitter is in the garage and the reciever is in my bedroom at a distance of about 70 yds with 4 walls in between them and the sound is so clear in the morning i can hear birds on the garage roof and kids playing on the park at the back of the garden which must be a good 40 yds away from the garage

    Get the one that has a motion sensing pad under the mattress .... it basically sounds an alarm when breathing stops, believe me it works.

    Or just get a claxon rigged up to a button in your bedroom or lounge.
