The summer just before I left for college both my folks were ecstatic and terrified simultaneously. They were excited given that I was accepted in Brown University and was on my way to becoming a journalist. They were terrified however that I will be living far away from home in a dorm with individuals whom I had no idea what were really like.
With the latter in mind they informed me that they will be looking at portable door alarms on the web so I can carry one with me to the university. I could not find it in my heart to disagree and that was exactly what they did precisely.
Door alarms are security gadgets that inform you every time a stranger goes into your own room or house. When triggered the alarms are set off calling the interest of men and women nearby to help you.
My dad wanted to obtain a dual purpose 120dB alarm. You can simply hang it on the doorknob. And if anybody touches the doorknob from the outside the alarm is going to instantly sound off.
I was not immediately sold on the idea so he suggested even more that we get a 130dB personal alarm with light. It may be turned into a door alarm by using the window or door attachment that comes along with it. Likewise it possesses flashing lights to get others attention that something is amiss.
My mom ultimately said to us to obtain a 115dB door stop alarm. It helps prevent the door from being opened as well as is going to blare out whenever somebody tries to do so. It features a movement sensor the sensitivity settings of which may be adjusted in order to determine if the alarm has been tampered with.
I sided with my moms choice of a door alarm. They ordered the product and the moment it was shipped they had me pack it within my bag.
When I reached Brown I was surprised that most of the students also had portable door alarms with them. I guess that parents truly do know best in terms of their kids safety.
