You could do a live stock fence. Anything more potent though will get you 15 in the slammer. Was one about 10 years ago who killed a burglar.

And if you miss you get a Molotov cocktail against your house.

Not that uncommon.

It happened on that flip or flop show. $3,000 worth of new pool stuff.

It's a long shot, but I would check Craigslist and see if the brazen thieves are trying to sell it there

I have seen it only in unoccupied places. Was very common during the dark time though it was mostly the ex owner who did it.

But stealing a big pool heater takes balls. Anyone sees you it is curtains.

Stolen pool heaters get sold to homeowners at a discount. My neighbor's pool guy "conveniently" had a used pool heater available when theirs went out.

Mine is on the side of the house where there is no gate, just a stucco'd brick wall. So they have to walk all the way around the house to get to the equipment pad. Someone could steal my pool heater, but they'd be on three different cameras on their way to the heater, including one that looks straight down the side of the house where the pool equipment pad and A/C condensers are located.

I remember a few years back when police were chasing a couple guys who were caught stealing A/C condensers from unoccupied homes in Peccole Ranch. So trashy.

Another suggestion would be to get an alarm system that sends trips to your cell phone. I have a honeywell system where you have a outdoor gate sensor (Honeywell 5816OD) which can be set up to your alarm system to send you a text/email anytime it is opened or shut. It can be programmed to sound an alarm or if you have landscapers or pool guys it can be set outside the alarm system and just text/email you both when it opens and when it is shut.

Video that senses movement is fine but you will be constantly looking at trips. Be sure to have the sensor trips sent to both text and email as you might be in an area where only one or the other won’t work. My system honeywell requires monthly monitoring but I feel it’s worth it.

Look for your old equipment on Craigslist. Be sure to write down the models and serial numbers of all equipment.

Additionally you can set your alarm system to have a three beep chime in your home anytime day or night the gate is opened. Works great to alert you when pool guy or landscaper is in the back yard.

If nothing else, a dog would likely alert you someone was outside and that would hopefully scare the thief off.

I just checked and the 5816OD can be used with my actual alarm monitoring system and I have the option that this sensor would just send me a push notice or text but not a full blown alarm when triggered. So, this is a very nice information. Thanks. Means thieves will need in future to lift the heavy equipment over the fence, which is not an easy task...

I have a Doberman and a Weimaraner. They hear it when anyone comes on the property. Even cats! No way you could cut the lock on the gate and haul out pool equipment without alerting them!

A motion detection system that makes a gate come down somehow to trap the burglar inside would be ideal. Because then you can just not let them out so that they starve to death. Just make sure you duct tape their mouth so they can't scream.
Then a good 10 feet under buried at night in the desert will get rid of any evidence.


Good luck.

Great. I was thinking of getting a Doberman too. Any good place to get nice puppies in Vegas?
