Kent Household InstallationThere is only one reason why we chose the Oil Defender system – to stop our oil being stolen from our tank. When we discovered the lid of our near empty domestic oil tank had been tampered with earlier this year, we were prompted to think about future security to protect the large amount of oil we were due to order to get us through the winter months. Thank goodness we found the Oil Defender system. It was easy to install and it did the job. Six days after we had received our order of 2000 litres of home heating oil, the Oil Defender sensor on our oil tank lid was activated by intruders in the early hours and the alarm unit in our bedroom triggered whilst we were asleep. The alarm enabled us to ring the police and inform them that the theft was actually taking place at that very moment because the thieves had no idea we had such a system. The prompt arrival of the police prevented the thieves getting away with the six 5 gallon drums they had filled in less than 15 minutes and we were able to recover our oil. Had it not been for the fact that we were alerted to the theft as it was happening, we would no doubt have lost all our oil as the police recovered a further 22 empty 5 gallon containers near our oil tank waiting to be filled up. Unfortunately the thieves got away, but they lost their getaway vehicle and the containers. If there is a “next time” we shall be ready and waiting. Our next step is to connect an outside siren to the Oil Defender unit which will operate in the event that we are away from home. We are so pleased we had installed the Oil Defender alarm system and would have no hesitation in recommending this as one of the best deterrents for oil theft we have heard of. If you are concerned about your oil tank security, talk to Fuel Alarms. We did, and the cost of buying the unit was far less than the potential £1000+ of oil we could have lost. Satisfied customer.
