Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jangels Super Sensitive Door Alarm, Easy to use, very loud
The door alarm runs off batteries and are included with alarm. The alarm has a switch on its right hand side for: Chime, Off and Alarm. The chime sounds like a door bell, pleasant and a quick ring (I think its three chimes). Off - self explanatory. The alarm setting sounds for approximately 20 seconds with a serious of loud sounds. It is very loud and my husband, who is hard of hearing, can hear it. The slightest bump of the door, doorknob or frame will set the alarm off. You simply hang it over the doorknob, so no installation is even required. We have had two episodes of a false alarm...one being high wind pushing on the door and the other thunder. If you want extra security at your door or simply have a family member hard of hearing, this is a great addition. I would have no problem purchasing this item again.

I purchased this for my elderly mother...it worked great for the first 2 weeks. Then it started going off on its own...which is odd because the door it was on didn't catch any wind or anything that would cause motion...so it had a mind of its own. Because my mom doesn't walk fast any longer, it was hard for her to rush over and shut the loud alarm off...so it got tossed in a drawer and will probably stay there. Once it started to malfunction, my mom didn't trust it anymore.

This is perfect if you want to protect your back door. The alarm is very loud and we are keeping the chimes on for now while we are in the house, but when we go out of the house, we set it to alarm. The alarm is extremely loud, but thankfully goes off after 20 seconds, so that's good, because it will chase the "would be" intruder away, and you won't be getting calls from your neighbors, telling you to come home to turn it off. When we are home, the chime alerts us if someone is at the door and it is not as frightening as the alarm.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Trixie Good little door alarm
This is a small door alarm that hangs on door knob. It goes off when moved. It is pretty loud and also has an option for chime instead of alarm. When turned on you get 10 seconds or so to hang it before it sensitizes. However, when you try to turn it off, it is impossible to do so without setting it off. The words along the setting button (chime/off/alarm) are very small and hard to read so you will have to memorize which way to push it to disarm it. The one thing that disappoints is the cover for the batteries has little plastic guide pieces that bend and break very easily and result in the cover not locking into place. Ours frequently falls off. We may have to tape it shut. For the money, I think it is a pretty good product.

We live near a well traveled highway which is frequented by heavy trucks. The vibration from a truck set the alarm off. During a storm, a tree limb fell on our porch setting an alarm off. Other than that, if you have a steady hand and a steady door, they're a good value. We intend to take one with us on vacation. The alarm has 2 settings: a high shrill and a door bell type.
