Rated 5 out of 5Â by TeeZrr Love this little Alert!
I just can't believe all the negative reviews on this. We've had ours for over 8 yrs, and just love it. We've used it in two different homes and no problems. I have ours mounted on a peak at roof level above our front porch around 20 ft. high. I had my son stay on the ladder while I walked all over my front yard everywhere I wanted the alarm to sound. I even got it to stop at the curb so the passing cars wouldn't set the alarm off, just by having my son keep adjusting it (just barely move it) until I had it alarming every bit of our front and driveway side of the yard. Its been in the weather all these years with no problems. You will have to change the two batteries on the motion sensor outside, but my son climbs on a ladder to do mine. If you have a tree in your yard, mount it to that facing the front of your house and it will cover the whole front of your home and go off as soon as someone passes that tree, then you don't have to worry about cars setting it off. Then tilt it up some about waist high to go off and you won't have dogs and cats setting it off either. My husband and son go working out of town alot and i'm left home alone, I can't tell you how much better I feel knowing this works so good. I have the alarm part plugged into an outlet in a spare middle bedroom and can hear it from all over my house. In the day I know when someone is about to ring my front doorbell before their even up to the porch. But, be advised a dog and cat, etc. will also set it off. I just wish everyone on here would've had the same results as we have had. Only saw the bad reviews because I was hoping Home Depot still had these. Buying one for my recenly divorced daughter whose afraid of being alone at night. You also have to set the little dip stick thingy's on the same frequency between both pieces. Maybe thats why these peoples didn't work. All i know is I just love it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Larisa Best bang for your buck!
This is such a simple device yet I have not had a issue with things getting stolen from my front porch since I installed it. Light goes on, a sound lets me know something is going on and it definitely detours from mischief.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Steve The range is not 70 feet
This product worked OK but the range (through walls) was only about 30 feet.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Homeowner Awesome purchase
The product also works well as an unobtrusive sensor to let you know when someone is in your driveway. I have it set to "bing" in the house to let me know that someone or something is there. Previously, I had cars in my driveway that were "gently robbed." Last night, the sensor tripped and I surprised the wannabe thief by walking outside.Keep in mind the wannabe thief had managed *not* to set off the driveway light. I walked outside to see what was happening and the wannabe thief took off down the street running as hard as he could with his flashlight in hand. Pretty sure that a car picked him up. I'll see today what I might be missing, but thanks to this product as soon as this young man opened the door to my car, I was there. As a $40 preliminary alarm system, its value can't be beat.
