Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jen Great product
I purchased this about 10 months ago for the entrance of our driveway. It's long and out of view from the house making it difficult to know if anyone is approaching our home. I installed the sensor at the base of our driveway, about 100+ feet from the kitchen window where the receiver sits. I stuck the sensor to a metal pole using adhesive tape. I fully expected the sensor to fall off the pole eventually, especially during our rainy Pacific NW winter, but that has yet to happen. I would have given 5 stars, however the receiver, I think, needs a volume control. The volume setting LO, is still too loud for me. I'd prefer a quieter option. As others have noted, the sensor is very sensitive. On windy days, bushy shrubs blowing in the breeze will repeatedly set off the receiver. I decided to write this review last night. We had guests over, and I didn't want the loud chime waking everyone in the night. While turning the unit off, I accidentally dropped the receiver on our tiled kitchen floor. I thought I broke it for sure. But no, it still works. Great product!

My house does not have any windows adjacent to the driveway, therefore I was totally blindsided by visitors. Be it a delivery person or some one soliciting I was always caught off guard. Now with the alert in place at least I get a heads up that someone is about to ring the doorbell. I love this product, it works very well. The only suggestion I have is to mount the sensor at least 4 feet of the ground, otherwise you may have animals setting it off in the wee hours of the morning and getting your spouse paranoid and unable to get back to sleep. It''s very sensitive. Also try not to aim at your neighbors house as it will also trigger any movement ( it has a decent range )..

Alert is installed at edge of range, chimes in frame part of house, kind of iffy in masonary part. Solution - move to framed area. Two levels, loud and Extra Loud, dog gets annoyed at E-L level.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OldMan peace of mind for an old, hearing impaired man
I have been hearing impaired for many years and although hearing aids assist me during the day, I am not able to wear them at night while sleeping. Without the hearing aids, my hearing is reduced to almost zero. My bedroom is located some distance from a large sliding door in the dining area, and from a garage entry and outdoor entry at the far end of my home. If anyone were to enter through these doors, I could not hear them. I have placed the detector in an area with direct line of sight to these doors and placed the receiver by my bed. I tested the unit and was amazed at not only the response time---an immediate detection of motion, but also the loudness of the alarm. The product is well built and easy to move to another location. Beautiful. I sleep much better now. The cost is a small price to pay for my peace of mind.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by toad Let us sleep in our own bed again
Product did exactly as I needed it to. I bought this product so that we could hear my mother in law if she got out of bed and walked out into the living room during the night. The way my house is setup, she has her own suite including a bedroom, hall and bath. So I positioned the sensor so that it would detect her only if she came out into the living area. I was able to do so by setting the sensor on that living room wall and swinging it towards the wall some. This reduced the sensors area of detection, meaning we could still walk around in the living room and it only goes off within a couple feet of the hallway doorway. The receivever is in the bedroom and set to low and to chime. IT works great.

I absolutely love this product. It's super simple to set up, works great, very sensitive to any movement. I have mine set up by my front door so I know when someone is approaching. It works so well that I can get to the door from the back bedroom before they can reach the door. It was a great investment.

Totally unreliable. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It alerts me to squirrels and rabbits more often than trucks and cars.
