Easy to Setup and Ready to Go
The PIR Intruder Alarm is a standalone PIR motion detector alarm with built in siren. This alarm has a programmable 3 digit security PIN to deactivate the alarm and an entrance and exit delay to give you the time to arm and disarm it. Easy and quick setup as the PIR Intruder Alarm is battery operated - batteries not included (Order Code L42AL) with optional mains power (mains adapter not included).

Functions of the alarm
The PIR Intruder Alarm can be used as either an alarm or in chime mode to account for visitors. With a 10m detection distance at an angle of 89 degrees this alarm is ideal for entrance and exits as well as any restricted areas. The Alarm panel also contains a panic function immediately setting off the alarm in an emergency. The PIR intruder alarm can be used for anything from letting you know when a customer is coming through a door to warning an intruder away from a garage or shed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the price this is a very good bit of kit. Easy to use easy to install and very loud alarm. You can configure all the time and delay functions and alarm automatically resets if it should go off accidently after a 60 seconds re arming itself. I am yet to see how the battaryies fair as I have only had it for a few days but very impressed. Enough to make any intruder run!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was so pleased with this alarm that I bought a second one. They are well made and the batteries last for ages. Uses have included scaring away cats from our terrace, alarm for a shed, chime for the front door (when kids were lurking there). We had some friends who were broken into while they were in their house. This would give great peace of mind if you were worried about that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought this item for a beach hut that has no mains electric. It really fit for this purpose, and would scare any intruders. All modes of this work well, and is easy to program. Well worth the money. Cheers Phil
