Looking for ways to better your home security as we go into fall and winter? Smart idea. Other than owning the best home security system and lots of smart technology to trick intruders into thinking you are home 24/7, there is another buy that can help. And, it's discounted to just $8.99 at Amazon. That's peace of mind for a very low price.

We've found a very clever door handle alarm which is sold at Amazon. Simply enough, you turn this device on, pop it on your door handle (inside your home) and it alarms when your handle is touched from the other side. Not just that but when it alarms, it's a very loud 110dB so it'll be sure to wake you (and possibly your neighbors) up. The alarm is actually audible from two and a half blocks away...

Anyway, this home security buy is great. It's cheap, cheerful, and easy to use. It has three settings – off, alarm, chime – while it has a 30-second delay to prevent immediate false triggering. Put it in chime mode when you have people coming and going – the kids, guests, your parents. All you need to power it is three AAA batteries, too. So it'll even work during power outages.
