The Mobeye i110 container alarm is a great value battery powered GSM shipping container alarm system with integrated key-pad, PIR detector (Motion detector) and an in-built siren. This is a professionally designed and built alarm system which works well in a range of single room enclosed spaces such as shipping containers, but this can also work well with sheds, workshops, garages, caravans, lock-ups and almost any ‘single space’ environment.
The system is an ‘all-in-one’ unit with an external low-profile antenna (comes with an option for 2.5 metres or 10 metre cable to connect to the base unit). Within the unit, is the PIR detector, the control key-pad and the audible siren.
This alarm system is easy to install. It can simply be sat on-top of any solid item, laid on a solid item or hung on screws using the pre-punched holes.
Activating and deactivating the alarm is done using the key-pad with your own unique 4-digit passcode and the in-built motion sensor has a 360 degree reach and the unit can be positioned vertically or horizontally. Any access to your shipping container whether it be through the cargo doors, the roof or side panels will be detected by the motion sensor with the alarm then sending an SMS to your mobile (up-to 2 mobile numbers can be contacted by the system), followed by calls to your mobile numbers to ensure the SMS isn’t missed.
For day to day use the Alarm system comes with programmable 4 entry delay times (15, 30, 45 & 60 seconds). The exit delay time is fixed at 60-seconds. Once you open the door normally the alarm countdown will activate and if your code isn’t entered in time, the siren will sound and the alarm system will notify all nominated phone number via text message of the alarm activation with a follow-up call to ensure the SMS message isn’t missed.
If the passcode is entered incorrectly (3-times), the alarm is locked for a period of 10-minutes.

Key Differences between the Mobeye Argos Alarm and the Mobeye i110 Container Alarm
The Mobeye i110 alarm is the slightly cheaper unit, and has slightly reduced features. The main difference being:
- The i110 can alert up to 2 mobile phones, the Argos alarm up to 5 mobile phones can be alerted when the alarm goes off.
As a 20ft container is only just over 6 metres long, the sensor range will never be an issue inside a 20ft container
As a 40ft container is approx. 12 metres long, you may want to consider the range of the motion sensor when fixing alarms inside a 40ft container. If your sensor has an 10 metre range, then fitting the system anywhere between 2 metres and 6 metres down the length of the container will ensure full coverage internally.
