I want to say few things about chainsaw storage, if shed is not close to the house you live in, all small equipment must be stored at home end of story (my opinion). Or it will be gone sooner or later, most tools i lost was taken doring the work or short stops at shop so on, i think good steel box inside shed is good solution or secret place. 

100%.

i did see something a few years back that a smoke generator combined with strobe lighting and a ear deafening alarm all inside a building /shed/container worked like a intruder alarm

Weld mesh and some box section, weld up a storage cage, make a sandwich of weldmesh, ply, weldmesh (disc cutters hate wood) multiple protected lock points (make sure bolt croppers and discs can’t access the padlocks) Days work and a few hundred quid in materials, can be custom sized to your space, shelves hooks etc.
Smokecloak or similar stops them from seeing too.
Game keeper blank shotgun triggers as a back up. Keep it looking less posh, tidy and fence off logs and chip so it’s less obvious.

Speak to your insurer and make sure you satisfy all their needs so if the worst happens they actually pay out

A sabre saw with rescue blade would cut the sandwich as fast as a chainsaw and much quieter The only durable material left is reinforced concrete Battery tools have done us no favours

Yup but how many criminals take that kit? most take oxy/acy bottles or a stone saw… that setup massively slows both of them.
It’s only storing chainsaws not the crown jewels! Taking reasonable precautions keeps the insurers happy. Tick all their boxes in writing too and then you get a pay out. If someone wants it they will find a way to get it.
Our security is to stop the chancers and semi prepared ones. Insurance stops the pros

A friend of mine had a unit where he kept his plant and the rear door opened onto fields and was only composite ply to the outside. All the units were getting broken into from this side so inside the frame we made a 4" angle frame and a 6mm plate door with a couple of locks inside. Eventually the outside door was smashed but the inside steel plate was hardly marked.

I like the idea of secret hidden storage area rather than physical strong boxes etc would require some ingenuity of design though..
