    Prepping: trip alarms

    So I bought 4 of these

    ASR Tactical Trip Wire Perimeter Alarm Signaling Device Early Warning Security System Amazon.com: ASR Tactical Trip Wire Perimeter Alarm Anti-Intruder Early Warning Security System, 4PK : Sports Outdoors

    I don't have a specific scenario in which I would use them. But generally at home entrance ways or around a small outdoor sleeping spot. They fire a shotgun primer.


    Any experience with such things? I also have loud electronic devices of comparable size thar are triggered similarly... a pull on the device.


    I guess I simply want to be woken if an intruder is approaching. Outside, I'm thinking that animals could trip the alarm.

    Prepping.
    I'm referring to the lawless days when thugs have made their way to the country side neighbourhoods.

    A shotgun primer is really loud! I noticed that you'll need to supply your own trip wire. It just looks too much like a gizmo to be effective at anything.

    We used concertina wire and beer/soda cans in the military. No experience with that device.
