Alarm Envy or Just a Good Idea




Article by: Michael Russell

I like new interesting electronic gadgets. They seem to have a magnetic pull for me. For a time I regularly frequented an electronics store in town called Radio Shack. They carried a huge variety of electronic products. , Test Fidelity with a Spy Phone One day I spotted a tiny infrared battery operated alarm , Blackout - Get Ready For A Power Failure! being displayed. It cost about $30.00, without the battery. The 9 volt batteries this item used, could run up to $5.00, if you chose to go for the high end Duracell alkaline type. That would give the alarm , Surveillance Equipment – The Assurance Of Security the longest operating life, per battery. So I bought the little infrared alarm. , Home Security - Low Cost s That Work

It was interesting learning how it worked, and what its limitations were. It had a sensor window , Missing Child: Don't Be The Next Statistic in front, which detected changes , Home Security in heat , Emergency - Gas Fire! placements, in a V shaped area ahead of the unit. The alarm , Facts And Misconceptions Of Pepper Spray had an on/off switch. It also had a 30 second delay feature , Safety Alert! - All the Predators Come Out After Dark to allow you to exit a room , Tropical Hurricane Storm Depression Florence with out triggering it, after you turned it on. The alarm , Is CCTV Video Equipment useful? detected movement by comparing the difference in value, between heat , Firearms And The Protection Of Family readings from one scan to the next. When movement was detected a piercing electronic, blaring noise was emitted.

The alarm , Test Fidelity with a Spy Phone was even sensitive enough to work through a windscreen. In summer , Burglar Proof your Windows there were sometimes people skulking around at night in front of the area where I lived. I found that by placing the alarm , How To Prevent Burglary in the front window, , Successfully Surviving a Natural Disaster and setting it to the door , Tropical Hurricane Storm Depression Florence bell setting it would ding dong if it detected someone sneaking around at night.

The next idea I had was to eliminate the battery from the alarm. , Blackout - Get Ready For A Power Failure! They were costly and the idea of attaching a 9 volt power , Security Cameras adapter to the alarm , Tropical Depression and Tropical Storm Joyce made sense. That way the alarm , Preparing for Hurricane Season could be plugged into a household , Home Security: Fire Safety electrical wall , Security Alarm System Motion Detectors socket, and be much more cost efficient. The adapter's direct current chord connector, needed to be modified slightly, since it was not designed specifically, to plug into the alarm's 9 volt battery connector. With this completed the alarm , Hurricane Shutters system worked great.

Later when I stared working at a gas , How to Choose a Deadbolt Lock for Your Home station. I found another use for the alarm. , Security Cameras The manager of the gas , Personal Protection and Your Vehicle station only scheduled one staff member to work per shift, during the slow seasons. , Best Places to Hide Valuables It was the sort of job where you have a lot of work to do. Serving customers and working the cash register was only a small part of the job. There was stalking the store area, baking pastries, cleaning inside , Building healthy homes: Want to secure the health and life of your family at home? and out.

The manager liked the idea so much that he asked if he could buy the alarm , Securing Your Home - Are Your Doors And Windows Really Safe? from me. Thinking it would be a good move to keep him happy, I reluctantly agreed to sell it for a bargain price.
