In the alarm mode, they will make you cover you ears, I mean they are louder than my smoke detector!

I found it curious that although it had been listed as in-stock and it had been assumed I'd received it (because of the "how was it?" e-mail) it was back-ordered.

If you are a parent or grandparent, these alarms are a great way to know if a baby or child has opened a cabinet containing dangerous items.

There are two MAIN purposes for home security systems:
1. Protecting your valuables from theft.

2. Protecting YOU from an unexpected surprise, someone coming in while you are at home.

Both goals are important but these sensors will up the chances that YOU are protected.

We have a great alarm system but there are times when we are at home and just want to make sure ONLY the most vulnerable areas (doors, windows) are alarmed. Our system doesn't allow for a "window and door alarm only" option. That leaves us with the option of having the entire house alarmed, top and bottom, or leaving the alarm off. Not an optimal choice to us, especially during the day. When we are at home, we don't need EVERY room to be on "alert" status. Just some areas.

Secondly, although not many people know this, MANY sliding glass doors are installed inproperly (up to 35%), allowing a thief to simply take them off their tracks from the outside and come in, bypassing many typical alarm sensors (check yours, you may in for an unpleasant surprise). Some alarm systems work around this. Not all do. These inexpensive sensors may help.

And even if your sliding glass doors ARE properly installed, think of the average thief's way of doing things; get in quickly, get out quickly, ignore any alarms that DO go off and get away before the police arrive. So your odds of stopping theft may be relatively small. So focus on what you CAN control - your personal safety.

That means you want to KNOW when doors and windows are opened, especially if you are in the home. You want enough warning to call "911" and slip out a side door or to make noise or whatever.

I have 8 of these installed on windows and doors in my home. I have some on interior doors, and they are set to "chime" to let me know if our 5 year old is getting into somewhere he should not!

They als take LR44 batteries, which can be bought cheaply by the dozen, even right here on Amazon!

In the alarm mode, they will make you cover you ears, I mean they are louder than my smoke detector!

And for abot $10 to $12 for a 4 pack, you can't go wrong!

This product is perfect for what I wanted. Easy installation is always a plus with me. You peel the back off and place it where you want. I did accidently place it in the wrong spot so I also got to test if it comes off easily. It doesn't, you have to pretty much yank it off but no damage was done to the paint and the alarm was still sticky enough to place in a new spot.

I was really disappointed with this product. It is just peel, stick, and wait for them to come off and set off the alarm in the middle of the night. The alarm is great and loud. The peel and stick tape is cheap and won't last long. I put these on windows in my house and within a week they started coming down. I had to get some glue and fasten them up permanently. I would shop around before i bought these if I knew then what i know now.

Used this on my grandson's bedroom door when he visited me in the summer, because he had "gone wandering" a few times, out of his own house. Worked so well, I gave a set to my daughter and then to his other grandparents. Only down side is that tape does not stay sticky forever, so one part or the other will fall off at some point.

I have these alarms that I purchased and I don't know why other reviewers are complaining, but I have had them adhering to my door and window frames for 3 years or more without falling off. I've had to change the batteries in the one on the door once. The best part is they also have a chime funtion, like when you walk into a store, so if I am expecting company I hear them come in.

A few years ago there were several break-ins around my neighborhood. After checking on some monitored alarm services and learning I couldn't afford to have sensors on all entry points, I decided to try these.

I purchased a total of 50 and three of those did not work at all. I chalked that up to "getting what I paid for". They ARE cheap!

They are VERY easy to install. Unfortunately, they don't stay installed. Within the first 24 hours, some had already come loose. Within a month, at least half had been put back with duct tape.

I was not able to install these on one of my doors. I could have put one on the outside of the door, but not the inside. Maybe my door is just inside-out. Or maybe these don't work on ALL doors and windows.

On the positive side, they ARE loud. They worked well enough to give me a lot more peace of mind and that was exactly what I was looking for. A few are still working and loud after more than 2 years.

I would probably look for a different brand to try next time, but these did live up to my expectations.

Great price and very easy to install. They are very loud for there size. Like the option of alarm and or chime mode. You can get a 50 or more pack of replacement button cell batteries here on Amazon.com at a fantastic price. Very pleased with there performance.
