It is known that in most cases, crooks are looking for an easy target to break into. Having a large dog in the home takes that ease away from a thief and he is likely to look elsewhere for an easier home or office to break into. Using an electronic version of a dog barking gives you the protection without having to care for a real dog.
I retired from our local police department in 2009 and I decided to continue to help people live safer and more secure lives. I wanted to do this by using information and selling affordable products on the internet.
While I was searching I saw adds for Electronic Barking Dog Alarms and I wondered what they were and how they worked. I researched what the barking watchdog alarm was all about and checked for the best for my product list.
I found a number of electronic barking watchdog alarms for people that don’t want the worry of caring for a live dog. I researched different types of barking alarms and ultimately chose what is the best option for home and office security.
To back up a little; there are a number of barking alarms on the market, including a type that hangs on a door knob and senses when the knob is touched. The door knob must be metal and not all knobs are the type you can easily hang the product on. Another type attaches to a door brace and barks if the door is shaken or pushed. Others are similar to the unit I found to be the best, however none of these featured a remote control and you can’t add sensors to the expand their function.
In 2010, I found that the best barking dog alarm is made under the brand name of HomeSafe and in Late 2013, this same identical unit became available under the brand name of StreetWise and later another brand of SafeFamilyLife. These professional units use microwave radar technology to see through a wood; glass; brick; plastic; and more. They are designed to be placed inside a building and have a five inch speaker with enough wattage to sound like a real dog from outside. It is real enough that Animal Control officers have been known to come to an owner’s home to ask if their dog had a license. No license is needed for this electronic dog.
These alarms can not see through metal, but the alarm can be placed at an angle around the metal. Add on sensors can also be used to get around any metal that could block the microwave sensor in the main unit. Some can sense movement before the protected area is even reached. Settings on the main unit include barking, chime, or siren and arming the alarm can be done on the main unit, or with an included remote control.
Additional remote controls and sensors are a unique feature that I found only on the HomeSafe SafeFamilyLife and StreetWise units. These main units can be expanded by adding HomeSafe wireless remote controls, movement sensors, and door/vibration sensors. The door sensor can even be expanded to windows and has its own switchable small siren. A mix of up to sixteen of these sensors and/or remote controls can be added to these three brands of Barking Dog Alarms.
These sensors can be added wirelessly to rooms outside the detection area of the main barking dog alarm unit and the adjustable motion sensor can be mounted outside at a considerable distance from the main unit. They are matched to the barking dog alarm to make a complete closed system of protection. Even if your door or wall is made of metal, these sensors can be used to get around that problem.
We use our system to announce that someone is near our door even if we are at home. This lets the outsider know that there is protection inside and that we have been alerted.
Each of these units include a remote control. This allows you to arm and disarm the alarm from anywhere within 20 to 60 feet or more of the main unit. There is also a panic button on this remote control. When pushed the alarm goes into a siren alarm.
These are great barking dog units and there is no walking, extra cost for feeding, or cleanup involved.
