Locking & Load Area Security

Door Open Alert System

  • Overview
  • Features

Cargo security is a priority for commercial vehicle operators and their drivers. Maple’s Door Open Alert system provides an immediate alert to drivers of a potential cargo theft event, whilst also deterring cargo criminals.

The alarm is ideal for use on delivery vehicles that may be vulnerable to so called ‘jump up’ thefts, which have recently grown in prominence. This method of attack sees criminal gangs target vehicles whilst in use, usually in slow moving traffic or when stationary at traffic lights.

The door open warning alarm, provides an immediate alert to the driver of a possible attack, whilst also alerting others to a potential crime being committed.

In Operation

The Maple Door Open Alert system automatically monitors load area doors whilst the ignition is on, if a door is opened whilst the engine is still running, a speech siren sounds, warning that the vehicle load area has been breached – “ATTENTION DRIVER NEEDS ASSISTANCE – PLEASE CALL THE POLICE”

Once activated, the speech siren will continue to sound even if the door is closed again, guarding against the possibility of the perpetrator remaining hidden inside the vehicle, or in the event the driver is threatened and forced to turn the ignition off.

To cancel the alarm and return the vehicle to normal operation, the driver must complete a covert reset of the system.
