Alarm warning in spanish/Portuguese

Having had my driver's door lock damaged, I'm aware that my signage for having an alarm is pathetic. Yes, I have a flashing light front and back but that's invisible in the sunshine. The only other warnings I have are 2 small signs on the side windows, right at the front edge. None near the various door locks.

I thought I'd tape a bright-coloured post-it to the inside windows at the 2 exit doors.

What should they say? Minimal text is best. In Spanish and in Portuguese please. Thanks.

Estŗ alarmado. Apparently that's OK for Spanish OR Portuguese.

So long as it doesn't mean it's frightened!!

Can anyone confirm please?

Totally pointless! Alarms donít deter thieves. They will be in and out in less than a minute.

I know that sounds a long time but try timing yourself for a minute from opening a door, having a quick (so therefore very untidy) search of the obvious places and leaving. You will be surprised.

Ask yourself how much attention people pay to a car alarm these days, that will give you an idea of their efficacy.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

I agree but we have just had an alarm fitted to our Spanish motorhome as I believe it will shorten the time the pondlife will be in the van and that way they wont, hopefully, find my little hidden spots.

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!

I thought just Alarmado, but I looked at car alarms and the signs on Amazon.es just to check. Surprisingly all the signs on there are in English. Here's an example.

Thanks Alan.

Yes, Andy, agreed - especially as I once drove from a carpark next to police quarters, and past a Spanish policeman with my alarm blaring - no one batted an eyelid (except us!!)

The alarm had been triggered by whatever security or communications they had in the area and was a known problem.

But.... If they can find easier pickings they will.

You could fix deadlocks to all the doors but then if determined they will come in via the windows or the heki.
