Love these things Oct 12, 2011
These alarms have never let me down, I've used them for years. They deliver a loud piercing sound when activated, and are an excellent deterrent to anybody opening a door or window they shouldn't be opening. It comes with window decals warning of an alarm system.
Sure, a super expensive alarm system installation would be better, but for all intents and purposes, this alarm system gives me piece of mind when I leave the house and go to sleep at night.

Some Security At Little Cost Jun 17, 2012
Okay, they're not a substitute for a true security system but they're not intended to be. They do make a reasonably loud alarm sound which is what I wanted to scare off anyone trying to break into our garage. It's an easy and cheap alternative to a complete and complicated security system. They're fairly small but still could pose an installation problem. It's too bad they don't come as both left and right hand versions to be more compatable with left and right opening doors. I had to mount it upside down to work with the door I wanted to protect. They come with batteries installed which turn out to be three coin cells in series. Not as easy or cheap to replace as AAA's but the instructions claim a year's life, probably depending on how many times the alarm or chime sounds, plus they allow for a smaller unit.
Each one has a three position switch on the side for Alarm, Off, and Chime. The switch feels pretty iffy. I don't expect it to last very long if it's switched every day but time will tell. All 8 worked out of the box.
It's a small added bit of security which, hopefully, will at least scare off a more honest criminal.
Follow-up: The claim of 1 year battery life is hopelessly optimistic. It's more like 2 months, even if careful not to activate the alarm or chime. The unit installed on the garage door is already on it's third set of batteries. My opinion has changed from somewhat useful to a total waste of money.

Don't waste your money. Jun 13, 2012
First of all, the item took a long time to get to us. Second, when we got it, 3 out of the 8 alarms didn't work at all. But we decided to try to use 4 out of the 5 working alarms anyway. We put 3 on doors and 1 on a window in our toddlers's room. Within a few hours, one of the alarms fell off the door (no thanks to the crappy double-sided tape sold with the alarms for use) and broke. So we replaced it with the last working alarm. Later that night (actually at 2:30 in the morning!), the alarm in our toddler's room fell off the window which set off the alarm and gave us the scare of our life! And the next day another alarm fell off a door. So out of 5 alarms, 4 fell off within 24 hours of putting them up. And the 5th alarm just stopped working in less than a week. And last of all, the alarms are not loud! So please don't waste your money!

Unbelievable Aug 19, 2012
Not usually a reviewer because think people have too high expectations but these are not worth the purchase. 4 out of the 8 worked. Needed them until could get better pool protection with child so had to make do with 4. Don't buy unless you realize they will not all work properly. Don't know if battery issue or product issue.

THEY DO THE JOB Dec 16, 2012
MY HUSBAND HAS DEMENTIA/ALZHEIMERS AND HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN OUTSIDE PERSON. I WANTED THEM SO THAT I WILL ALWAYS KNOW WHEN HE GOES OUTSIDE. HOWEVER, HOPEFULLY IT IS JUST THE BATTERIES THAT CAME WITH THE UNITS, THE BATTERIES BARELY LAST A WEEK. I BOUGHT A SET OF 8 AND AM USING THE BATTERIES FROM THE OTHER UNITS AND THEN I WILL PURCHASE MORE BATTERIES. THE BATTERIES ARE THE FLAT DISK TYPE AND ARE QUITE EXPENSIVE AND EACH UNIT REQUIRES 3 FLAT DISK BATTERIES.
THE ALARMS AND/OR CHIMES ARE REALLY NICE AND LOUD - SO I DO LOVE LOVE LOVE THAT FEATURE.
