Schlage has launched what it claims is the first and only alarmed lock aimed at the DIY market. Specifically engineered to detect vibration and motion at first contact with a door or handle, the alarmed lock is easily adjusted to a choice of settings that can be changed either day-to-day or over the years as security needs change.

The easy-to-install, battery-operated units cost approximately $99 and are available at , select Home Depot stores,,, and The alarmed lock will be available later in 2012 at Lowe’s stores.
