Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bubba64 Ryobi Motion Sensor and power supply unit
I am very satisfied with the Motion sensor. I use it inside my enclosed trailer for protection of my tools. The audible alarm is loud enough that I can hear from my driveway all the way to inside my living room. It is very easy to use and program to my own personal code. I would highly recommend to others to give it a try. The ryobi power unit did not work on my LG phone, but it did work on my wife's phone. Very easy to use and operate. Highly recommended. Ryobi is the ultimate to me in power tools and protection. To me' there is not any other product that I would trust as much as I do Ryobi. Keep up the great work.

I've used the product, at home, for about 3 1/2 months now. The alarm has gone off, without being triggered, at least 2 times now, and it's very loud!!
This happens consistently when the battery runs on low. In fact, that's 1 thing that is definitely consistent on this device! Without unscrewing the tiny screw and putting the rechargable battery on the charger there's no difinitive way to tell how much charge it has left.
The result is being woken up by a screaming siren at 3 & 5 AM, unexpectedly. Ryoba could have solved this by adding a, low battery shut off mechanism to the device.
But this would drive the price up.My 2 cats are likely traumatized and/ or partially deaf from enduring the false alarms. You never know, 1 of the 5 times that this thing has gone off, although highly unlikely, could have thwarted a killer?

This is a very well made motion detecting security alarm. It has the ability of arming and disarming the unit from the keypad on the motion detector, this allows the alarm to be used even if the included remote ever got lost. Considering the fact that tools and other belongings often cost quite a bit, the small $39 price of a quality security alarm, is not much at all to pay. When I seen this item online, I thought that it would be necessary to buy a separate battery, but this Tek4 motion detecting kit comes with a lithium ion battery & a charger included. I believe that all of the Tek4 products from Ryobi that end in the word kit, also have a lithium ion battery & charger included. I also have other Tek4 items, and I am very happy with the low price and high quality of Tek4 Ryobi products that I own.

This is a very reliable motion detecting alarm. Like advertised, it does provide 12 or more continuous days of coverage, this is if it is left of constantly, if turned on periodically, then it will last longer. The remote works well. The alarm itself is slightly less loud when compared to some other alarms, but this is mainly because the noise mechanism is covered by a mesh metal screen to prevent a thief from puncturing the noise mechanism, which would disable the alarm, so it is very well built. This alarm does not come with a swiveling mount like other motion detecting alarms, but it does come with a different type of mounting bracket. The quality Lithium Ion battery is great, charger is included. I would definitely suggest this alarm for the construction industry as well as for the protection of home belongings.

I've had trouble with the neighborhood kids getting into my yard and stealing stuff. I saw the Ryobi motion alarm and figured I'd give it a try. Mounted it up high on the wall on the outside of my shed and used the remote to arm it. That very night I woke up at 2:00AM to the sound of the alarm!! Looked out the window and saw 3 kids high tailing it out of the yard. That was three weeks ago and they haven't been back yet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tboom49 Works well and INSANELY loud if that's what you want....
Tested this model in our newly renovated home but decided not to keep it up. It works great. Crossed it's path about 20 feet away and the ear-crushing siren went off. I am not kidding you when I say this is incredibly loud for a battery operated unit. But it does do what it says....

I use this alarm mounted in my covered pickup bed. Even though the bed is locked up, it is nice to have the alarm when parked overnight at hotels, etc. The alarm is loud enough and lasts about a week or so on a full battery charge.
