Schlage launches new alarmed lock

BY HBSDEALER Staff

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 homedepot.com , select Home Depot stores, Lowes.com, Amazon.com, and Build.com. The alarmed lock will be available later in 2012 at Lowe’s stores.

A division of Ingersoll Rand, Schlage is marketing the new product as both a burglar alarm and a monitor for small children, elderly parents and special needs family members. Designed to fit on existing pre-drilled doors, it installs with just a screwdriver, requiring no wiring. It operates on two AAA batteries, which are included.

Pretty awesome how far home alarm systems have come in the last ten years! When I got my first ADT system in the 90's, it was a basic set up and was quite faulty, as my dog somehow triggered a motion sensor by the front door, even though dogs were supposed to be "too short" to hit the sensor. I could only guess that he was salsa dancing in the dark while we slept upstairs.

It seems there is a growing demand for more and more sophisticated alarm systems and home security systems. For these DIY products, I think the consumer need to have a little technical knowledge before knowing how to install them.

I have heard that security
I have heard that security systems that rely on detecting vibrations or motion can be overly sensitive. Someone when the wind blows, causing the door to shake or when a pet runs across the room, the alarm sounds and it can be very inconvenient it it happens too often.
