Doberman Security Motion Detector- It works *condition red at 11:30 at night
My wife and I purchased a Doberman Security motion detector and have it set up at the top of the stairs outside our room. Apparently its pretty sensitive and it WILL wake you up from a dead sleep. My wife has been under the weather so we passed out around 8:30 last night. I sleep with my g 26 next to my bed and her mossberg 510 is next to her. At around 11:30 last night this god awful alarm wakes me up from a dead sleep and I will say it is the scariest sound in the world. I have never felt an adrenaline rush like it. I woke up and grabbed my gun and had it trained on the door just waiting. Even with the pitch black of our room I swear it was as bright as day and the night sights were lit up like no other. I listened intently as my wife was dialing 911 in case something happened. After 30 seconds the alarm went off and I sat there and listened for another 30 seconds. My dog was not reacting (he sleeps with us) so I figured it was all clear. Grabbed my sure fire and systematically began to clear the house. We live in a 2 floor town home so I opened my door and saw none of the doors upstairs were open so I go downstairs slowly and realize that none of the downstairs doberman alarms had gone off on the door and there was nothing open. I go back upstairs only to notice a giant cock-roach at the corner of the wall/ ceiling just above the motion alarm.... I guess it walked across the beam and set it off... I have never been in a situation like that and I hope I am never ever again in a real life situation that will put me like that. Scariest moment ever...
Doberman security 100DB alarm is sensitive and works. Wakes you up thats for sure
Really put things in perspective for me on how I would react should something happen
Keep in mind-
Have a bright light on you, my surefire made the house bright as day.
Want to know-
How many of you have been in a similar situation to find out it was a false alarm? How many of you would have gone about the situation? I heard no footsteps, running, talking, no one busted my bed room door down. Would you have gone out the door after waiting and assessing the situation? Should my wife had immediately called the police even though it was nothing? Any and ALL input would be much appreciated.
Note- We have no children, 1 dog that sleeps with us. He is a Beagle mix. All bottom floor exterior doors and windows have doberman security magnetic opening alarms on them and the top of the stairs has the motion detector.

I'd rather be lucky than good any day

Alarms which prove excessively sensitive won't be used because they become a pain.
I sort of doubt it was the roach that it detected, but false alarms do happen ---"ghosts" aka electrical
The up side of suffering through a few false ones is you learn to be a bit calmer in your
Tip-- put some other inexpensive motion detector in the same general area. If only one
goes off it is likely a false alarm. At least you won't be jumping out of your skin. There are plenty
of inexpensive ones that will chime or alarm, or turn on a light. Two detectors covering one
area can prevent a "heart attack."

Can you imagine what would've happened had that roach flown over and landed on your face/head?

A giant cockroach is still a decently small target...How many shots did it take you to kill it?

It's not a good idea to leave uncleared rooms behind you. Glad you're OK.

Glad you and your family are okay. What was the correspondence between your wife and the police? Did she just mention that you had a bump in the night? Did they send a black and white over? Also, just food for thought (like Hoganbeg stated), it's not good to leave uncleared rooms behind you. Someone could've easily been inside after they closed the door behind them when they heard the alarm go off. Stay safe!

I got the impression from his post that she had dialed, but hadn't yet called. Maybe that's not the case, but that's how I read it.

Been thinking about getting a pair of these for my doors. I already have motion lights that turn on if you walk in either door, and the only route to my bedroom is a 12-foot "fatal funnel" leading to my dark pit.
My problem is that I'm a log of a sleeper, but 100db sounds adequate.haha
As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper

In my opinion the real threat is the ROACH!
Here in FL. they're called Palmetto bugs cause they have wings and fly...this is what the wife says.
Me...a roach is a roach!
