An alarmed lock looks and feels like a normal lock however it has an anti-tamper 120dB alarm built into the locking body. This anti-tamper alarm shrieks if the lock itself is tampered with or disturbed by the would-be thief. This alarm is loud enough to be heard up to 500 meters away which is sure to scare off the thief and alert you to the situation.
The alarmed lock looks and functions similarly to a regular lock however the alarmed locks have a 120dB anti-tamper alarm built into the lock itself. This is triggered when the lock is disturbed or tampered with. Once triggered the alarm shrieks for 30 seconds which can be heard up to 500 meters away.
The lock can be locked and unlocked without arming the alarm if the user wishes to do so and the alarm is armed and unarmed by a twist of the key within the key barrel.
The main benefit of using an alarmed lock is that you are increasing the security layers by only using a single device. The anti-tamper alarm in conjunction with the physical lock creates two layers: the audible and the physical in the fight against crime.

The alarmed locks lock and unlock using one of the 3 supplied keys by inserting the key into the barrel of the padlock and turning the key to release the shackle.
The key turn also arms and unarms the anti-tamper 120dB alarm. If the user wishes to do so, they can lock the lock and unarm the lock simultaneously
The ZOVII alarmed padlocks are made from stainless steel which is an incredibly hard material to cut. The locking shackle is a minimum of 10mm in diameter which if attacked by a grinder would take considerable time and make a lot of noise. Not to mention that the 120dB anti-theft alarm would also be shrieking at this point, too.
To answer the question in short – no. It is not easy to attack the alarmed padlocks without making a hell of a lot of noise and needing professional tools.
