Passers-by won’t even know it’s there. “I spent hours going through reviews for these types of products, and I ended up picking this particular brand/model,” says a smart customer. “Love the receiver – it looks nice, sounds good, has adjustable volume, etc. The transmitter isn’t the prettiest, but I think it helps to make it less noticeable. So I screwed mine on a shelf and screwed it to a tree and then covered the case with camouflage tape so it really isn’t that visible.” He adds an extremely important detail: “False alarm? None.”

“Worked perfectly right out of the box,” another happy shopper testified. “It has a few dozen different tones, from police siren to lullaby to just chirping. Loud enough at full volume that I have it in the basement and I can hear it well enough upstairs.”

So go on those summer vacations – your house will be just fine.
