Wanted: Stand Alone - no entry delay motion alarm.

Hello All,

I am trying to purchase a Stand Alone wireless Motion Alarm with a NO ENTRY DELAY setting or function. I want it to go off immediately upon sensing motion. Anyone know of any?

I live in a 2 story duplex and am trying to do a couple of things to have a higher sense of security. I am a proud handgun owner but in case an intrusion occurs i would like to be immediately notified. Most wall mount stand alone motion detectors i see in stores like wal-mart, radio shack, and online have 5-30 second entry delays... my concern is that by that time the intruder could be upstairs and in my bedroom before the alarm sounds.

I do not have any pets, and will only set this alarm when going to sleep at night. I understand that motion sensors are a second line of defense and am currently working on other security features such as exterior motion lights, window alarm sensors, signs etc.

Basically I am not financially committed to a full alarm system, and while i am concerned about daytime burglaries my primary concern is defending myself and my family in the event of a nighttime intrusion.

Thanks for any help...

Basically, you are talking about a mass market type of portable motion sensor. Really, a 5 second delay isn't very much (if you live in such a rough area that 5 seconds makes a difference, you really need to look at a much higher grade of device...). The minimum delay is to give you enough time to turn the darned thing off without having it blaring in your ear, but I'm pretty sure that there are models that can be set to no delay at all.

Websearch using the phrase: "portable motion detector alarm"

Yeah you are right about the 'if its that rough i should have an alarm...'

I've been searching for a while for the 'no delay' type and have had no luck so far... most product descriptions don't tell you what the delay is and you would have to buy it to find out.
