Rated 5 out of 5Â 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 out of 5Â 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 4 out of 5Â 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 5 out of 5Â by MrsBowe Deserves better overall reviews
I've tried to edit my review and can't seem to. I have 2 of these and a mongrel brand on our cellar door. The Doberman with remote is a great product. I believe the low reviews are because of the remote not working. My remote does not work either - never did from the get go.
HOWEVER, I still consider this unit a 5 star product because the alarm is so loud, my closest neighbors, better than 300 yards, away hear this when the door is opened unexpectedly. So if you are arming your doors to alert you to an impaired family member that tends to wander - especially in the night - I have to still stand by my 5 star review of this unit.
The only improvement I'd like to see would be to have screw brackets, not tape, to hold in place. We had one experience when the door was opened in the middle of the night and my husband pulled it off the door jamb (unharmed and easily put back in place). Also, until the remote can be improved, maybe it shouldn't be offered.
As for the mongrel unit on the cellar door, it's junk. I bought a door chain with a key lock at Home Depot that keeps the cellar door safely closed.
