Alarm exactly as expected - colour, size etc. Tested it when it arrived and it emits a deafening alarm - enough to scare anyone off. Also has a very handy torch incorporated into it. Bought for my daughter at Uni in London - sincerely hope she never has cause to activate it but it has made me feel better knowing she has it with her.
Been advised to buy one of these for daughter who is going to study overseas which in itself is a sorry state of affairs. The unit is small, sturdy construction and easy to use. I bought this one because of the police spec endorsement and because it was the loudest available. With the original batteries it was not 140db according to the phone app I tested it with - maybe at source it is but I hesitate to suggest trying to keep it at an attackers ear to prove a point. Fresh batteries has resulted in the sound of the alarm becoming louder. Loud enough to severely inconvenience someone. I hope. As for value for money, I've marked it as 5 based on the assumption that it will do it's bit if needed and then it will be worth every penny and some. At this time it has only been tested in the home and it has worked without issue.
This came today and I hot my mum to test it out. It is not as loud as I expected and sounds very similar if not identical to a car alarm D: I'm not sure that this will alert people but I guess I will take it with me anyways as I hope I don't have to use it but if I do then I will have to hope someone will recognise the sound...
Other than that though it is a good size that fits in your hand and will be easy to carry and the colour is as pictured.
Got this for my mum as there was an incident near her home. She's not had to use it but it gives that little bit of confidence that she needed. Not to big and easy to cary so if needed it should be ready to use.
Bought this when I moved from the countryside into the city for university, more for peace of mind than anything else as I always carry it in my handbag within easy reach. It comes just as pictured and does make some serious noise when activated. I don't really use the torch feature but others may find it quite handy.
