If you’re considering the purchase of a robotic lawn mower, you’ve likely pondered, “Do robotic lawn mowers get stolen?” It’s a fair question to ask, as these high-tech gardening aids are indeed quite an investment.

At Landpower Robotics, we understand your concerns. We have found that while thefts are possible, they are very rare in reality, and there are robust measures in place to protect your new Husqvarna Automower® from such incidents.

How Husqvarna Prevents Robotic Lawn Mower Thefts

Husqvarna, the leading brand in robotic lawn mowing, has devised a multi-layered theft protection system for their Automowers. This system combines a mix of PIN codes, alarms, and even GPS tracking on certain models to safeguard your device.

PIN Code Protection

Every Automower® comes equipped with a unique PIN code that needs to be entered to operate the mower. Much like a bank card, your robotic lawn mower can’t be used without the correct PIN. Anytime the mower is lifted or stopped, the PIN code needs to be entered, or an audio alarm will sound.

Furthermore, some models feature a time lock, which prompts the user to input the PIN code at user-specified intervals.

Alarm System

Should someone attempt to lift or stop your Automower® without entering the PIN within 30 seconds, an alarm will sound, alerting you to the potential theft. Rest assured, this alarm can be deactivated at any moment by inputting the correct PIN code.

Installation Lock

Another significant security feature is the installation lock. Each mower is paired exclusively with its charging station and cannot function with another one, as the loop signal will be inaccurate.

GeoFence and GPS Tracking

Husqvarna’s X-line models offer enhanced security with a GPS communication unit. This unit provides GPS-based theft protection, establishing a virtual fence or GeoFence around the product. If the mower strays beyond the fence, you’ll receive a notification, and you can track the mower’s movements. The GPS unit is also available as an accessory for most other models.

How to Keep a Robot Mower from Being Stolen

Beyond Husqvarna’s comprehensive anti-theft measures, there are additional steps you can take to prevent your robotic mower from being stolen. Securing your garden with a fence and a lockable gate will provide an extra layer of protection. Also, always store your Automower® indoors when not in use, especially during the off-season. As part of our Husqvarna Automower® service packages we offer premium options including winter storage.

While the question “Do robotic lawn mowers get stolen?” is valid, Husqvarna’s anti-theft measures are highly effective, and instances of theft are minimal. By utilising these built-in security features and following basic security measures in your garden and home, you can comfortably enjoy the convenience of a beautifully manicured lawn without worry.
