Andrew Aldrige on his Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle
Text alert system hinders thief’s attempts to steal motorcycle

Andrew Aldridge fitted the Datatool text alert system to his Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle to add security as he had no option but to park his Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle outside his house.
Although when Andrew Aldridge, from the West Midlands, fitted the device, it’s hardly likely he wanted the system to be used so soon.
Last year, Aldridge had sat down to watch TV when he received a text message informing him the Datatool motion sensor had detected movement, swiftly followed by a second text informing Andy the alarm had been activated, despite not being able to hear it.
Aldridge sprung into action, tearing into his backyard he was met by a group of youths who were trying to steal his motorcycle. When the youths spotted him they immediately fled the scene leaving Aldridge’s Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle behind and in one-piece.
Following the event Andrew Aldridge said “I am certain without Datatool’s text alert my motorcycle would have been stolen as there was no way I could have heard the alarm going off.
“It’s good to know that if anyone goes near the motorcycle again text alert will immediately tell me.”
The Datatool Text Alert retails at £199.99.
