        Comments about RadioShack Portable Motion Detector Alarm/Chime:

        I almost didn't buy this product because of the negative reviews (didn't work, too loud). So I made sure I kept the receipt and opened the packaging carefully. I wanted to use it so that I could monitor whenever something came in the dog door. It works fine. I put it in chime mode, and it is not too loud at all (which is a good thing). I am happy I got it.

        Comments about RadioShack Portable Motion Detector Alarm/Chime:

        I have used this product several times from walk-in alert at business to notification in a designated spot in the house. My last use was to house train a puppy. Now it wont shut off so the puppy is confused. I need to replace it with another item similar.

              The chime works and the alarm lights the LED but no sound even after a long wait to arm it. Crazy expensive for DOA.

              Poor Design, Not Reliable,

              By Dennis

              from San Jose, CA

              Comments about RadioShack Portable Motion Detector Alarm/Chime:

              I bought one unit, it became defective, Sensor still work, the red LED flash when there is movement, But Alarm did not go off. Because it is still in Warranty Period, Store allow me to exchange for a new one. The new one was used for a little more than two months, the same situation again, the alarm become defective, Because it is out of warranty period. So, I decided to try other brand.

              Comments about RadioShack Portable Motion Detector Alarm/Chime:

              I work for a RadioShack and we use these on our front and back doors. After about a month they go out, circuit board fried. We have gone through 5 of them in the past 4 months. Instead I just used some parts and pieces and created my own motion activated device. As a customer doing it yourself is the cheaper alternative.

                Comments about RadioShack Portable Motion Detector Alarm/Chime:

                I own two of these motion detectors. I have found them to be ultra reliable. In particular, I have never had a false alarm. False alarms would be a problem for me, since I would have to grab my Glock, spring out of bed and wait in vain for an intruder to appear.

                    We use this above the entries to the store. It never misses a customer coming in, and the alarm is loud enough to hear anywhere in the store. It's a tough little guy ... a customer knocked it off the wall with the end of a rake, but it still worked even after bouncing off the floor! We're putting one above all our doors.

                    I put this product over a doorway and every time someone or something goes under it, you hear some type of alarm activate. It is loud, easy to hear in a different room, totally reliable, and you can feel more safe with this in your home. I really dont have anything to say on things that aren't so great about this product, because really, to me, there isn't!
