Essential Info

Anyone with kids knows that even the most diligently supervised child can walk in or out of an unlatched gate without being noticed. But equip your gate with a Programmable Gate Alarm and a loud 120dB siren will warn you when it has been opened, so you can intervene BEFORE your kids fall into the uncovered pool or run into the busy street. But child safety isn't the only reason you could benefit from this security device. It can also be used to deter burglars or other unwanted trespassers that attempt to gain access to your yard. Or if you have dogs that know how to unlatch the gate, this alarm is great for catching them in the act.

Authorized users can easily bypass the alarm by pressing a single button, or by entering a 4-digit pass code on the keypad (user-programmable). When successfully de-activated, a flashing LED provides visual confirmation and you'll have 30 seconds to open the gate and close it again without tripping the alarm. The alarm's pass code is perfect for keeping trespassers away while giving access to authorized users like gardeners, pool boys, etc. Uses 6 AA batteries, (sold separately). The alarm chirps once every 60 seconds when batteries run low.

    Works well. Only drawback is there's no way to temporarily de-activate without dismantling. This would be handy if you need to have the gate open for more than 7 or 15 seconds at a time. Otherwise, the device works well, as advertised.
    ANTHONY -- carolinesprings, XX   1/23/2011
    Very Speedy Delivery and no Hassles Item was as advertised easy to use and doing the job well.Good value too.
    JOHN -- wallingford, CT   7/7/2007
    It was very simple to install, and the best part about it is that the alarm is very loud.
    PALMER -- plainville, MA   6/29/2007
    I received the item quickly and works as advertised. Very pleased with the product and Smarthome.
    KARL -- knoxville, TN   3/26/2007
    One way to improve this product would be to provide some type of cut off or simple disable code for when the unit is not in use or needed
    JOHN R -- ellensburg, WA   1/13/2007
    The item was as advertised and shipped promptly. I have purchased before from smarthome and have always been happy with the experience.
    SHARON -- new berlin, WI   11/20/2006
    the gate alarms work well and construction of the product is adequate
    T.R. -- beaverton, OR   1/18/2005
    The alarms work fine. The only comment I would make is that the plastic tie straps that come with them to attached to the gate posts are weak. The broke easily. I had to use wire that I bought elsewhere to mount the magnets to the gateposts.
