To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This product is junk, the sensor is so sensitive even a mouse will set it off. I had it installed in my shed and it randomly goes off in the night (which your wife will appreciate!). Not worth the money
Perfect for a business! (Massage and Acupuncture) We just needed a notification when someone was coming into our office while in treatment rooms. The low setting is definitely loud enough. A simple ding dong is all it takes. Not sure if the other 30 alert sounds are necessary. (Jingle bells is an option 😆)
Great for giving a heads up when some pills into the driveway. However if you forget to unplug it at night it becomes a gateway to all of the home invasion fears you've ever had. A passing fox sets off a nightmarish search of the house with the family pistol searching for any evidence of an invader, sweat pouring down your face, adrenaline pumping, ready to defend your family by whatever means necessary... would buy again.
I just wanted it to chime when somebody walked through the door. That is impossible. It goes off from the tiniest motion anywhere within a 180 degree radius of the sensor. Shadows on the wall set it off. An insect flying by sets it off. Sometimes it goes off seemingly for no reason.
I was able to reduce the response angle some by wrapping a paper cone blinder around the unit to narrow the range, but it's still set off by a worm sneezing in China.
Edit: I finally figured out a major source of the random triggers.
I was installing updates on my phone so my phone was restarting several times over an hour or so and I noticed it would go off 2-3 times every time I started my phone.
So I turned off the 5G radio on my phone and the random triggers stopped.
Turns out it was the 5G handshake causing the random triggers. Every time the 5G radio loses connection and re-establishes it, the signal noise from the handshake causes the doorbell to go off repeatedly until the handshake is done.
We have a pretty large showroom and after the shutdown we've now run with a significantly smaller staff. For safety I wanted something that would give a little chime when someone walked in so if someone was in the back or downstairs they knew someone was here. It's painfully loud! Even on the low setting. And the variety of ring tones are horrific. That said, the motion sensor seems to work pretty well and it is meeting the need, but I wish it were quieter so that clients walking in couldn't hear it, even over the music.
In the time it took me to type this out, I had to unplug it. the range was extremely wide and it just kept going off over and over and over and over.... not great for when you're trying to talk to a client.
