Product Description

''Product Features:''Police say a barking dog is an excellent way to deter burglars and this one never needs food, water, or to be taken for a walk. Rex is the ideal watchdog because he does what even the best living and breathing watchdog can't do (without some of the annoying problems that go with owning a dog). With his electronic radar eyes, Rex can "see" through thick doors, walls, and glass. And once his cord is plugged into any standard 110 VAC electrical outlet, he'll stay on duty around the clock, indefinitely. Rex can protect homes, apartments, mobile homes, RVs, jewelry stores, hotels, factories, warehouses, public and private buildings of virtually every kind. Choose any location indoors where you want to detect movement such as hidden behind the front door. Turn Rex on and he begins detecting. When movement is detected, Rex Plus will alert you with the sounds you have chosen. Rex Plus is the electronic watchdog that never sleeps! He will bark angrily as an intruder approaches or play soothing sounds of the rainforest to alert you to a visitor! Choose from four settings: continual tranquil sounds of the rainforest, alert sound of an angry and protective watchdog, soothing sounds to alert you of a guest's arrival, and alert sounds of both the angry watchdog and a warning siren.

Features:
  • Switch from watchdog mode to tranquil sounds of nature with a simple adjustment button.
  • Sense movement through walls, doors, and glass to alert you of a visitor's arrival.
  • Very Realistic - barking gets louder and more frequent as intruder gets closer.
  • Variable distance sensitivity (up to 30') as well as volume control.
  • Protection with none of the problems of owning a real dog.
Customer Reviews:
  • Works great!
    Make sure it is at the right distance. I guess when you listen long enough it sounds a little mechanical should make bark more random. But I would buy another....more info
  • LOVE IT
    I've had mine about 6 months. Sure, it takes a bit of time to position it just the way you want; sooo? Big deal if it barks when I'm leaving the house; I just say, "Guard the house." hahaha. Sounds just like a german shephard and scares the mailman.
    A cop friend of mine said that it's great for a single person living alone, and no burglar is going to waste their time trying to decide if it IS or if it ISN'T real, when they can go to the next house that DOESN'T have a dog....more info
  • Not as good as a real dog in burglar prevention.
    The electronic sound of a dog barking does not sound like a real dog. The sound is distorted and sounds electronic. It fools people initially, but if they hang around, they soon catch on that it is not a real dog. Perhaps it may be just enough to deter a burglar though, and that would make it worth it's expensive price.

    The device monitors an outside area, but it monitors the inside area even better. This means that everytime you go near it, even while inside the house, the alarm activates, which you don't really want it to do. I tried putting heavy books around the back and sides of it, but it still activated everytime I went near it while I was inside the house. Ideally, you would need to place it somewhere that you do not go near while you are at home, or else only activate it when you go away from home.

    The good news is you don't have to clean up after it or feed it, and it stops barking when you turn the juice off.

    It's very easy to set up, just plug it in and adjust the sensitivity and volume control knobs, that's it!

    Despite it's shortcomings, I may even buy another one for my side door as I am paranoid about burglars. It does have a wow factor when your neighbors learn about it. I don't know of anything else quite like it on the market....more info
