The PEPPERALARM is a burglar alarm system that sets out to be a little more...proactive, shall we say? Its creators call it "The Robber Stopper!" and while they don't include any testimonials from robbers the PEPPERALARM has stopped on their website, I feel like being greeted with a siren, strobe light, and face full of pepper spray upon break-in would alter at least my own thieving plans.
PEPPERALARM contends that burglars hit with its cloud of pepper spray will be too debilitated with choking, blindness, and all-around discomfort to have the wherewithal to carry out their mission, and will instead GTFO. Immediately and empty-handed.
The PEPPERALARM doesn't come with pepper spray, but will accommodate various sizes of flip top canisters you can buy separately, and according to preference. It's a wireless, no contract, no monthly monitoring fee system the company says takes less than 15 minutes to install. Individuals can arm / disarm it with included remote wireless key fobs.
The PEPPERALARM is intended for indoor applications, but isn't limited to homes / offices / stores. You can also install one in the back of a service vehicle, storage locker, workshop and garage, and RV and trailer.
The PEPPERALARM system has a built-in PIR motion detector that, when armed, determines when to unleash the misty beast. Additional features include:
- PANIC (hold-up) mode capability
- Concealed emergency shut off switch
- Adjustable ENTRY time delay
- 90-second EXIT time delay
- Battery operated
- Low battery indicator
- Automatic reset
- Load of pepper spray canister and batteries without tools
The PEPPERALARM is FCC-certified.
