Cynthia writes, "I saw this brief article recently for a device that I commonly recommend to my consumers who either live alone or work in an environment where they are often interrupted by surprise. Some like it and others a startled by the piercing sound, but that is in fact what scares off intruders. Just thought I would share it with you in case you have not seen it or showcased it in your newsletter."
The unit is a wedge-shaped part that simply slides behind a closed door. When someone tries to come in, the wedge makes it more difficult to open the door and it emits a shrill alarm.

As Cynthia pointed out, the user should not have issues with a startling reflex at the loud noise. They should also be able to hear the alarm for it to be truly effective. This could also be beneficial to people who take care of individuals who tend to sleep walk or wander out of the house.
Cynthia found the wedge door alarm at the Hand Picked Gift Store online (http://www.handpickedgiftstore.com) for $19.95 (not including shipping and handling).
I was able to find a similar model on Amazon.com for $4.99 plus shipping and handling.
