Apparently, Home Depot doesn't check to see if an item has already been reviewed "before" requesting another review. I have already reviewed this item.
But, happy to do it again.
These little alarms are incredibly easy to install.
I'd say it took me maybe a minute or less to put up the first one.
All you do is remove the paper off of the sticky backing and put in place.
One piece goes on door jamb, the other on the door, and they must be as close together as possible and exactly right next to each other.
Make sure you pull the little plastic tab out of the battery compartment, turn on the switch and the alarm is ready to let you know if anyone opens your door...or window.
So far, mine have worked just fine.
The only reason I didn't give an overall "Excellent" rating is, I'm wondering how long the batteries last and what they cost to replace them.

I have had these four alarms for maybe 2 weeks now and so far, I have no complaints.
They are super easy to use, no muss, no fuss. It took me maybe 30 seconds or less to attach one to my front door and door jamb. I then put one on the back door and another door in the house.
They turn on and off with a little switch. Just remember to turn the alarm off before you open the door, the sound is very high pitch and shrill.
I'm just wondering how long the batteries last and how much they are to replace in each alarm.
I would suggest only turning them on at night when you go to bed or when you want to monitor a particular door or window during the day, it'll save the batteries if they're not on constantly.

I was definitely warned in the other reviews that this was loud but I was not expecting it to be like that. I love that it is that loud, my front door is 3 stories down from my bedroom and i can hear it well! Super product for the right price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jb184 Stopped my toddler...
I had an issue with our toddler opening the window and throwing things out to the driveway/roof. After the first time he heard it, we haven't had issues. Have them on doors and windows as he likes to go outside whenever he feels content. This sound alone has helped us with that just enough to make it worth every penny. We can't always hear it downstairs due to how loud our steam oil is, but when the oil is off, they can be heard one floor down and over.
Super easy to install. Just note that they devices go off if further than an inch away to plan accordingly.

I was looking for security without having to have a monthly fee. I know it's not like having a call go to the police station but I think if someone tries to break into my house the noise may run them off or at least it will give me notice to get myself armed. I do feel safer. these alarms were very easy to install and are very loud.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shinobi Great alarm system.
Super easy to install. Only tools needed are your hands. The only concern with it is that someone has to be home to arm it. But super loud and a great warning system.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carol Fantastic for the price!!
I put these on my plantation shutters, so I can leave my windows open all night to cool the house off. The alarm does turns off if the contact/shutter is closed again but is so loud that even a second or two would wake everyone up. Some people complained that they didn't stick well, but mine seem to be attached very strongly, don't budge even with pressure. You can't beat the price (2/3 of Amazon cost for same product.) We've been using them for several weeks and very happy!
