Don't know much about cctv, there must be cheap systems on ebay, maybe ones that can detect movement and email/message pictures to your phone, that sort of system exists I think.

Put the touch on them and put a pin on them Or add your own key switch/lock to them.

Dave Makro or Maplins do a good CCTV, think the make is Swann. They are in the region of £250 can be set to motion and will send pictures to your smart phone. I have a mobile alarm on my boat that rings me if an intruder enters my boat or contacts me if my bilge pump comes on, I can listen in if my mobile alarm rings me. I can also track the phone, they are silent and can be hidden from view. Ideal for sheds when you want to catch the bath taps in the act. A CCTV is ok if it warns you that there is an intruder, but not much use if they don't and the intruder cannot be recognised. The swann CCTV can have upto 8 camera's attached. Mick

I did see a c5 with an alarm fitted if you went anywhere near it then it bellowed STAND CLEAR and the horn sounded and hazards flashed, if it made enough noise it might act as a deterrent. Not sure where to get this alarm but someone on here will point you in the right direction.
