Is it easy to get a modern security alarm for a garden shed?

Is it reasonably easy to have a modern security alarm fitted to a garden shed? As in, would it be just as feasible and affordable to have a modern alarm installed for my shed as it would be for my actual house?

"There is plenty of solutions available that would suit a garden shed. We fit house alarms that come with wireless sensors that have the range capability to reach a garden shed. These can be programmed to be always armed, even in the day time when you are home."

"If you already have a modern alarm system in the home then why not have the shed as a zone within that system?
Most modern security systems now incorporate the use of an app which will allow you to arm and disarm the system from just about anywhere."

"Hi, yes you can link the two together if you wish to save purchasing two separate alarms, the house alarm would need to be wireless or hybrid, then simply add a wireless device to the shed assuming it is in range, also if it is a metal shed you may need to go down a slightly different route."

"As long as power is down in the shed to power the alarm system it’s a straight forward job to fit and install.
It’ll be cheaper than a house install as it’s an easier cleaner installation."

"Yes but best bet is have a wireless alarm fitted to the house and extend to the shed / garage using different areas."
