I live in Hawaii. We have jalouise windows. These are extremely common in Hawaii. They consist of horizontal slats, with each slot about four inches wide. They can be removed very easily. Traditional alarm systems would not be effective with these type windows. But, a motion activated alarm is PERFECT!
Some reviewers noted that the sensors are large and easily observable, so if a person moves in front of the sensor VERY SLOWLY, it will not activate the alarm. That is true . . . I've tried it . . . but the key words are "VERY SLOWLY"! It is necessary to move at a true snail's pace to not activate the alarm. A burglar wouldn't want to measure their movements so carefully.
The alarm is quite loud at 105 decibels. It provides a grace period of about ten seconds of just beeping before the real alarm starts. It should easily be heard by your neighbor unless you live on a farm in the country. That alarms would certainly scare the vast majority of burglars and "encourage" a quick exit.
What happens if they pull the electrical plug? Nothing! Both the base unit and remote sensors have battery back-up.
Customer service is responsive.
The emergency response monitoring is not too expensive.
I really like my LaserShield. It give me piece of mind.
Rating the unit-
Set-up = A. easy to read and follow instructions
Components = D.
a).Transmitters are physically large in relation to their function/operation. They are easy to spot by intuders.
b). base station. Alarm signal is loud enough to be a
nuisance. Perhaps it was designed to incapacitate intruders through laughter.
c). Sensitivity = F
I placed the 2 sensors in logical locations and "broke into" my own house with the system armed. I assumed that the intruder would come during the day. Any intruder with half a brain would see the sensors - they have a big red LED on the front.
Sadly, I was able to get by the sensors and gain access to all of the house by using very slow deliberate movements. It bears mentioning that I am 6'5" 250 lbs and that I moved within 5' of the front of one of the sensors without setting off the alarm.
Once I had decided to return the unit, I started moving more naturally to see what the threshold was for me to be detected.
I was not impressed, to say the least.
It is true that it would be hard to leave the house carrying
a TV or a sofa but intruders easily could have walked off with small valuables /jewelry/cash. In fact, without installation of a third sensor they could have opened the garage door and carried 1/2 of the first floor.
Unless your prospective intruders are remarkably clumsy, or ride (remarkably clumsy) elephants, there is no way this system would detect them.
