Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sarah Working well for us.
I'm using two of these sensors with the Chime unit to monitor the front and back door because my Grandfather has Alzheimer's and so wandering is a big problem. We've had the unit and one sensor for nearly 6 months now, and just added a second sensor today for the back door. It's been a life saver for us. I keep the chime unit in my room and now I can actually sleep, knowing that if he tries to go outside it will wake me. So far I haven't noticed any incidents of it not chiming when the door is opened as some have experienced, and I was worried about the distance after reading the reviews, but it's working like a charm in our 3 bedroom home even though my room is the farthest from the two doors. I had looked at much more expensive models, as well as full home alarm systems, before finally deciding to at least try this one since we really couldn't afford anything more expensive, and I'm so glad we did. I did however take the advice of many of the reviewers both here and at other sites and use the heavy duty 3m double sided tape instead of the included tape.
So while this system might not be ideal for every household, it has certainly made a huge difference for ours. And for this price, it's definitely worth a try for those who are also caring for adults or children for whom wandering is a concern.

Bought it for our office to notify us when a customer walks in so we can hear in the back. The sensor only worked a quarter of the time because the pieces had to be tightly pressed together. It claims they can be a 1/2" apart and work but it was not working. Very frustrating and waste of my time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by brillo This product solved our problem with front and rear entrances
I was skeptical after reading some reviews, but we have a gallery space which is long and narrow with several brick walls in between and no direct line of sight to the doors and by placing the main chime in the center room there is enough signal from either end to warn us that someone is entering the premises. Quite a great solution and very audible.

We have 2 of these and one was dropped and no longer worked. We just replaced it. We sometimes have trouble getting it positioned in a place with electricity, not too far from the door sensor, that is also where we can hear it well and so as not to have to turn it wide open on the volume and be too loud when you are next to it. Overall good product. Used in a retail store for areas that were hard to hear the door chimes already in place.

It's a little bit noisy. I prefer the sound to be better or can be a melody.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kelly Very easy to set up.
Product was ready to use right out of the box, just had to install sensor on front door. I'm in an upstairs office and when a customer or vendor would come in to the office I wouldn't know unless someone came and told me. Now I now instantly when someone comes in. Has been very helpful and less distruptive for my production staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RVLEBEAU Works BUT!
Don't rely on the double sided foam tape to hold the sending unit to your surface. The glue on the tape adheres to the surface, but not to the foam it's attached to from the supplier. I used the tape to attache both the sending unit and the magnet used to active the sender, neither stayed up more than 2 weeks. Like I said the adhesive sticks to the surface, in this case aluminum, but released from the foam after about 2 weeks. This happened on both pieces! I replaced their junk tape with 3M double sided tape and they have been up for over a month now! I mean really for the less than 2 square inches of tape they provide, how much could it cost to use quality?
Otherwise 5 stars would have been given. Works well, clear into the kitchen of our business
