With the zillions of electronic devices flooding the market today, I would bet good money that your security device is available. Some of these things are hidden away though in specialty magazines like Sharper Image, or HAMMACHER SCHLEMMER.

If you do a simple Google search on "home security devices", I would bet you'd find something that would work.

Thank you. I was unsure what terminology to even use to do a search... Prior attempts just kept pointing me at whole house systems

Comments posted that imply a need for a more direct and/or details answer - similar to the comment made by ray1970 - can encourage someone to detail some information that the wrong person could "store in memory" on how we try to protect our firearms in our homes or vehicles.

Questions/comments like that are better served using PM's or email if you have it.

Again, not positive or negative in my observation. Securing my firearms is not a question I answer openly to the world. Just think it unwise.
In this multi-media world we live in, that comment can be said for just about anything. Examples: all the thriller movies made about unique ways for assassination. Or excessive news coverage of ISIS using vehicles to mow down innocents. Or just Google "how to break into a gun safe".

I think it is safe to say that there are hundreds of forums on the internet that discuss home security. It's not all bad. Had it not been for such forums, I would have never thought to triple the length of bolts on door dead-bolts to strengthen that lock by a factor of 17.

Devices such as V-Line, Gun-Grabber, GunVault, are advertised extensively, and discussed openly. Just the world we live in.

My brain is just wired a bit different than most and sometimes when I read something that doesn't register with me I get sudden diarrhea of the mouth and spout things off without much thought.

My apologies. Take care.
No offense taken. But as has been stated, much better than I could hope to, this is information I am reluctant to share openly here on the forum. Yes, if you look at my posts over time, you can get a good idea of what I have in place, but not everything. Have a good day.

Major Tom, I have been looking for a solution for a long gun for some time, while I have a few of the smaller V-Line (and really like them), I didn't know the bigger ones existed. Thanks for your post, really helpful. While acknowledging the previous point about not giving away all of our personal security details, in this case a real world example/detail was extremely useful, and I appreciate you sharing.

Glad to help, dbos. As you can tell, I, too, like the V-Line products. The shotgun case is a little bit small in width. I can only fit one long gun into it, but for the application, it works perfectly. Room to keep a G31 in it, along with the long gun.

Short answer: yes. The wording of your question implies that you already have a security system. If so, many security systems have a "chime" or "on watch" feature which sounds a tone or makes a verbal announcement when a door is opened (and the system is disarmed). Check your security system manual for details. Of course, if the system is armed, you will generate a genuine alarm if a door is opened.

If you dont have a security system, there is quite a wide range of products that can be adapted to do what you are trying to do. Amazon has an endless assortment of such stuff.

would be better to put your brackets above the door on the inside of the closet .. no one will see it and only you will know its there .. out of the way and can't be knocked over ..

That's where my 20 gauge is ..
