a couple of axle stands or even blocks of wood, would do the job tho, being alerted to the caravan moving wont stop it being taken, a lack of wheels will!
take a look at wifi baby monitors, these will even react to sound too
the only other thing to make you aware of is that a caravan will move, even slightly in the wind, how long before you start ignoring the ping on your phone?
being connected to ehu wont stop them taking it, and in fact all they will do is make sure to unplug it beforehand, you need something that will continue to work so rechargeable batteries, hence why I said the baby monitor
Totally agree with you there, a motion camera is next to useless, so what if you know the van is currently being stolen if your about half an hour away, the scumbags will be long gone by the time your able to do anything about it.
And don't think calling the police will stop them, police aren't exactly the fastest at responding to things these days.
The best way to stop something being stolen is make it as difficult as possible to steal it, take the wheels off, lock the steadies down, using a hitch lock or even removing the hitch all together.
If it takes a thief longer than a few minutes to steal something they'll not bother, the longer they are messing around trying to get your van the more chance people will see them and the more chance the thief just wont bother.
