Safeguard yourself and your belongings at home or on-the-go with the First Alert PA100 Protection on Demand Personal Security Alarm. Offering security in the palm of your hand, the POD device functions as a bag alarm, door alarm, panic alarm and LED flashlight. To use the POD as a bag alarm or to protect belongings, simply press the button once and use the included lanyard to attach the device to your purse, suitcase, stroller or computer bag in public. The loud 100-dB alarm and flashing LED may deter potential thieves and draw attention from local security. This is ideal for airport travelers or shopping with a purse in your cart.
The POD is also an effective motion detection door alarm. Press the button twice to set up delay mode. This allows 20-seconds to secure the POD to the interior of your door handle and exit the room. Because the POD is the only device to contain dual sensing technologies - an accelerometer to detect tilt and rotation and magnetometer to detect linear movement - it is highly sensitive to the door being opened quickly or gently edged open by intruders. The 20-second entry delay gives you time to reenter yourself without setting off the alarm in error. The POD also features a panic alarm with a 100-dB instant siren and LED flashlight to illuminate your surroundings in dark areas like parking lots or doorways. The compact and lightweight unit measures 3.2-inches by 1.8-inches by 1-inch. The POD includes (1) alarm, (1) CR2 long-life lithium battery, lanyard and manual. The First Alert PA100 POD Personal Security Alarm comes with a 1-year limited warranty.
This unique security alarm contains Intelligent E-Compass Sensor Technology that detects both touch and motion. The accelerometer detects tilt and rotation while the magnetometer detects linear movement. This alarm still sounds when the door swings open even if it doesn't move, other devices include only one sensor that detects vibration or impact leaving you vulnerable.

I was quite eager to use the product. I had a learning time, but I feel that I know how it works on my entry door. The loud sound will ward off any would be theft and now I can be sure to get rental insurance this will help.

I had given this to a grand-daughter who works in Chicago, takes a bus to the train station and goes home to Woodstock. It was the ideal gift.And I bought from a local Company. Two plus reasons…..
Could not be more pleased! - 12/29/2014
Reviewer: Marsha Koepp
Gave 3 granddaughters these alarms for Christmas and they were thrilled to get them! One lives in Manhattan, another is in college, and the third will go to college in August. They are so small and lightweight, yet they provide enough light and loud noise to make you feel like they would be invaluable in a problem situation.

I needed an alert system for a door with easy access to be broken into. Once I put this amazing little security system on my door I now sleep like a baby knowing no one can surprise me. I have now installed one on all of my doors.

Reviewer: Jeremy Timmons
Originally purchased 1 for my daughter and than I got one for myself. The accuracy of the motion detection is astounding so I use it for hotel door entry detection when I am traveling. Works great.
