    works as intended

    I bought 2 receivers and 4 motion sensors. Even though the motion sensors indicate INDOOR I use them outdoors under porches/eves. I called the company and they indicated it was ok. I selected this model because it is white and not gray like the outdoor models. The two receivers are needed and both placed in different bedrooms. The description could be improved. It only has 4 alert sounds. One is like a whistle which I selected for the carport. The others are melody or a ding dong sound. You should look at the documentation to see how to see what the sounds are and how to select the sounds. It works as intended but it does pickup small animals like a cat. But the sensors come with shields that can be configured to limit the sensor view. I have not done this yet but will if that cat continues to come around. I own the wireless doorbell from Dakota and initially thought the motion sensors/receiver would work similar to that - meaning it would have numerous sound selections available on the receiver for each sensor for each zone and the receiver would control the sound for each sensor. The sensor controls the zone and sound.

    Excellent unit

    My first unit was defective and was replaced immediately. I am using it to cover a carport in conjunction with a driveway alert and the combination works great. Each sensor is on a different chime so I know where I am getting an alarm. Have not received any false alarms.
