Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TonyDe Does what it is supposed to do.
I purchased two of these alarms. I was about to return them because I could not get the remote to recognize the base unit. The instruction sheet is not very clear. My friend and I decided to try one more time. We figured out that the button on the remote has to be pushed while the base unit is flashing. They both work fine now. I would have given this a 5 rating except for the fact it needs a revised instruction sheet.
TMAC2 - anyone installing this kind of equipment should know that small screwdrivers are always needed. A jewelers kit has all the small flat blade and philips head screwdrivers you would need.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pixelot Win! Totally freaked out creepy handyman that opened my door without permission.
It's super easy to install and does exactly what it's supposed to do -- it totally freaked out the creepy handyman that opened my door when I was not home. That's right, creep, you have to ask permission to enter my apartment! (Not only is it the law, it's not going to be fun for him to snoop anymore.)
It's good and loud and it has worked fine for over two years now, no problems. Totally worth the money!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by anniekaitlyn Works great
It works just fine for me! Just make sure the frame around the door is pretty flat and flush with the door itself. The batteries it came with ran out within a month, but it's easy to change those. The flat circle battery that is in the remote hasn't died yet for me, so I can't review that part of it.
My only issue so far...It just went off for no reason while I was sitting on my couch by myself, at night time. Scared the living Christ out of me. Wasn't an earthquake, and no one opened the door. Maybe it's just feeling sensitive; but it scared me. Not okay :(

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Junk, don't buy
Do NOT Buy, does not work, tech support never answers or calls back. Bought this for a garage door. Got it home, read instructions and the remote would not "program". I re-read instructions and than went online and used their website instructions which were different, no luck. Called their Tech Support and after an entire day of leaving messages with a promise to call me back, I gave up. It has now been 3 days, still no call back. I think that they do not have tech support.
Worse product I ever got from Home Depot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by safeandprotecteded perfect for apartments
If you live in a bad part of town, this alarm is perfect for your safety and your personal property. Easy to install and set up the remote, just dont forget you have it armed when you open the door. I gave a startle the few times I forgot..... Good product, have recommended it others in the building....

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by xXMosKauXx Didn't work at all
I had multiple chirp alarms that I traded in for this one, I only needed one. I thought it would be just as efficient including the remote to set it from the outside ,after I left home to go to work. You could hear the unit responding to the alarm remote; but when you opened the door the alarm didn't sound. Armed or Disarmed....it wouldn't do anything when you opened the door. Tried new batteries and even reprogramming. I expected this device to at least warn me of intruders or warn them to stay away. It disappointed me. Nice concept....but it was a fail. I'll be returning it.
