Is long as your pet isn't to big! But then you won't need an alarm.

Wouldn't have been a problem during a power cut if it had been maintained/installed correctly, internal batteries should be of a size to stop the system falling over for around 24 hours, the amount I've seen with pp3 type capacity fitted!, or over 10 years old and people wonder why theirs, along with about 20 others in the neighbourhood, go off straight away on power outage.

Agree with Dougie the honeywell ones work well. We've used lots in farm workshops and they don't seem to be a problem with any reasonable sized rodent or farm cat.


At home, I've got an infinite wireless system with pet pir's and two cats (one of which is huge) and not yet had a problem

Seconded, I fit a good few alarms and always use texecom.

Their website is texe.com

The quad and the premier pet wise are both good. adjustable sensitivity on the detector.

You can also reduce false alarms by setting the double knock and the detector pulse count.
