This alarm is so simple to set up, I cut the wire and rewired it to the shed door contact that was already in place wired from the garage, when the alarm system that I had gave up, so that the control is in the garage, two feet away, no problems.
I bought this alarm a few years ago and it was easy to install and easy to use. I do still occasionally forget about it when I go into the shed but the ear splitting screech soon reminds me it is there! At 2.00 this morning thieves tried to break into my shed. Thanks to careful placement of the magnetic switches the alarm went off when they pulled at the top of the shed door. They hadn’t even got round to trying to lever the door open (I have bolted hasps and chunky padlock fitted) and the loud alarm scared them off with no damage and nothing taken. Because the alarm went off and woke me up (even through double glazed windows) I managed to call the police very quickly and they were on the scene in 20 minutes with a tracker dog. The dog picked up a scent and took the police to a taxi that had been broken into. I do not know if they caught anyone though. I am about to build another shed for our bikes and will definitely be fitting another of these alarms.
Fab item - reliable and keeps my sheds secure. would recomend easy to fit and use.
its a brilliant security system
We installed one of these on our Garage Door Sunday. On Wednesday night we had an attempted break-in. The alarm performed perfectly and scared the intruders away. Most impressed in this simple, yet effective device!
Small, straightforward and very loud !
This is a great little alarm and is very loud indeed. For the technically inclined, the door contact is a normally closed reed switch so the alarm can be adapted to use any kind of break-on-entry alarm sensor. I wanted to make a wire loop alarm for protecting bikes left in our caravan awning. I removed the reed switch and wired in a loop of wire with a plug and socket half way round so that it could be threaded through the bike frames and would alarm if cut or disconnected. It worked great.
Great little device operated by the magnetic switch. Very loud when tripped in the alarm mode. Also has ding-dong function.
The wire between the numerical pad and door sensor Is very short (20cm) so this alarm is not any use if you need to have the sensor at the top of the door as the keypad will need to be mounted too high. This situation could occur if you have double opening shed doors unless you can mount the keypad on the inside of one of the doors.
A great little deterrent, easy to set up and use, would recommend this item
