As a cheap burglar-deterrent, i think these are great! They aren't loud enough to wake the neighbours, BUT you'll hear if a door gets opened at night, and the noise would certainly scare off an opportunistic burglar. Also they have a slow flashing light while on - so ask yourself, would you break into a door with a flashing light? - or would you move on to the next house?). Easy to fit (they come with cut-to-size double-sided sticky pads), takes 4 LR44 batteries (included with alarms, although one of ours had flat batteries on arrival - but packs of 10 Duracells available on Amazon for under a fiver).

On the downside, the on/off switch is under the battery cover, so you'll probably end up leaving the cover off - this makes them not really a full, total-security solution - but to stop someone nipping in your front door, grabbing a handbag or carkeys, and legging it.....i think they're a good compromise!

Seem to be doing the job as they make a loud noise when you open the door when forgetting to turn them off!! Battery life not as good as I would have liked. Had to replace them after a couple of months Easy to fit, as long as your door and frame are a flush fitting. Mine are not and needed a slim piece of wood gluing onto the frame to bring them both into line. No complaints at all.

i would of loved this item but its getting an okay because it takes 4x watch type batteries in each alarm and costs too much to replace, ive since bought other ones that take 2x aa batteries and do the same job for cheaper.

Pretty happy with these.
Easy to install.
They work.
Not incredibly loud unless you're stood right next to them.
Batteries last a couple of months before need replacing.
Not sure they'd wake you up in the night, but would certainly scare off anyone trying to get in the door/window where they're installed.

It does what is required... but having the switch on/off inside the battery box is quite a pain and make the usability of this device nearly impossible.
Unless you will never want to switch it on/off.

These alarms arrived promptly they certainly hapve a piercing alarm and I think are quite adequate to put on a window or door for a deterrent. The one criticism I have is they came with two small pieces of adhesive tape for both.

Bought these for a little extra peace of mind. They are very easy to install, they were a good price and boy are they loud!

Definitely worth buying and wouldnt hesitate to buy again or recommend to others.

It arrived promptly but I was a little disappointed!
The sound isn't as good as the door handle alarms and more difficult to turn off as you have to take off cover for some this could be of benefit but not when using it on a door as the sound does affect the dogs and they start crying.
