So my best bet is to 
1) not bother with an alarm as the gaff will be broken into if burglars fancy doing it
2) own a sh1te car so no one wants to nick it

I have already fulfilled both of those criteria so I can put the feet up and relax.

I did read somewhere that the biggest deterrents to house burglary are cameras and dogs. The camera isn't going to prevent someone breaking in if they want to but the fact that the image can be used to prosecute them at a later date is what may make them choose another target. 
I'm looking to stop the more opportunistic type of criminal. I don't own anything that anyone would be bothered planning an Oceans 11 style heist for. 

I'll look into some of the alternative companies suggested and Google Nest too though, cheers!

On a slightly separate note. Did this little scrote get his bike nicked whilst he was trying to knock off the Rialto Grill?

With any of those internet alarms or any other smart devices. You must be very careful the security of the devices are good, you could very easily have your house's internet hacked and far more stolen than any burglar could take. 

2. Unsecure Internet of Things (IoT) Devices

Any Internet of Things (IoT) device that connects to a network can be hacked. From smart locks to security cameras, your connected devices could give cyber criminals an opportunity to access your Wi-Fi and steal your information. Secure your connected home devices with these cyber security practices:

Got the garden sorted last few weeks. I was part of the decking gang bout 10 years ago, and it was shameful how bad it had got. Lots of work lifting it, getting rid and laying new patio. Like anything as soon as ye get that sorted it's on to how bad everything else is, painting fence panels, re do this fix that, power wash this. In fairness it's kept me and kids going, thank feck weather has been good or goodness knows what we'd all have done.

just use command strips to save the hassle? They can take big weights.

Cheers for the suggestion, but have something to hang up outside also.

Seems like a ton of options out there but I reckon for the use it'll get I don't need an SDS one and also don't need to spend a fortune?    Just wanted something that would give a chunk more power than a cordless.

Have you got a cordless? 

I have drilled into concrete with a cordless when using the correct drillbits.

Yep, tried the cordless with a masonry bit on the wall a while ago and it wasn't having much luck so borrowed a friends corded one and it worked no bother (with the same bit). Maybe my cordless one is just a piece of junk though!

Concrete screws way to go


just drill a hole 10mm and the screw will do the rest. no need for plugs or the likes. use them the whole time for shuttering and anchoring shutters to the ground.

That's a handy number for you as you never need a measuring tape to work out what 10mm is!
