Rated 5 out of 5Â by NHMike Great Value !
Easy to install and works great. I did not have room to mount on top of the power panel as suggested due to all the wires, so I mounted mine on a 3/4" PVC LB that I mounted on the side of my power panel at a knockout within easy reach. When activated by a power return it is VERY LOUD and can be heard throughout the house. So loud it almost hurts while getting to it to turn it off. I used to watch for neighbor's lights to come back on, now I know immediately when I can switch back from the generator.

Unit works great. Wrap around hot leg with electrical tape. This gives a tight fit. Sonalert is loud and I can hear it well at all locations. Added benefit is a magnet is on the back of the unit so you can place it on the box if the box is recessed. Good pricepoint as well.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by e3b3 Excellent, worth the money.
Very easy to install. The antenna does not stay coiled around the feed wire so you will need electrical tape, as suggested in the directions. The magnetic back is useful, my panel is in a corner, with the transfer switch next to it. I had no room to mount it to the main panel. I wired it and stuck it to the front of the transfer switch panel. VERY, very loud.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by VTHAN10 Reliable and loud as advertised
Connecting device is quite simple. I used zip ties to secure the lead to one of the 2 hot wires coming in from the power company. Sound is plenty loud; I could hear from inside house furthest point to device in garage. Mounted right above power panel. Used wall plate to conceal wiring and double face tape to adhere device to wall plate for "cosmetic appearance". Wish I ordered sooner since I connect my power generator directly to power panel through double breakers.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by ElToro Might work as intended, but not as advertised.
According to the product overview, the antenna senses the return of the utility current. This is impossible, since the main breaker is off, thus there cannot be any current flow. There can, of course, be voltage present. I suspect that in reality the antenna senses the presence of the return of the voltage from the utility, not the return of the current. Therefore, it will work as it is intended to work, although not strictly speaking as it is advertised.
