Pros & Cons
The GE 51107 Smart Home Wireless Alarm System Kit is a 120-decibel alarm that sounds loud enough to alert anyone when a window or door is opened. This system is easy to install with no wiring necessary. The big door alarm uses a 4-digit keypad to set the security code for arming/disarming and an alarm delay feature that avoids false triggering. In the 'Away' mode - it gives 45 seconds to exit the house after arming the system. This alarm needs to be deactivated within 30 seconds after getting back home with the custom 4 digit code. The 30-second delay helps to eliminate false triggering of the alarm. In ‘Home’ mode - simply select the home mode option for an instant alarm.
When not in 'Alarm' mode, all the alarms in the Alarm Kit offer a chime setting that alerts each time a door is opened. This is a great safety feature if you have small children that may make their way outside unsupervised. Each window alarm features an on/off/chime switch for easy operation and a battery-test switch for checking battery life. Each window alarm requires four LR44 batteries (included) that last up to a year and the door alarm requires 3 AAA batteries (sold separately).
However, many reviewers faced issues when trying to get this unit work on metal doors or frames and also complained about the big door units malfunctioning.
Overall, the GE 51107 Smart Home Wireless Alarm System Kit is simple-to-use and cost-effective security solution that helps protect against home invasions. It is a recommended product from a trusted brand with affordable price and backed with 1 year limited warranty.
