I have had the remote alarm installed for about 4 weeks and was very pleased when I first installed the device. About 2 weeks after it was installed, the red light would flash an error code. I had to re-synchronize the switch with the base unit. After about another 10 days it happened again. The 2 devices are about 50 feet apart and well within the maximum range. If it fails again, I will try moving the base unit closer to the garage.
If your garage door has a large horizontal reinforcement ridge at the bottom of the door, you will need to construct a mounting surface that is flat from the garage floor to at least 4" up the door.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by siljalover wish i had gotten one years ago
it was kinda tricky to program the device, and hard to keep it stuck to my garage door, but once i figured it out, it's been great. at first i used the beeping alert, but it was a pain silencing it whenever i opened the garage door to get the paper for example. so i switched off the beeper and now just use the green and red light.. by the time i reach the remote in the house, the garage door has closed and (hopefully) the light shows green. i am very happy with this device - no more forgetting the garage door open or having something stuck underneath to let unwanted critters in! the electronics are nowhere worth the price, but what is the value of peace of mind? homer had it at my store for pickup in only a few days.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DIYDude Inconsistent operation, otherwise performs as needed
The unit is a great product in concept...and when it works. After installation it worked well, then at one point it would not stop the beeping alarm when the garage door closed. After occurring a second time a week later, I moved the receiver unit much closer to the garage, maybe 40 feet from the sensor, and all worked well...for a while. Same issue still occurs on occasion. The antenna wire has been readjusted several times. The current location requires it to only penetrate one wall to the garage.
Our main concern is being notified when the garage is opened, which it has done flawlessly. It just occasionally stays beeping when the garage closes, so we just cancel it manually at the receiver.

This was very easy to install. It works well and is well worth the money. I have purchased two so far. The first one I put in my moms house and the second one I will put in ours.
The only change I would make if I were designing this product is; I would have the alarm shut off after a few seconds. this would let a person know that the door was opening, but note being an annoying sound the whole time the door was open. This unit will work with any garage door.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Farn worth the wait
Had to wait for it, was on back order but was worth the wait. was an easy install. I like the audible mode which my previous system did not have. it is a must for home and garage security. liked it so well I purchased another system and gave it as a gift.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HandyGrandma Exactly What We Wanted
We needed a simple, inexpensive warning/alarm to alert us when the garage door was open. This provided us with the choice of either a loud alarm, or a quieter alert, plus a blinking red light to notify us when the garage door was open. Quick and easy to install and works as indicated. Have had this installed for about a month and am very pleased with the results. Signal is transmitted through garage wall and an interior hallway wall to the receiver which sits in the t.v. room.
Even if this only lasts for 6 months to a year, it is so inexpensive I wouldn't hesitate to replace it with the same model. We have had several thefts in the neighborhood because of unattended open garages, so we are now resting a little easier knowing we will be made aware when the garage door is open. Would definitely recommend this.

Looked for a long time for a product that was simple to install and you didn't need a smart phone for. This is just what we were looking for. Works just as described and hubby is very happy he doesn't have to go out to check if he left the door open. We have it on the flashing light but even the hard of hearing would be able to hear the alarm. It's loud enough to hear all over your house and would wake you up if you had it on alarm when you went to bed. So far no problems and we love it.
