I’ve been considering options on how I might secure my pole barn and have come dry, so I wanted to get your expert opinions. The situation is this: 2000 sq ft plot barn about 100 ft away from the house. It has two big sliding doors, a normal door, and a couple windows. Our central panel is a 2GIG GoControl. It seems like the barn is too far away for the normal 2GIG sensors (I haven’t tried). Even if they could reach, the whole thing is unheated so any sensors would need to be specced to survive sub-freezing temps. I’m also not convinced I can rig up magnetic sensors on the big sliding doors, because they are old and a little loose and do not close in a precise way. I considered motion sensors but birds sometimes get in there and it seems like they would set them off.
Any ideas or am I just out of luck here?
