Replace batteries every few months,door used by 400 + per month..I put a new battery in today and one of the wires came loose to the battery connection so I temporary repaired it and was happy to find they steel make them, on my way to buy 2 more.

      I have had one of these alarms for over 8 yrs and this yr I have to replace it because it stopped working. I have no complaints. We used it on our back door for when our niece and nephew stay over. I never have to worry about them trying to sneak to the pool.

        Comments about RadioShack Door Alarm with Keypad:

        Real junk. The instructions were never proof read and make little sense. The code does not set or reset and the alarm can only be shut off by removing the battery. Burglaries in my complex mandate an alarm system...but not this one. I will be returning this product later today.

        Comments about RadioShack Door Alarm with Keypad:

        I purchased two units eight months ago. Very reliable product. Don't understand why anyone would consider the alarm difficult to use, or not reliable. Would advise attaching the units with screws and not the glue pad because the pads can loosen and fall off (Mine fell to the floor in the middle of the night and scared me to death.) I appreciate the decible level because it warns neighbors of a break-in and is a great deterent to criminals. Plan to purchase two more for my shop building.

        Comments about RadioShack Door Alarm with Keypad:

        Burglars attempted to break into our house while we were gone. This loud door alarm sounded causing the burglars to flee, but not before neighbors noticed. Two of the three culprits were arrested and nothing was stolen from our house (although the door was damaged).

        Clear and easy to follow instructions. Installed in less than 10 mintues. Will be using in my shed (which remains locked). Set it on the 8 second delay to give even more of a surprise to a would-be thief.

          I am very pleased with this product. It lasted two years before the switch broke.

            Reliable.

            But after a couple of years in use, you have to replace it.

            No parts to replace.

            The store does not carry them.

              Comments about RadioShack Door Alarm with Keypad:

              Installation and setup were a snap. Had the unit up and running in 15 minutes with minimal tools. This thing is almost painfully loud, I will hear it. It was easy to program in the same code I use on my house security panel. Should work great on the shed door where I store my motorcycles in the winter. This is a versatile little unit, definitely not a "one trick pony".

              Comments about RadioShack Door Alarm with Keypad:

              I've gone through three of these in the past two years, and am about to purchase my fourth (I can't find any similar alternatives. I save the box and receipt now when I buy them!) The positives are that it's cost-effective, fairly easy to install, and it is a unique product. (The latter can also be a con too, because there isn't a lot out there to choose from, if you don't care for this product.) While it's good for protecting kids or elders near stairs (young kids and elders w/dementia will likely have difficulty turning it off), interior doors, keeping service providers out of certain rooms, etc, the main con is that it's not well-made. As a result, it's not for "serious" security needs. It's too easy for the wrong person to disarm. An intruder could easily remove the unit, flip it over and hit the Reset button, and there's no way to prevent this. The switch (from off to alarm to chime) breaks very easily if used daily, and then the code must be punched in each time you open the door. If you don't shut the door firmly, or if your interior door accidentally opens by suction, the alarm will go off, and it's LOUD. When the switch breaks, and requires you to punch the code in each time you open the door, you have to line up the sensor and keypad exactly, or the code will not register. The eight seconds is much too short of a time to disarm. As one person pointed out, it takes concentration and fast action to type it in. When the alarm is at the top of a staircase for example, it's irritating to have to put everything down, step through the door, disarm, then pick everything up again. Also, I've found that even if all is lined up, the code doesn't always register the first time I type it in, and requires me to enter at least the first two digits of the code again, before it kicks in. The keypad buttons are also very small, and the design starting with zero instead of one makes it difficult to type in the code fast. So it does have a lot of drawbacks. It's the only one of its kind, though, that I can find. They used to make them a lot stronger, but like everything, the materials have become cheaper in quality over the years, while the cost continues to rise.
