Inexpensive door window alarms

Are they worth it?

I may look into getting a few of the small inexpensive battery powered window and door alarms. They take up little room and can be installed throughout the house in about an hour. They come in two basic types the ones that make a contact and an alarm sounds and the other that sounds the alarm when the contact is broken.

If the situation does start to get a bit sketchy, and there is a rise in criminal activity and lawlessness, it might be nice to have that little extra bit of AA battery powered security.

We found some clearance alarms at a few of our local lowes,wm and menards,we always look at clearance stuff to find something useful,these were a pull string type that I attached to our windows and back door around the doorknob and with small eyehooks.they are loud and invisible from outside the house,very noisy and take 1 aa battery.just dont forget to unhook them when you open a door or window at night.I have not forgot to do that after the first few times.between them and our dog I will have enough time to get to my firearm.we do not have a dedicated alarm system,the last home we did that at our insurance went up because it was called an improvement.
