This review is from: Swann SW351-CAC Ceiling Alarm with Remote
Cons: -VERY long wait time in alarm mode (30 seconds) and no way to change
Other Thoughts: It makes a very effective entry chime but I don't think it would be very effective for security (Unless you had very tall ceilings). It makes a rather loud chirp when you trip the censor in alarm mode, and then waits 30 seconds to set off the alarm, more than enough time to walk over, grab a chair, and pull its batteries. The mode (alarm/chime) switch is on the keychain which is nice, but it seems to be too easy to accidentally change. Likely leading to some very annoying accidental alarms. The keychain remote also has a pretty limited field of view, you have to be pretty much below the alarm to Arm/Disarm. It may also have some long term issues (the remote seems a bit too easy to break/damage, battery life?)
