This was replacing a existing driveway alarm and it had a lot to live up to. We are very pleased it has a wide range of tunes and the volume is tremendous.
The only problems we had were pairing the transmitters,we found it difficult to get them both working at the same time,although it does happen intermittently, also they seem to need resetting after a power cut.
But overall the system is excellent
I read reviews saying these products aren't weather proof, so I added extra tape around the seals as I live on the side of a glen in an exposed weather location - They have worked fine through some pretty adverse weather! When I opened the package and read the instructions the script described the range as 100 feet - I had ordered a range of 100 metres. I wrote to the customer support team and within 12 hours I had a comprehensive response explaining that the product I had ordered was the correct model and that the instructions were a generic set. These units are working fine at 200 metres+ Some of the tunes [its a door bell after all, are cheesy and annoying but the selection is huge and easy to find a 'tune' or alert to suit. In summary - it does what it says on the tine...
These are really effective and actually work well, even through thick walls and from a far distance. Mine works up to around 30 metres away from the receiver. However, it is not waterproof in wild weather and water does get inside, but it seems to dry out fine and start working again (i have built some housing for it now). If you want it to be discreet at night though, the blue LED does light up, which cannot be effectively covered up.
Although this is an alarm I'd have expected it to have an alarm beep or sound.. But it played merry Christmas and rudolf the reed nose raindeer not what I had in mind for a deterrent ...
Still if your looking for a alarm with a nice tune, there are several tones to choose from
Shortly after this review I was contacted by the conpany who sent me FREE OF CHARGE an alarm similar to the one above but in keeping with what I wanted so 15/10 for customer service
Just arrived today was installed and working within 20 minutes definitely no rocket science needed so simple to set up and easy to position fitted at front gate approx 40 feet away from receiver works spot on had to trim a small bush to stop it from false alarms but it's ok fitted second pir on rear gate approx 90 feet away from sensor it has to pass signal through three brick walls to reach reciever and it works perfect so it's a wait and see the test of time did notice it go off when I watered the garden and the sprinkler sprayed water past the sensor not on the sensor will have to see what happens in the rain will post again if problems occur
pleased initially but sensor defective after just
two months use, and in a sheltered/dry position.
sensor sometimes flashes and alerts but misses
most targets. defeats whole point of having it.
Does the job but the ring tones are a bit limited - needs an alarm tone. Seller 1 by One got in touch with me in response to my feedback to advise they are working to update the ringtones on the next model. Nice to know they are listening to customer feedback.
I was contacted by 1byone customer service after returning this product due to issues with range. They suspected the unit was faulty and sent me another to try. The second unit was much better and works well to alert me of anyone coming entering the driveway. At 150 feet I suspect I am operating on the limit of wireless range, but so far the operation seems reliable -especially given the reasonable initial cost of the item.
It is a great gadget & it reliably does what it is supposed to. The range has been particularly impressive as the sensor is a long way from the receiver in my set up with trees, walls & even a hill side in the line of sight. If the sensor is kept out of direct sunlight you get no false alarms so find a shady spot for it or make it a little sun shelter.
Would have easily been 5 stars if it wasn't for the 1970s style choice of alert tones - settled for a plain bing bong rather than the Yellow Rose of Texas & other naff options but looking forward to the Christmas options when we get to December!!
I bought this as we have a back office in our shop but it's impossible to hear the front door from there. it works really well and was very easy to install. There are plenty of tunes to choose from and volume settings. The only slight niggle is having to reset the tune and volume every time I turn it on but it only takes seconds to do this.
