sadly if you have an animal in your house (cat, dog) this wouldn't work so well is my thoughts...
great idea for hotel rooms though...
There is a laser version that my brother uses, and instead of motion it has to have the beam broken. He puts one down the long wall where all of his
windows are, and one corner to corner in the central room, above the level a cat would walk (just a little under waist height for a human). Similar
in price, you can buy multiple ones if you need to protect multiple windows or walls, or entry areas.
So, if anyone comes in through a window, or walks across that room, it sets off a screaming alarm, and then for the second part of Wrabbit's scenario,
he has a little safe by his bed with his 40 caliber in it, and he opens the safe when he goes to bed at night. Screaming alarm = 40 cal gun and 250lb
man hairy man going to check out the commotion. It seems like a pretty good combination of deterrrent and defense to me.
I have solid wood doors on the inside of my home, and a dog. If someone gets in the outside doors or windows, it will wake either me or the dog, and
they'll then have to contend with my solid wooden door on the bedroom, and I don't use a handgun for home defense, I use a Mossberg 12 guage pump,
with double pistol grip, and a 500,000 candle power xenon light, thumbswitch activated, and I load it with light shot, light shot, heavy shot, heavy
shot, slug, slug, slug. If someone gets in the outside door, then they have to contend with a blinding, disorienting light, a big dog, and flying
For hotel rooms, I always have my hand gun, and I've had a maid walk into my hotel room at 2 a.m. before. I heard the door unlock, I hopped up,
naked, grabbed the hand gun, and waited behind the door, as she walked into the room I put the gun to the back of her head, and she started
apologizing in Spanish, and after some cooperation and mutual spanglish, we eventually discovered that she had been staying in that room unbeknownst
to management, and the room was almost never rented out. She slept outside that night, probably with some wet pants, but I didn't tell the hotel
manager. I'm a very light sleeper, and I don't trust hotels, so I didn't need Wrabbit's alarm, but it would have been a GREAT time to have the alarm!
It would have worked perfectly.
