This budget alarm system uses your phone app to send alerts when a door or window is opened (but not when they're closed). We like that the alarm is easy to setup, but the main problem is the app's pretty junky.

What We like

The motion sensor alarm is easy to install, and it’s as easy to set up as a motion sensor. But most reviewers said the battery cover is not waterproof, so we recommend either keeping this alarm in a covered place or making sure there is adequate access to change the battery.
