Pod is an alternative to whole-house security

The Pod personal security alarm is designed to give you peace of mind without relying on a whole-house security system.

Hang the Pod from a door or clip it to your backpack or travel bag. The pocket-size device has a siren and movement and vibration sensors to let you know if someone tampers with your entry door or your belongings. It also has a panic button so you can get someone’s attention if you need help en route to your destination. Flash the built-in LED light when passing through dark areas. $30 at www.firstalertstore.com.
